Sometimes I feel like the garden is the only place where I feel completely at peace. There is so much turmoil in our world today that I tend to get caught up and feel like I am drowning in problems by the end of the day. Spending a few minutes in the garden right when I come home from work is often the best part of my day.
Remember the dirt patch by my front door? That is now the herb garden. I have cilantro, thyme, oregano, parsley, and pineapple sage planted there along with the mint that’s still trying to take over.
Yesterday was the first semi-warm day we have had in weeks. It’s been so cold and wet this winter! Lots of rain and even some snow flurries, which is rare. Gavin and I took advantage of the warmth to make some plans for this year’s garden.
