That Time of Year Again

This is the Roo-Gala that Mom has growing on the porch. (She says it's yummy. I tried some ... Blech!)You'd think that was plenty for your average bean, but No-o-oh! It's the time of year that Mom goes out to buy dirt and then put stupid green Herbies in it. There's two kinds of Thyme (time?) some Mint, Basil, Oregano, some Sage and Rosemary and Chives. Here's some Parsley.
Here's the best bit. Every year Mom puts flowering plants in pots on the porch railing

You know how Mom says her favorite color isn't pink? Well, check this out.

The herb garden seems to be seriously lacking catnip! Do I need to have the "man in the brown shorts" make an emergency delivery? I have to look out for you !! Where is all of Mom's basil??

Millie - your Mom is just SO energetic and organized - where does she find the time?

I think she has what we humans call "green fingers".

We are impressed with your mums gardening efforts. It must be nice to watch things grow and bloom after such long cold snowy winters.

My mum is great at growing weeds.

Parker said...

We have all of the same stuff! Even pink Daliahs!

Mom says pink isn't her favorite color either! But you wouldn't know if from the colors of the flowers in the garden!
