The Garden

Mom has been working in her garden, and of course I have been snoopervising.

Every day this week, the man in the bloo shorts or Mr Brown has brought boxes of plants. This is twenty mint plants for the studio side of the house. It doesn't get much sun, and it's kind of ugly there now. Mom wants the Mint to take over and give her a lovely "sea of green" to look out at when she is in the studio sewing. Plus it will smell nice.

These plants will fill in the empty spots in the shade garden. Actually, it's funnier than that. Mom was surveying the garden one morning and noticed that three of her Hosta plants were not coming up. So she ordered replacements.  Guess what "came up" after all!! So now we have a few extra and Mom has to figure out what to do with them.

This doesn't look like much, but it's Thyme, Rosemary, Tarragon, Sage and Oregano. Mom's got to plant seeds for Basil, Parsley and Chives this weekend. She will also plant Kale and Arugula and lettuces.

I have other picture I want to show you, but they are stuck somewhere on the innernets so they will have to wait.

In other news, Mom and I have made plans to visit our Mary-land family. I am so excited.

I'm so glad that you're snoopervising, Millie. I infer that your mom didn't have much opportunity to build a garden at your last home, so she can probably do with your advice. Keep it up.
