Blank canvas

24 Oct

One reason my TO DO list for the garden beds this year was sooo long is that the kitchen/herb garden was enlarged.  Oregano, lavender, lemon balm and a butterfly bush were undisturbed.  The retaining wall was reconfigured for 30% + larger space.  This ground squirrel view of the new space is nearly a blank canvas.

New kitchen/herb garden

Warm, sunny fall weekend days are perfect for planting.  Last week I planted rue (herb used in Mexican recipes), “arp” rosemary (supposed to be perennial) and astilbe (flower).  This weekend I found yarrow and cardinal flowers.  All five are new experiments for me.

New additions
