Elisa, over at Elisa Loves, decided to host a weekly garden party, showing off what's growing in each of our neck of the woods. While Elisa has far better photography skills (I have none!), I thought it would be fun to join up. This past Sunday, I walked around the house to see what was happening, and was pleasantly surprised by what I found. It was such a beautiful day to play outside, but between the bright sun and Miss Z in my arms, my photos are worse than normal, haha! Be inspired... Link up... What's growing in your yard?
Catnip in bloom. My cat likes this herb, fresh or dried. This herb sure grows easily (it is a mint after all!), but it is easy to keep pruned - and still looks nice when you do.
Pretty lilac bloom - much prettier than this photo shows. Mine are a purply-pink and smell oh so good!
First greenery in the garden: onions, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, and some lettuce and spinach starting to sprout.
Our weigela bush out front in bloom. This bush is nice. I love its loose form and multiple blooms.
English thyme. I love herbs. Love, love, love them. I am not a huge thyme person for my food, but to grow it? Heavenly! It smells wonderful, looks great, takes a beating and still grows beautifully. It grows so well I need to trim it multiple times throughout the growing season.
An early bloomer. It only grew about three inches tall before popping out. A splash of bright orange always gives me a smile.
Looks like a maple tree is trying to take root behind a front bush. The little "weed" on the right is such a pretty little thing - delicate heart-shaped leaves with small, buttercup-like flowers. The best thing I love about this plant is that it is edible.
I will have the kids take a walk with me, and snap a few pictures themselves for a future post, but this time around I enjoyed a little quiet walk.
