Bird’s-eye view

Space in the garden. The final frontier!

This year I finally showed up at the nursery at the right time to find one of my favorite grasses, the Red Hook Sedge.  Here it is in constellation with my Black Mondo Grass. I’m normally not a fan of grasses but, I think these two are totally far out!

Note to self…

Grow more chamomile! 

I was  very happy to see that some chamomile had reseeded itself this year. I can’t remember the last time I planted it. It had to be years ago when my kids were little. I was really into trying to start everything from seed. I bought many packets of seed to start my garden; veggies, herbs, flowers,  and even blueberry, which turned out to be very difficult!

That was when I started growing German Chamomile. I loved it. The kids loved it.

My oldest son loved to make tea from what we found in the yard and around the neighborhood. We mixed the chamomile with everything: mint, rose hips, orange peel, warm milk and honey. It was good!

I always watched for where it might pop up again in the garden but, I hadn’t seen it in years. Then this year it was back. One plant, very pretty.

Something bright for what ails you.

It’s another gray morning in PT.

The kind of gray that makes it difficult to distinguish the time of day. I thought I’d send out this picture from a couple of days ago of the morning glory climbing up my garden fence.

So, I got bored with my hedge….

Time to Prune!

I planted a Sitka laurel hedge about ten years ago. For something a little different, I’ve decided to add a swooping curve to the top.
