Herbs and Grapevines--My Corner of the World

This summer the usual porch plants were so expensive that I settled for herbs to fill our galvanized pots and other containers. Our beagle and our neighbor's pups enjoy the lovely smells, too. What you see in the photo above is sage, Thai basil, thyme, oregano, and stevia.

Thai basil

Lemon thyme with the baby palm

New grape for the other end of the porch. That is a hummingbird bush just starting to flower to the left.

We have enjoyed sitting out here this summer. Mostly just for coffee and only for a few minutes at a time. And the rains have kept everything green and growing so far. I haven't had to water anything extra.

Even the pond is filling up again slowly.

Summer isn't over here until September, so who knows what is still to come here at Wetcreek.

Wat een heerlijke veranda en die kruiden is een heel goed idee, kun je gemakkelijk wat sprietjes knippen voor in de keuken en het ruikt ook nog eens lekker als ze even aanraakt wanneer jullie daar aan de koffie zitten.
