Watching T.V.

Willow watching Vampire Diaries with me. She's Team Stefan, whereas, I'm more Team Damon.
After farm chores on the cold morning I ate breakfast watching one of my DVRed TV shows, Vampire Diaries...Willow really seemed to enjoy it. She found the whole drama intriguing. I think we might have another V.D. fan here.
I'm glad we have this bonding time. :)

That catnip that I told you I had growing...well, its been stripped of its leaves. It seems, surprise...surprise, that my three cats like it.

I planted it for them, but not for them to devour now. I wanted to be all resourceful and dry it to put in their toys.

~Sheesh~ There goes that plan!

Next time I will put it where they can't get it. I wonder where that is?

My Lil Herb Garden

I'm growing herbs and they're not dead!!! I've never had much luck growing herbs, both in pots and in the garden. The one herb that did grow well for me was lavender, and that was only after a few attempts.

I tried it in a pot at first but was never successful. It just so happened the dog had started a hole by the front path, so I plopped my current lavender plant in it. Violia! It loved it there and thrived.

Everytime I walked down that path I was surrounded by the soft scent of lavender.

Now someone else is enjoying it.

The first plant I bought this spring for my new place was lavender...but it didn't last a week. I thought I would be able to keep lavender in a pot now that I had a little bit more experience gardening. I was wrong. So I quit trying to grow lavender...for now.

My other herbs; Basil, oregano, thyme, Rosemary and catnip are doing beautifully. I love that I can walk out my kitchen door and get fresh herbs. I think my food tastes better...maybe...hopefully.

I'm still hoping I can grow lavender with the rest of my herbs. If anyone has any suggestions for growing lavender on pots please let me know.

Just Outside

This is a row of peonies getting ready to bloom right outside my back door.  Have I mentioned that I really love where I live? 

Well, I do.
