While sitting in my rocking chair, I had a thought. I decided to challenge myself to use each one of my herbs to make really easy and delicious dishes.


My Rosemary is out back in a different garden. Rosemary, is a much hardier herb and grows to be quite large. Planting the Rosemary in the ground only made sense.

Flat Leaf Italian Parsley

Starting soon, I’ll be profiling each of these herbs and incorporate them into a main or side dish. Fresh herbs bring so much flavor and to any recipe. They give the dish a gourmet touch. Well, I better get started on my first dish! Happy Cooking!

Summertime In The Garden


My Agapanthus and Lavender are blooming beautifully. I’m so ready for the foundation to be finished so we can start on our outdoor entertainment area. I have this vision in mind of how everything is going to look, but like everything else, these things take time and money.

Anyway, I thought I’d post a few pics on how the landscaping is going away from the construction area. That area is just a hot mess. You’ll see that I like sectioning off different areas with a variety of trees, shrubs. or flowers. I think it looks, I don’t know, pretty cool.

My cactus garden might very well get out of hand. This one’s growing fast.


Oh!, and we expanded a sitting area in the back part of the yard. We just laid a few more stones for a contrast in color, it needed it.

Living in the south can sometimes be a challenge when trying to grow certain plants. The sun is so strong and the humidity is so high at times that I can barely stand it, let alone the plants.

One of my absolute favorite plants is lavender.  When I’m visiting my daughter in San Francisco, I noticed they grow like crazy up there.

They do sell lavender here so I’m assuming they should grow here. Someone somewhere is playing a bad trick on me. because I can’t seem to keep one alive. I couldn’t help myself I bought another one and I’m gonna try again.
