It's Red, White And Blooming Thyme

Oh the joy. Planting thyme has arrived, and I am happy.
Our recent weather woes of frost and freeze, hopefully, is
behind us. Soil temperatures have warmed up for planting
and the soil has dried out. So grab your annuals and
tomatoes and plant away.

In the spring at the end of the day,
you should smell like dirt. 
                                -Margaret Atwood

It was a beautiful day to plant up my herb jars. The sun was
shining, an afternoon breeze lightened the 80 degree 
temperature. The robins, doves and cardinals were singing
their distinctive tunes and ignoring my garden puttering.
I took a moment and watched the carpenter bees buzzing 
around the potting shed looking for just the right spot to tunnel 
into the wood to lay their eggs. We seemed to tolerate each other,
as we both had a job to do. They are a nature friend.

The beautiful spring came; and when Nature
resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt
to revive also.
                   -Harriet Ann Jacobs

There …flowers all planted, tomato plants in and caged up.
Next up for me, work on the fairy gardens. 
Things are finally moving along.

and apron, watch
for it.

This is Memorial Day weekend; Monday May 30th is the
holiday. My Mom always referred to it as Decoration Day.  
It was common to visit cemeteries to decorate the graves, 
mainly military ones and place flowers and flags to honor 
their service. We honor those who have given their lives, 
we honor those still serving. Thank you.

I promised you a recipe. 
is the place to check it out.
Next up, more info from the garden, and another recipe?
