About the Garden

We are redoing part of our garden out the front of the house.  Planted little lavenders which will make a lovely boarder.  More plants will be planted behind them eventually of a different kind.
A few photos of flowers still blooming in our Autumn.





              The above plant is called a Plumbago, and has now been cut back.


A NEW BOOK by R. Mac Wheeler

A visceral tightrope of deceit, abuse, and murder.

Aran’s
a researcher—for a killer. Not a profession of her choice. With her keeper’s
death and the end of her servitude she may never have to plan another
assassination, but she will kill to survive. Those who contracted her mentor’s
hits will come for her. She knows too many secrets accumulated the past decade analyzing
the routine of those tagged for death.

  8. The lavender border will be wonderful. Grab a supply of little bags and jars for eventual storing of the dried product!

    Plumbago almost made me feel back pain! Such a pretty blossom to wipe all thoughts of aches and pain away! :)

  10. You're tackling your garden the way I should have done mine. One variety of plant at a time, with planning involved. Mine is a mish-mash of everything, while yours is lovely.

  19. Lavender in a garden is just lovely.
    I do like the shade of your Plumbago, certainly blooms to be enjoyed.

    Sounds as if you have a good plan for Autumn planting, and it is so lovely to enjoy the planting and see them grow and eventually come into flower.

    All the best Jan
