I was out working in my poor neglected herb garden today. My periwinkle is encroaching on my lemon balm, my lemon balm spreading through my lavender and sweet woodruff, my tansy is attacking everything. But I'm quite happy to see that my thyme has taken hold quite nicely, at long last!
I spent some time weeding and cutting my little green friends back, while Moose enjoyed a bit of coveted and rare outdoor time. I brought in some handfuls of lemon balm, tansy flowers and lavender and hung them up in the kitchen to dry. I don't know why the handles to my kitchen cupboards are in the middle of the door, way above my head, but the handles do work well for hanging herbs. I gathered some calendula heads, too, and spread them on a paper towel lined cookie sheet to dry.
I also filled my bird feeder (finally got more seed yesterday) and watered the lawn. Plenty more to do in the yard, but at least I made a start.
