Wow, what a difference only 2 months has made with my herb garden--
It's actually beginning to look quite lush! I wasn't expecting that, considering I just replanted this year.
The sage, lemon balm and periwinkle are growing like a house afire and the apple blossom yarrow, thyme and lavender are doing quite nicely, too. Now it might look as though the chamomile (by the turtle) isn't doing so well, but actually about this time of year its done blooming. Sometimes in late September a new batch grows up again and blooms, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that its self-seeded and I'll see it again-- if not this season, then in the spring.
Everyone is doing nicely on this side of the garden, too. Sometime after my last garden update I planted foxglove, hyssop and comfrey on this side. If I'd known that comfrey (big and leafy in the right front corner) was going to get so big in diameter, I'd have planted it further back! I still have 2 more spaces to fill, I might do another foxglove along the back of the fence-- or move the comfrey; and as for the other space... hmmm...
At any rate, I am quite thrilled to have my herb garden back again, its nice to go out and spend time with my little green friends.
