Ahh, summer. In some ways it feels as if last summer was years ago, and in other ways it feels like yesterday. I love this season...not as much for the heat as the wonderful things that happen in summertime. One of these things includes growing a garden. This year Mother and I decided to try using some raised beds in our gardens. My sweet Daddy built them for us. ♥ They have proved very nice in the weeding department, but perhaps a little too nice in the drainage department. ;) When we don't get enough rain (which has been the case for most of this year so far) we have to keep the garden heavily watered with hoses, and the last thing we need is soil that drains the water before the plants have time to get any.
Anywho...I thought I'd post some pictures of the herbs in Mom's garden, and some of the sunflowers in mine. :)
Oregano with it's tiny white blossoms.
Dill and it's seed head. Perfect for making pickles with! :)
Sunflowers against my garden fence.
