This is the small herb garden I planted recently. It is a work in progress. I probably won't add any more plants, but I want to add rocks etc. Planted here from back to front are, Grapefruit Mint, Sweet Basil, Rosemary, Greek Oregano, Sage, Parsley and Thyme. It will be interesting to see what comes up next year on its own, and what I need to replant. The herbs are handily accessible because the porch is right off the kitchen.
Below is a picture of the back porch. I planted Zinnias along the length of the porch, and there are many flower buds so I am hopeful.

My brother-in-law tragically passed away from injuries he suffered in an automobile accident on Wednesday, July 7th. It is impossible to believe he is isn't with us any longer. Tom was a brilliant jazz musician who played the piano, organ and keyboard. He had a witty sense of humor, and had an infectious laugh that I can hear now. He was a loving man who is deeply missed by his family.

My husband drew the name for my blog giveway. The lucky winner is Recycled Rita. I have contacted her by email, and I'm looking for her to send her postal address. Thank you to everyone who left comments, and also to everyone who became a follower.
Congratulations Rita! I hope you will enjoy the goodies.

Happy 4th of July to you all.
During a break in the hot weather a couple of days ago, we spent a girls' day out at Stream Cliff Herb Farm in Indiana. We had a lovely lunch, and enjoyed the beautiful grounds. I was inspired to plant a small herb garden of my own, and purchased a few plants. My herb garden is a work in progress, but has come a long way from the weed patch from which it started. Nearby the farm we saw a beautiful old covered bridge where we stopped to snap a few pictures.
