I just had to share with you a picture of my three frogs! lol These guys live on my patio all year round. They just sit there so stately and silent. They are aging gracefully too I might add. They are about 5 years old now. It is so funny when you all of the sudden look at things that maybe you see everyday, differently! What do you have on your patio or porch that has been there for years that today you might see "in a different" light or have a renewed appreciation for???? Happy Friday!

It is that time of year again when my chives are in bloom. I absolutely love this herb. It is so forgiving if you ignore it, it blooms profusely in the spring in a beautiful poof of purple! It is so pretty that I have to forgive its only fault...all the little seeds it sprinkles all over my garden. You really have to dead-head them once the blooms start to fade or you will have a SEA of CHIVES next year! It is a bit of work when you have as many clumps of chives as I do but being able to go out and cut fresh chives for a baked potato any time during growing season is so worth it........
