This is the Sahara; a little herb garden to the side of our house. We call it the Sahara because it is the only place in our yard that really gets any sun. The rest of the yard is shaded by giant maple trees. With all of the plants on sale, I decided to fill in the herb garden a bit. I bought some different sages, hyssop and winter savory. I'm not sure what I am going to do with the last two, but I wanted a section of the garden that smelled good. That it does! I also have lavender, chives, oregano, mint, etc.
I love lavender and, after our crazy winter, our plants are looking a bit shabby. The other day, my mom and I stopped by a nursery to see if they had any left. While I was there, I told them about the chocolate an orange mint I had just planted. Well, let me just tell you that if your ever want to send a real gardener into orbit just tell them you planted mint! I knew it spread, but being the quasi gardener that I am I thought it would make a nice ground cover... Oh well - live and learn. I might be a little slow, but eventually I get it.
