Check out my garden

See those tiny little sprouts? I lovingly collected the dill seeds and cilantro seeds when my herbs bolted (went to seed) last summer. Then the seeds were planted a few weeks ago and here they are growing!

The rosemary plant is new. I did not dig up my rosemary plant for the winter and bring it inside and therefore needed to buy a new plant. I will dig it up this fall and bring this guy inside!



See my chives? I didn't have to plant them this year! Those chives came back from last year without any extra care from me. Chives are awesome! New this year I bought sage because I ate incredible fries with fried sage in Boston in December and I also bought Cinnamon Basil. Last year we had three basil plants, Michael, Thai, and Greek. The Thai and Greek were the biggest producers of the three. I'm sure I'll end up buying a Thai or Greek plant soon.



See that green plant peeking out of the strawberry pot? It's a strawberry plant. I planted about 24 strawberry plants this spring. Some of them look really good and others might not make it. This is my first time growing strawberries. I already have had a bunny try to pull an entire strawberry plant out of the pot.



The rest of my yard is for flowers. Enjoy

Azaleas





The last of the daffodils. The traditional all yellow were the first to bloom and these bloomed later. The first one has a pink center and the second has an orange center.





After the incredible storm we had on Sunday many of my tulip heads broke off their stems.


I have a few other things blooming in my yard. Spring is making me very happy!

I love all the herbs! I had some dill two years ago and overnight rabbits ate all of it! Didn't touch the cilantro though.
