Most of my garden has been planted. I still have some transplanting and bed building to do, but considering that we’re not even a week out from the last frost date, I’m in pretty good shape.
I transplanted these peonies from my husband’s grandparents’ house. I was worried that they wouldn’t survive the move, but they’re thriving and full of buds!
My strawberry plants arrived from the mail order nursery in pretty poor shape, but now they’re thriving in a mix of compost, peat moss, and vermiculite.
I transplanted lavender from around the yard to this bed under my kitchen window. I’m hoping the wind will blow just right ;)
And of course, no garden is complete without a set of vintage gnome statues in need of painting :)
Your garden looks great! I am envious of your lavender. I am growing it for the first time this year. My plants are still small.
Your blog inspired me to start a herb garden. I am really enjoying it. I was able to make pesto from our basil last week. I never had pesto before – it was wonderful!
I love the gnomes! My MIL gave us a vintage garden gnome for our anniversary last month. Perfect addition to our garden!
Thanks, Melisa :)
Growing lavender from seed takes a while, but all of mine was started from seed, it really takes hold in the second year.
I can’t wait for fresh basil! My plants are still babies.

Hi Sage! Your garden is so charming…I love your little strawberries!! Thank you for your nice note regarding the pie crust mystery. I’m so happy it helped!!
P.S. Your gnome collection has me enchanted…I’m having deep regrets regarding giving up our two gnomes several years ago!!

Oh, you actually have grass!! I know, a funny thing to envy, but we haven’t been able to get a lawn to grow out back lol.
