Bonjour from my Normandy garden.
|this hard working honey bee just adores a yellow iris or two|
To get away from the noise and the mess I escaped to my potager, behind the house, where I am in the process of creating a new herb garden.
(Thyme; lemon thyme; chives; basil; rosemary; parsley and coriander are all thriving well and just as soon as it stops raining this weekend I plan on taking photographs to share).
Back to Tuesday - so involved was I with those bunches of sweet smelling herbage that I mis-stepped, lost my footing and fell backwards landing heavily on the wooden fence enclosing the vegetable bed behind me.
Luckily no broken bones but my derriere has a humongous bruise which bears an uncanny resemblance to a map of the world, (or so I'm told!)
Proverbs 16:18 KJV
"Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall".
A couple of days later I was mobile again and in need of some plant therapy so off we went to the garden centre for geraniums and a few more herbs.
An idea I brought back from our recent trip to Greece is to add a small pot of fragrant thyme or rosemary to the table when dining al fresco, simple yet stylish.
(Note to self: go on internet, search for small terracotta pots).
As a tribute to my many friends who live in Texas I added a pack of 6 "Tex Mex Hot Pink" simple geraniums to my cart.
Not to be outdone by the red hat gals, my blush pink roses continue to gracefully adorn the old stone walls.
