Today’s Bounty: a Few Garden Cuttings……..

Here’s a few photos from the herb garden at our business in Woodstock…………just picked these hydrangea beauties from out in the front of the property. They are still blooming quite a bit, considering our 90 degree weather for this month.

So I always place them in my office to make it cheerier and easier for me to do my paperwork. I add some flowering mint from the herb area and it makes my work space smell so good. And the mint lasts for at least two weeks in water.

This morning is so pretty outside, that I just could not resist sharing these quick photos taken today with you!

I’m growing snap beans this year too. I like to snap and freeze them for some fresh Winter veggies. I forgot that the bean plant flowers as well! For lunch at my shop I cut them into bit sizes and add them to my salad. Very yummy and healthy!

Do you have a favorite veggie you like to plant in your garden? Would love to hear about your gardening tips!

Butterflies from Heaven…….

We always plant Lantana in our gardens at home and at our business, so we attract all the beautiful butterflies. Even the hummingbirds love the Lantana. Here’s a couple of photos of the flower blooms and the butterflies enjoying them……

The end of this Summer has been quite toasty here in the South. So that calls for doing some inside projects. I scored this antique chair during our neighborhood garage sale back in the Spring. It was actually placed at the curb with a “Free” sign on it! So I decided that I could do a little face lift on it. With some left over front door paint I had at the business, here is the result of a little TLC………

Hope you are enjoying your Summer! What have you been up to during this heat wave?
