The Scent Of Summer

Pull up a chair among the Thyme and Lavender.

I once dreamed of having a little greenhouse that I grew little pots of Herbs.

It’s good to dream.

Now, snap out of it…I have to weed and water!

Clay Pots

Clay pots are affordable, practical and become more beautiful with age.

Over time they weather and absorb mineral salts from the soil.

If the conditions are right, a layer of green moss will adhere to the pot.

This shed at Snug Harbor Farm holds hundreds of their beautiful custom clay pots.

When you visit a garden center and pay just as much attention to the

weathered greenhouse doors as the plants and flowers; that’s me.

These are the doors that lead to the Shade Room at Terrain in Pennsylvania.

If only I could find this color at the paint store.

The Cosmos are winding out of their pots.

I think they are looking for Spring.

With more cool weather expected,

it’s safer in the greenhouse.

I’m itching to get into the garden.

It will be weeks before plants and seeds can be dropped into the raised beds,

but getting the beds ready with new compost and some new mulch around the kitchen garden can happen just as soon as it stops snowing!

The greenhouse needs new paint and some repairs this spring,

Rabbit Run Cottage is changing it’s colors this year,

and the empty chicken coop is going to undergo some changes.

I am opening up the little garden to a few Garden Club tours this summer,

so the pressure is on!
