I made my self a promise and then promptly didn’t follow it.
1. Write a post and save it
2. Reflect and add
3. Read my notes again
4. Read again then publish
I am driving to work reflecting on the last post, then it hit me what I had left out, so while banging my head against the steering wheel, well here it is
a. I meant to say how poised and graceful Judith Lucy is
b. Also on the radio they were talking about laws that are being repealed as Barnett has just repealed a small handful and will endeavour to continue in this fashion for several years. I assume that is providing he remains in power
The station mentioned one law in New Jersey that has yet to be repealed and that is:
On Sunday’s it is against the law to wash your donkeys
Here is today’s effort (well I wrote this one last week and forgot about it, see reflecting doesn’t always work because I forgot about this one)
We are still pinching ourselves with the success of our garden. I think the research we did is part of the reason. We have lots of new growth, and some flowers, the Jasmine is blossoming at the moment (planted about 8 weeks ago) as are the dwarf Gardenias out the front.
|The Jasmine needs some trellis for containment|
In our last home we had some very hardy Rosemary that we used all the time in cooking and for decoration. Now a year later we have planted some dwarf Rosemary and I used some for the very first time in a roasted sweet potato dish.
There is nothing like the taste of fresh herbs
My aim is to have one of those troughs, (seen in photos somewhere, white in colour perched on a wrought iron base) unfortunately I can’t remember where it was I saw one, presumably a garden centre.
I often buy cut herbs from the supermarket and either forget I bought them or put them in a vase on the bench, that way I remember to use them. Frustratingly I buy herbs; put them in the fridge, forget them, then resort to cleaning up the soggy mess they have become
|We bought our Rosemary from Dawsons in Forrestfield|
|Cut and ready to use|
|Looks sad without any mulch. Michael is still debating (procrastinating, just plain well not ready yet) about what sort of mulch to get|
|4 of them sit in here between the Jasmine|
|A before photo, no after. The smell is divine|
Any ideas or have you seen one of those planters I am talking about?
