A Very Quiet Day

Fog drifted in and out of the woods and temperatures climbed up toward 60 again.

Planted a number of flats of herbs and wild flowers. I am really looking forward to spring when I can walk out my door and pick herbs from the pots on my deck.

Photo from last summer before we set plants out

"Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders."- Henry David Thoreau

I can't wait until I can plant my herbs, but it is too early here. We have to wait until there is no chance of frost so I have a few more weeks. Oh to smell basil again! It is so exciting to anticipate the spring bounty we will have in daffodils and tulips and hyacinths, and I am watching them grow daily! The daffies are beginning to bloom now. Almost time to get the camera!

So glad that bug let go of you quickly and you could do the planting! Looking forward to pictures from this year.

Beautiful supply of herbs you had growing there. I'm with Sky on anticipating the smell of fresh basil. Somehow dry basil just doesn't have the flavor of fresh at all, the way oregano does.

We've got our basil seeds starting in the greenhouse. I feel giddy just thinking about the possibilities of spring.

Isn't it wonderful that it is finally time to start a few plants! I happened upon your blog by way of Ontario Wanderer and imediately gave it a bookmark. Great photos!

umm love that quote!

today it is raining here which I love--- getting the ground soft and ready for planting but not before we have to endure mud season-- which I do not love so much.

Ah, spring is sprunging or something like that. I can see the mountains covered with snow poking up through the clouds here in L.A. We are still unseasonably cold here, with more rain expected.

Oh....you make me crave basil. I love fog too and I wish I could see the fog drift in and out of the woods. It's so dry where I'm at that fog is rare. By the way, I loved the dove post from a few days back too!
