We spent most of the weekend out in our front and back yard–weeding, raking, planting…just name a gardening activity, we did it! Having a garden is a lot of hard work, but, as I think I have written on previous occasions, it is also wonderful in many ways. For instance, we have heaps of herbs: tarragon, oregano, chervil, parsley and different types of thyme. And, of course, wild (and very sharp-tasting) arugula.
This is a rose blooming right now out in our back yard. It’s an English rose called “Shakespeare” that we bought last year. I think it’s gorgeous and oh sooo fragrant. A real joy for the senses.
