September 2004

I have been waylaid by unexpected surgery and I miss my gardens terribly.
I did get out to the herb garden today and I harvested lavendar, lemon verbena, St Johns Wort, calendula, catmint, thyme… armloads of it. Of course, it was much too soon to be puttering in the garden and I regretted it immediately. But I couldn’t resist.
Someone was kind enough to drive out to my vegetable garden and pick what they could. After the week I’ve had, my table piled high with the bounty was a beautiful sight. It tasted awfully good too.
