Today in the Garden

Today we are enjoying a beautiful Spring rain. It is so wonderful to have such a gentle transition to Spring. Last year, we transitioned directly into a dry summer it seems. This Spring lends itself to a plethora of gardening opportunities. Here are pictures of what's growing in the Hill Country Garden, or Basil's Garden named after Basil the cat. In raised beds there are grape vines as well as onions, tomatoes, peppers and basil. Also growing, amongst other herbs, is Bee Balm (pictured). I plan on harvesting the leaves for a special salve and lotion I'm developing. Well, I'm off to have rain drops fall on my head and to see what else is poking up ready to say hello!
