Our Lady gazes down at rocks and sedum while the blue bottle bush scans for evil spirits and the fire pit awaits the flame of a match. Granddaughters Cassie, Jordan, Katie and Allison made the painted flower pot some years ago. It was much taller but clumsy me broke the bottom pot.
The herb garden, just getting started this year, now that the daffodil tops are gone. It is so convenient to have herbs right by the porch steps. Sometimes I plant a cherry tomato plant in here and it will keep bearing until December if I'm lucky because this location is so protected from the weather.
