Herb Garden Project

August 5th, 2013

Every year around my birthday we usually end up wrapping up another outdoor project. It’s never planned this way, it’s just that every outdoor project is done on “free time” and with all of that “free time” that we do (not) have, any spring projects end up finishing around the beginning of August, and it usually leads to more projects.

We really wanted a vegetable garden this year but with the roof getting blown off our home in the winter leaving us with essentially three rooms needing to be gut-renovated (demo with plaster and lathe is not fun, let me tell you), the free time to achieve what we want by way of a veggie garden would not have been accomplished.

And without further adieu, behold our new mini herb garden! I am super excited about it. It started in spring and it was finished yesterday with the help of a few of my very best friends. It has Lavender, Sage, Oregano, French Lavender & Rosemary & my frog buddies, two of them playing chess in the foreground with the main frog fountain.  These are just a few iPhone shots.  I promise to take better “Afters” when the real “After” happens.

After: With blue stone “reflecting” bench.  We do have some additional work to do in the surrounding areas.  I’d like to do something with the facing side of the cinder block but I was just too excited not to post it.  Need to either do some grass seed to the left as well.

But for now, it’s quite tranquil.
