A Walk in my Yard
Sometimes you just have to step outside and right before your eyes is a wonderful retreat of just plain prettiness. I wanted to catch the Forget-Me-Nots before they were gone and forgotten and I managed to snap a picture of a poppy seconds before it bloomed!
For the past few years I've planted a jardin potager(A potager is a French term for an ornamental vegetable or kitchen garden) right outside of my backdoor which opens right from my kitchen and I have fresh herbs right at my fingertips in nano seconds. The aroma of the herbs wafting through the window is an awesome side effect too!
We have what I like to call tomato alley which is a series of ceramic pots filled with different tomatoes and all I have left to do is plant some lettuce and spinach and my salad garden is done!
