In my garden

Oops, fell off the blogging bandwagon already... It's been a weird week. Haven't been feeling so well, T. was sick too and we're in full lockdown again on the island (only allowed on the street to for necessary errands twice a week). 

Also, I was (am) a bit stressed about work. I have a really big novel to proofread and some tax forms to fill in. But I'm getting there, slowly.

Anyway, I thought I'd pop in with some garden pictures.

I have this table on the porch with some random seedlings and cuttings. Most of them are doing pretty well and it makes me very happy. I took some workshops with our local herbalist and she gave us pieces of the plants she talked about. I put some of them in water and they are growing now. I really love to watch that happen.

This is berbena (not related to verbena). It has a lot of medicinal qualities and I'm so happy it decided to grow new leaves. It's in a small container now, but they are supposed to grow like weeds, so I'm going to find a bigger space for it.

A cucumber! At least I think it will be. So much fun to see them grow!

Tomatoes are blooming too, but I don't know if I will ever get tomatoes. It gets too hot for them here. We did have a voluntary plant somewhere that grew a few tomatoes in the colder months we just had, but the birds found them first...


  1. I could never be so prolific with gardens. I over/under water everything. LOL!

    1. Well, I often loose plants too. It's part of the whole gardening thing, I guess. It takes time to get to know the plants and their needs...

  2. I hope you feel better soon! lovely spring time photos.

    1. Thank you! It takes me longer than I expected, but I'm getting there.
