Herbal Designing on the Fly!

Well, we are going to have a string of beautiful days here and we are going to get some if not all of the plants I purchased planted.  So you may not see or hear from me for a tiny bit of time.  I'll try to post updates as we get sections planted.  I may be doing some herbal designing on the fly!  I wanted to make some small vignettes amongst the lavenders that are surviving.  I've got two lemon verbenas to plant that have been inside.  Those two red-veined sorrels that you see in the photo have been moved out.  They were taking up real estate and they needed to go.  The garlic chives were taken out over the past week.  So I have a bit of territory to design.  Not much, but it's something.  Where I usually plant the scented geraniums has been overtaken by lemon balm!  No surprise there.  So we will just work one section at a time.  I'll try to remember to take before and after photos!  I'll also be squishing four-lined plant bugs as we go.  My theory is if we leave some lemon balms at the perimeter of the garden.  They will stay there rather than come in and damage the nicest herb plants!  A little wishful thinking, herbally speaking!  Hope you had a great day.  Going to go make a list and do some combinations of plants and a plan.  Talk to you later.

Have fun! I overdid it a bit in the garden yesterday, but you know how it is, one thing leads to another.
