Herb Garden

My herb garden, filled with herbs and flowers both perennial and annual, is bursting with color and fragrance. I love this time, just after midsummer's eve and just before high summer in the garden. Everything still looks fresh and thriving before the daily temperatures begin to soar. New colors pop each day. The lavender has been harvested in this garden but zinnias and phlox are preparing to bloom any time, now. Scented geraniums and rosemary, summer savory, fennel and lovage each display their own unique and splendid shades of green. There's also butterfly weed, yarrow and nasturtiums all vying for attention as well. The poppies are performing one last swan song before they say good-bye for the season. I think I'll just sit here for the rest of the day...
