2 weeks of photo updates



Here's the new, small computer shadowed by the old glitchy computer:



We're still working out how to use it for reals.

Soooooooooo, last week at the market I was tempted by a gorgeous orange-tipped rose:



As well, the team finally put together the double Adirondack chair:



This week's task is to put stones under the legs to prevent rot.

And this is last week's harvest:



At the market this week, there was a good price on 3 pots of plants:



The 2 beautiful Phloxes:





are going to replace some of the uninspired pale pink Phloxes I have in abundance:



which I am going to transplant to the edge of the trees in the back.

This Summer the red Bee-Balm failed almost completely although the lavender ones next-by are fine:



so the Red Bee-Balm:



is going in that hole in the garden.

This week's tea is going to be Anise-Hyssop:



which has a distinct liquorice taste....
do youse think that Anise and a neutral taste (like Wild Basil which tastes like black tea) or Anise and a lemon taste (Lemon Balm or Lemon Verbena or Lemon Savoury) would be better?

By next week I hope that Matthew will have figured out how the posting-photos-onto-lj works-- I have posted this from his lap-top and he uses a non-querty keyboard, which brings new meaning to hunt-and-peck typing..... but to close, gratuitous frog!!:

For what it's worth, I'm a huge advocate of anything and Lemon Balm tea.

Your new 'puter looks very spiffy, as do your gardens.
i may have accidently weeded my phlox....
The anise and lemon balm sounds like a nice combo. I had no idea what wild basil looks like, I think it's been growing in my garden like a weed and I keep pulling it up!

The red bee-balm in particular is lovely.
