Another Sunny Sunday

Inspired by the birthday gift I got for Julia, I went out and got the same for myself - some little pots to grow herbs in on the kitchen windowsill. 

No use trying to grow herbs outside for the slugs. So I painted the pots bright colors, then planted them with curley parsley, Italian basil, lavender, and nasturtium and put them on the windowsill.

Well, yes, they are a little circus-y, but they do brighten up the kitchen.  Though, come to think of it, the kitchen is already pretty bright.  Mostly because I'm always trying to create a Mediterranean ambience in the heart of the temperate rainforest of Mt. Hood.

That's the nasturtium.

Suddenly (it seems) it's the end of the sunny day...

Evening is here already.  My evening routine is to make the rounds with the watering can to water my little colorful garden.  Here is what the flowers look like tonight, just before dark.....

These are some of the magical creatures that inhabit my yard.  These creatures totally disappeared one Easter and then surprisingly reappeared in the fall.  The grandkids blamed it on the dog but I don't think the dog had anything to do with it.  I think it had more to do with the adventuresome world children live in.
