I finally was able to take some pictures of the garden repairs.
Here's the strawberry bed, that someday will be replete with berries (I hope!)
Basil that survived the freeze warning the other night
Rosemary, doomed to only one summer with us in this cursed zone 6.
The cutest little sage plant that I could find, that is looking markedly perkier now that he's in the ground instead of in that terrible, horrible, root-bound peat pot.
Parsley, which grows into a large bush here.
and... dock. The cursed dock weed that invades every part of my yard and garden and threatens to take over. Hickory-dickory dock. I hate dock. I took this next to the lilac bushes that we inherited from previous tenants. Sadly, the lilac bushes never bloom, but the dock certainly flourishes.
But that's the state of affairs right now. And I hope they stay beautiful.
