It’s been a beautiful spring so far, but my perennials are off to a slow start. There are loads of buds, just not many blooms. The herb garden is looking great, despite being overrun by mint and fennel (which I initially thought was dill ((which does not make me happy)). But the mock oranges are fragrant, the miniature roses are perfect, and my little buddy is always at my heels. Gardening is good.
