Early Spring around these parts

Steps need some tlc; we'll get to it this summer. We fixed our fireplace ourselves last year, so we'll mix up a batch of cement and get conversant with our trowels.


Out back, the chives are doing extremely well, as is most of the rest. Some lemon verbena is poking up under the window, in amongst the weedy lemon balm.
Bear or Frank? I can't tell.

You've defined the term "kitty corner"

Great that you're harvesting some peas too. I always plant sugar snap even though I love the snowpeas too. Betsy is really a fiend for the peas!

Beautiful house and the cat looks quite content. Fresh peas are a treat.

I have to go to Whole Foods to get chives.

I envy people with herb gardens. I know it's not that complicated...but we do have some climate issues here. The ones that prosper are not necessarily the ones I want the most...

Thanks for the compliments! Megan, no one wanted this house when we bought it.
