Today I Started Work on My Patio Garden

Last week's foot of snow has melted off, and it's still a couple of weeks too early to plant anything. However, I got some pots and planters today, and a couple of bags of soil/potting mix, and began.

I will plant as many herbs as I can - rosemary, lavender, basil, thyme...what else? Low growing herbs would be nice for the pots on the shelves. They are not real tall. Hens and chicks because I like them. Something bright that will bloom a long time. Something tall and bushy in a large pot over by the shelves to help block the view of the neighbors.

It's going to be an adventure, for sure. I have good sun and a water spigot, and it's a nice place to sit and enjoy being outside. And I have made a beginning!
