Outside

Well, I went a bit overboard yesterday taking pictures, but I couldn't help myself because it was such a beautiful, warm, sunny day and Otis and Riley and I spent it in the garden.


First I planted some azalea plants that were in pots and needed to be put in the ground.


Otis and Riley were there to help.


The old tomato plant is still producing tomatoes!

The strawberry patch will have to be covered soon.


The rosemary looks wonderful,


as does the anise plant my neighbor gave me.


Then some time to relax and soak up the sun (get that vitamin D),


and read a book.


Even the birds are happy.


Riley's lovin' it!

Your dogs are too cute!

I can't even imagine having that much sun right now. Let alone thriving plants. How do you use the fresh anise? We slice the bulbs on Christmas Eve as part of our antipasto. I'd love to hear what you do with it.

Love,
Julie

I imagine your little helpers took up their usual position on the back of the sofa afterwards to rest..!
Your garden is lovely..!

Donnd,
Tom was telling me at dinner in Ocean City on Tuesday night that as a kid he recalls his mother using the lawn mower to cut back their strawberry patch in the fall.
Love you Galen B.
