Smells Good Around Here

Everyone is spending as much time as possible out in the yard these days.  Carol, Paula and Janice have put the finishing touches on the garden and I hear them say they can start all over again with weeding.  All the rain is good for weeds, but let's concentrate on the good things today.  Look at this Spirea!    And the herb garden isn't just for herbs, though Jan really likes to pop out there when the soup needs something to spice it up.  There are flowers as well as a bench where I can sometimes find a friend to sit and rub my ears.  The bench is under the cottonwood tree which, Carol says, was only as tall at the farm house when she and Aggie came here in 1988.  Look what 23 years have done for it!
