|Lemon Thyme, Dwarf Marigolds, Basil|
First let me say that I am from Texas, July is supposed to be hot. The warmest it’s been here since the summer started is the upper 80’s. I miss my summer, the one where you start to bead up in sweat when sitting outside in the shade.
My Texas friends and family are all suffering in the rainless heat of their summer…the grass always looks greener/more parched on the other side of the Atlantic.
I will say that despite the chill and damp of the weather, there’s been just enough sun to keep the garden happy and interesting. I suppose I should just put on another sweater and be happy with what I have.
|My coriander (cilantro) went quickly to seed.|
|Don’t know what the flower
Another mystery plant, I like the way
the leaves look like a swirling
|Has an orange sap that an Italian friend explained could
cure warts and it’s true. Apparently it’s also used as a dye.
|I’m not surprised! I quickly found that this orange sap WILL stain clothes a DARK olive
green. You can also use it as ink and it gets
darker in the sun rather than fading!
