We went to Home Depot and got all of the supplies. Plants, pots, saucers, dirt... sorry, soil. I read somewhere that bugs hate marigolds, otherwise known as calendula, so some of those went into each pot for color and buggie-less-ness. Rosemary, common sage, German thyme, flat leaf parsley, Greek oregano, marjoram, French lavender (had no idea that the plant itself would smell so lovely), cilantro and lemon balm (otherwise known as Melissa, for you know who). Not sure why the thyme is German, don't think I've ever used German thyme before, but what the heck, the plant is gorgeous and smells fab. I got them all planted and well watered on Sunday afternoon, just in time for a bad rain storm with high winds... and then two days of snow. All of East Tennessee is blanketed in white because I tried to garden, I take full responsibility. I was worried that they might freeze, but The Man dragged them into the garage for me on Monday to make sure they were protected, because he's wonderful that way. Brother Sun decided to reappear today, with blue skies and fluffy clouds, so the pots got dragged back out to soak up some of the rays. If I can keep they from freezing, or drying up, or getting eaten by critters, I have a shot at becoming a proper Southern lady. Next up.... there is a little patch of nothing but weeds in the front of the house. I'm going to hoe it all up and plant flower seeds. Alyssum is a great ground cover, with pretty white flowers. We're also planting 4 o'clocks, a night blooming flower, sunflowers, morning glories and moon flowers (also night blooming). The last two will be growing on a trellis which I'm making from an old pallet. Yup, I'm nesting, and it's fun.
