The Herb Garden

We have had a lot of rain at the beginning of the month, with just a few days of sun... the weekend was sunny and the next few days are supposed to be sunny and warm. The herb garden is happy...


Lemon balm in the back, parsley, basil and a pepper plant in front

Lavender (smells heavenly), oregano to the left, purple sage in front, yellow and green sage in back
Sage, oregano, thyme, lemon balm

June is my favorite month.... everything is green and new and fragrant... I love going for walks and breathing in the heavy scent of honeysuckle and wild roses along the roadside that only come around once a year.... I think God must take such delight in His creation, and that He delights in me when I delight in His wondrous creation.... I can almost see Him smiling down...

Trust in the LORD and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:3-4

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.”- Psalm 19:1-2
