Garden Junkie

Mother Nature is truly amazing.
Everyday when I pick through my garden, I find something more intriguing than the day before.  The textures, shapes, and colors are specimens of pure beauty. Unparalleled. 
Each detail is so deliberately functional and yet aesthetically divine. I could spend 
hours investigating the intricacies of the garden, and usually I do.
I am pretty sure I'm addicted.
(Admitting you have a problem is the first step.)  


  1. Nothing wrong with that kind of addiction!
    Lovely pictures Em.
    Is that basil I see with the flower atop? You might want to pick out the flowers before they get too settled because it will cause the pant to go to seed and then you might lose it. I recently bought a cilantro and it's done that. Another term for that process is 'bolting'.

  2. oops, did I say pant? Pull your pants up Jo and proof read before sending!

  3. Yep, that's my basil. Poor little soul. Oddly enough, the picture makes that plant look more alive than it actually is. It fell over in a storm and toppled out of its container and twice now it has dried up almost completely. I just did some reading about bolting because I was having a little trouble with my broccoli wanting to flower.

    Thanks for the advice and thanks for checking the blog.

  4. Hi Emily--what a nice blog. Love your photos and short snippets of conversation.
