Well, it certainly isn't the rain! Hooray! Notice anything "dead" center? There is a long-dead Birch that was supposed to be cut down in the spring, but a house wren moved into the bird-house gourd that I forgot was there.
I am happy with the colors of the chairs and tables. The lovage, cukes, parsley, and lemongrass (which needs a larger pot!) are doing well, while the rosemary and chervil are so-so.
Today is supposed to be blueberry picking day, so I hope the weather clears up. If not, at least I won't have to wash them!
