The rain let up for a few days and yesterday I was able to get in the garden. I did a bit of weeding and sowed some corn, as well as setting out some basil and a rosemary plant -- purported to be hardy in our climate. We'll see.
Above -- a bed crowded with garlic chives, thyme, and rue (the yellow flowered stuff.)
What does one do with rue, anyway? It's very bitter.
I planted it because I like its other name:Herb of Grace.
The first of the Japanese iris are blooming . . .
And late in the afternoon, it rained -- perfect for that corn that just got in the ground!
