5-9-2009 Desert Rose and Spice Garden

Sell the kids for food. Weather changes moods. Get it? Cuz I sure don't!

Spice Garden
Basil, cilantro, dill, Italian parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, oregano. Eat that, Garfunkel!

Here's a pic of my little spice garden project.  That's an Australian origin bottle brush tree with African irises surrounding it in the cutout.  Click on the thumbnail above to see a blowup of the desert rose.  I had it under a tree and there were few flowers.  Once we moved it into broad daylight (not a bad idea since it's from sub-Saharan Africa), it made some serious floral inroads.
