Gardens and Flowers and Herbs, Oh My!

Today was the first day of June! That means that the first day of summer is only 20 days away! Yay! I love the summertime. There is so much to do; camping, roasting marshmallows, playing outside, swimming, the beach...and tons more! Oh, and don't let me forget the gardens! Which reminds me, I did a bit of gardening today myself! I looked at the flowers and herbs.

                                 This is me with the irises. Irises are my favorite flower.

Here I am checking out the snapdragons. They don't have much of a smell...

...but they are colorful and cute!

This is me with the violas and some cute little white flower I don't know the name of.

They make the perfect pot of flowers!

I also picked some herbs for dinner.
There's oregano, parsley, and purple basil.

Picking herbs makes your hands smell really good. Plus, you get to eat them afterwards! Erm, the herbs, not your hands. Don't eat your hands.

Gardens are pretty fun. You can plant pretty flowers and food to eat! Do you have a garden? What are your favorite things to do in the summer? Happy June 1st! 
This has been Dani, dabbling in the art of gardening. Over and out! :)


  1. Wow, you have a very pretty garden! I love all the plants you have growing there. :) We don't grow any herbs in our garden, but we have plenty of flowers. My favorites are the bleeding hearts (which have a gruesome name but are actually very pretty) and the forsythia, which I used to call the La-La bush when I was little and into the Telly-Tubbies! I love gardening, and am currently wishing I could be out doing so, but there's a downpour outside my window so I'm stuck inside. *sigh* Maybe next weekend, though!

    I love reading your blog! You take really good pictures, too!

  2. We have a forsythia on our front lawn! I love the little yellow flowers. Thank you! I try to take the best pictures I can with the camera I have (not a very good one... :p). It's good to know that my blog is being enjoyed! Thank you!
