A number of cold nights in January finally hit the African Blue Basil–even though it was covered. So, the bees moved over to the rosemary shrub, which has been blooming magnificently for a few months now.
Recent warmer temperatures have encouraged the blueberry bushes to bloom, providing another tasty treat for the bees.
The marjoram relished the cold, and its stately upright stalks are a pleasure to examine closely.
The bunching onions came back abundantly, and the Italian parsley is off to the races!
What a delight to wander amongst the loveliness of the front yard!
When I first moved to Pasadena, I purchased a membership to The Huntington, where I whiled away many pleasant afternoons. Now, I just have to walk outside the front door to experience the deep joy of a beautiful (edible!) garden.
Where do you find garden joy during the winter?
