The Adventures of a Calamari Queen

Our Garden!

It’s been a busy couple of days here because my sister and two of her friends visited us (sis joined the Rock and Roll Seattle marathon last Saturday) and we showed them around Seattle and we had a great time. I will post more of her visit this week. I wanted to show the new developments in my garden and goodness it’s thriving very well. I’ve been using a lot of my herbs in my cooking and I’m looking forward to eating a lot of salad this week too. My favorite harvest this morning was the strawberries, I plan to make the home made version of Starbuck’s strawberry creme drink. My hydrangea plant is growing like crazy too and I’ve been enjoying having fresh flowers all over the house. I love being in my yard this time of year:)
