  • Lovage in bloom.  Lovage is an overlooked herb.  It is an easy to grow perennial that can be substituted for celery which is an annual and more finicky to grow.

  • My Echinacea is blooming!  I grew it from and love that it continues to seed itself around my garden.  The Goldfinches love the seed also.
