In Full Bloom!

Do you remember this post from back in May, about my orchid getting ready to bloom? As you can see, she's putting on quite a show.

I have to give credit to my co-worker Dan H., who shot these pics in low light with his iPhone. My camera wouldn't cooperate without a tripod in low light. Thanks Dan!

Oregano Harvest

The Greek oregano I planted last year came back this spring - very energetically! I just cut it back - before it flowered.

I'll dry it for a while in this basket, then strip the leaves from the stems and dry it further. It's the year's first product from my teensy herb garden.
