A trip to Eric's!

Picked up some herbs and flowers this morning at my favorite nursery...Eric's.

Lemon Verbena, Lemon Thyme, Rosemary, Peppermint, and two beautiful red Geraniums. Now if the weather would just cooperate!

Took Truman for a walk along the shore....Bay flies were horrible, but once we hit the beach the breeze coming off the lake kept them away. I found a lot of sea glass, broken shards of blue and white china and small bits of driftwood.

Earth Day----

Whose garden was this?
It must have been lovely
Did it have flowers?
I've seen pictures of flowers
And I'd love to have smelled one.
Whose river was this?
You say it ran freely
Blue was its color
And I've seen blue in some pictures
And I'd love to have been there

Tell me again, I need to know
The forest had trees, the meadows were green
The oceans were blue
And the birds really flew
Can you swear that it's true?
