That's a nice looking dinner TAT. And here I figured it would have ended up stuffed for a trophy since it was his "first". Instead, sounds like you guys are the ones who got "stuffed".

A photo I took of my herb garden last weekend and the monster cucumbers in the background. It's raining pretty hard right now, so I'll need to check for new ones tomorrow. They sure suck up the water.

The smile on his face really says it all....and what a nice looking man. I love his hat.

What a beautiful garden! That's a picture worthy of House and Garden magazine.

Thanks, Taxy and Kayelle You may remember my bay tree died after our unusually cold winter. Well, it's coming back from the roots now. We're going to keep it small this time.

I have 2 bay trees. A smallish one in a container and a huge one that is now a very tall tree! It just went skyhigh without any fertiliser or attendance! (Admittedly, I had been away for 2 years - being a resident, full time carer for my mother).

Tatt, love the pic of your step dad out on the ocean. Looks like it was a perfect day!

GG - what a beautiful herb garden. I love the rock border.

Thanks, Cheryl DH is a geologist by training and he collected many of these rocks while growing up in Michigan. We loaded up the car with them years ago when his parents retired and sold his childhood home and brought them here to Virginia.

I was also going to mention that nice rock garden GG. When I was a little girl we had a neighbor/customer who was a geologist. He was a wonderful old man and he gave me a rock that was actually collected by him from our nearby 6,000 foot mountain. He explained it was actually a piece of fossilized sea shell and as a little girl, I was in awe that the mountain top (Topa Topa) had once been the floor of the Pacific ocean. I still treasure it in our rock garden with rocks we have brought home in our suitcases from all over the world..

Here are some pretty images of Topa Topa mountian..
