Luckily for me, the garden has been basically in "maintenance mode." The end of June into July was full of rainy days so there was no need to water. There was zero threat of frost so we didn't have to baby any of the plants. All I've been doing is going out to snap a few photos and harvest what's ready.
This is an exciting and extra cool garden update because I discovered a nest that a robin made in the bush by the driveway. I park next to this bush every day and every morning on my way to work, the robin would fly out of the bush and scare the crap out of me because apparently, me getting in my car disturbed her beauty sleep. I know that I'm not necessarily growing these birds the way that I'm cultivating my garden but I figured that this nature-filled post was a perfect opportunity to share a few snaps.
These are the bulbs we got in Italy. A bunch of them bloomed and I love them because they're beautiful and because they're our Italian souvenirs. (As long as we take care of them) they're going to last forever, unlike the pesto and chocolate we also brought home.
The fig, which started off pretty pathetic and then almost died in the frost, has bounced back and is looking rather lush.
head over to my travel blog because I went bird-crazy over there.
