It was absolutely gorgeous today. Sunny with a little breeze. It's been so cold and rainy lately that when The Hub and I decided to take a walk, we thought we would have to bundle up. It turned out to be perfect walking weather. This is the City Hall.
We just put in a couple of little boxes with herbs. We have savory in one box (basil and thyme) and sweet in another (stevia and lemon balm). I tasted a bit of the stevia when we got it. It was sweet as can be, but seemed to cause my throat to sort of swell up and get sore. Am I allergic? I decided to do a little experiment. Last time The Dot was home, I snipped off a piece and said, "Here, taste this." and popped it in her mouth. She didn't have time to think. Luckily. Because she's generally fairly careful. I told her what it was and a few minutes later when her throat seemed to constrict I said, "I know. I thought so. Mine did that too."
It's supposed to be a good substitute for sugar in recipes. I think I'll pass. But it's pretty.
This gorgeous tree is my persimmon! It has grown so much since we put it in less than a year ago. It's close to seven feet tall now! Not sure if we're going to get persimmons this year. But it's a beautiful tree.
Here's one last shot of the lamb's ear in the Arbor Walk. It is beautiful and fragrant. The Hub and I love to spend time out there reading. Life's good.
