May days

Happy May. I am putting up this post amidst a very hectic time of long work days, time spent on my bicycle traversing some neat trails, decompressing on the beach & sporadic outings. Life is good & very busy!

I am trying not to fall away from posting but I will admit that it has been a while (okay, maybe four to five weeks ago?!) since I posted last – it is about a week into May afterall! Speaking of May, it’s funny how a lot of the locals here bemoan ‘spring’ & complain that it’s more like “April flowers & May showers”.  Despite of a random passing of the Santa Ana winds last week (amounting to ~90º) – it’s been overcast, a bit windy & even raining – if you know me; you know that I am loving it!

Thanks to an Earth Day community event that I chanced upon, I had the opportunity to sow an herb garden! This is something that I’ve always wanted to do but had always lacked the space & accessibility to sunlight.


In Seattle, I had always managed to kill plants.. But I am finding that constant care & attention (water+sunlight) are key to their survival (this is common sensical I know but really!). I love growing them; it’s so amazing to see them come from such tiny seeds & flourishing. I look forward to being able to harvest them. I’ve also sown radishes – it’s all very exciting to me! Something about the little seedlings sprouting.

I’ve also got rosemary & lavender coming along; though they aren’t are lively as these three at the moment! Any advice about patio planting? Please share as I am clearly a novice. What’s everyone else planting? (:
