Seasons changing in my garden

Spring is over and summer is underway. The spring flowers that I planted in my garden have faded and dried. This morning Ibrahim and I went out in the garden to collect the seeds so that we can plant them next year. It's kind of sad to see the dried-up plants that were once glorious. But there is beauty in the prickly seeds and flower heads. 

We've been putting out birdseed in the garden to attract birds. In one place a millet plant sprouted and we liked the look so much that my husband decided to plant a border with them. It will look interesting and attract lots of birds too. The basil seeds my mother-in-law gave me are coming out, about 8 inches tall now, and I've got some sage, mint, rosemary and marjoram in the garden too.

There's a basket on the window ledge next to my desk that I fill with plants in small pots. I can change the plants so there's some variety.  Ibrahim calls the area next to my desk Mom's forest. :)

  1. That is great decision that you get the seed for the next spring season! The basket full of plants in your desk are beautiful. Great post.
