We've been sprucing up the plant life around the house. Last Friday my dad and I planted some hanging potted flowers and some herbs for the back deck. Last year we tried a lot of varieties of basil, but we decided this year that traditional large-leaved was the best. So we ended up with basil, cilantro (which we use ALL the time!) and dill.

This little guy isn't new, but he's cute! The flower is about the size of an eraser on a pencil.

These flowers aren't new either, but we call them the Lazarus Plant. We got it last summer and it died in the heat of July with a few too many days of missed waterings. My dad then did a super-watering week and brought it inside for the winter and it came back to life!

Shelby your photos are just so beautiful! I love all your colorful flowers! Robert and I are going to plant a few things within the next few weeks but nothing this pretty :) (those flowers--Indian Paintbrush?--are some of my favorites!)
