In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.
Aristotle

So after the Great Rocking Chair Saga of 2009, they are finally here. I love them so much. They are cute on the porch and delightful to sit in to read in the evenings. Nick even joined me last night for some rockin' with his Sports Illustrated while the hamburgers were grilling.

The rocking chairs with cute seat cushions from Marshall's

I also recently added to my herb collection. To go with the Rosemary, Lavendar and Basil I added Garlic Chives and replaced the Cilantro that was fried on the west facing front porch. R.I.P. little Cilantro. They are now all residing in the back yard with more shade. They are much happier.

Don't they just make you want to cook something?!

View of the back porch - I love my new white Petunias. They were buy two, get one free at Lowe's!

Another addition to the garden is a lovely Cali Lilly from Angie. It's so pretty and now enjoying itself in a clay pot next to the hostas.


And, one last "I'm-not-from-Missouri-so-I-don't-know-what-plant-this-is-in-my-yard" question... all suggestions welcome!

What is it?

That is either Lavender or Sage! It's very pretty and bees love it! :)

I believe it is Salvia (Sage). Google salvia and I bet you'll find a match. I have some of that and it's awesome.
Your callas are lookin good! I love your porch and am glad you're enjoying it!

Love the rocking chairs! I wanted to grow an herb garden this year but we've just been too busy! It's first on my list for next spring/summer to do! The plant in Salvia - they get pretty big - and it's true - bees love them. They grow really well here in Utah. I had four in my backyard but had to remove them since we had too many bees flying all around the kids and poor Greg was attacked! But I still have the one out front and it is such a pretty shade of purple! Enjoy your new chairs!
