Our herb garden. Note the oregano in the upper right hand corner - it's taken over the garden. It did survive the winter - I'm not sure why it's thriving, but it is.
We have a ton of these - black eyed susans. The person who lived here before us was a true gardener - each year many "volunteers" grow in our backyard.
Here's a close up of one.
And this, dear readers - is where lightening struck our home a few weeks ago. There was a strong storm that woke me up (which is VERY rare). It felt like the storm was right on top of us. A few weeks later, my husband pointed this out - it wouldn't surprise me that lightening had struck us.
