Just Wanted to Say Hi!

Just wanted to say hi and thank Judy for asking to me to participate in The Herbal Bouquet.  This is our front garden in western Pennsylvania.  I know it's a little crazy!  I'm a Penn State master gardener and I volunteer answering the public's gardening questions for our Gardenline.  I also guest blog for The Herb Companion magazine.   The Herbal Husband and I have a large garden and no kids or pets.  My passion is all things herbal, but I do answer a wide variety of questions for the extension.  So you will see and hear from me when I can and when I can come up with an answer for questions that's what I love to do.  Talk to you soon.

I read today on Lemon Verbena Lady's blog about the butterflies that are visiting her gardens. Back in early Summer I purchased a hanging pot of purple petunias and hung them on the North side of our home. They were suppose to have full sun, but like Les says, I never read the directions. They are doing just great. I dead head them a couple times a week and water them every other day if we don't get rain. But, lately (last week or so) they are covered in butterflies. Now, I don't know my butterflies, but that doesn't matter I just enjoy watching them from the screened porch and so do the cats. Enjoy your day ladies.
