This week naomi's farm supply and the urban farm store in portland are getting their chicks. I would so love to have a few of our own. For now though I have settled on these little perennials instead. So cute and very hardy to grow !
I have a love of french gardens. In older posts I've featured many from cote sud and cote ouest magazines. It's been a while since I've posted any images from either and thought you may like a glimse or two. Here we go.. Dining in the garden.
One of my girls has a birthday on Valentines day and that always makes it a special day for the rest of us. I was out and about Sunday with my oldest daughter looking for just the right gift for our Valentine girl. We were home in time for a bowl of easy to make french onion soup yum. see the recipe below.

Sunday began delightfully by visitng the youngest at college. In the middle of the week it was warm enough outside to be in the garden, so I trimmed back the herbs a little and made some wreaths with lavender & thyme. Wishing you a 'warmer' weekend and maybe a little time in your garden too. Thanks for stopping by gardenrooms!

Convolvulaceae or more commonly known as Morning Glory, is a flowering plant that unravels it's blooms in the 'morning'. Most are perennials but there are some annual plants. Both types of seeds are easily found at most garden centers or nurseries. This plant was used in China for medicinal purposes and later became popular in Japan for it's loveliness. I like to plant this as a vine along a house, fence or trellis. It's easily pulled out at the end of the growing season or cut back. In the language of flowers the morning glory represents 'love in vain'. Thanks for stopping by gardenrooms, and thanks Jane for your fun feature Flowers in the house!
