Time spent outside is time well spent. When I have finally cleaned up everything that got tossed about during the winter, replant, or plant new stuff in all the containers, I get inspired to spend more time outside.
Now is the time before we get way too hot out on the deck during the summer time. So I come outside and read my book for a while and get a little sun.
Next to the chaise is my new favorite plant, which is a Kaffir Lime, the leaf of which is an essential ingredient in a lot of Thai dishes, including my fave soup, Tom Yum. That and a new lemongrass plant and I'm getting ready to learn how to cook Thai-style.
