Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

So you think you're a gardener?!

So once again I am going to try to grow something. Instead of flowers, I'll try some herbs. Wish me luck. The only green thumb I have is the aqua green color of my gardening gloves. The last time I tried the plants didn't last very long.
Ellie's not sure about this dirt and herb stuff.

And I even got some garden gnomes to guard the herbs.  Maybe they'll remind me when it's time to water?

Well, it's not easy to grow things in that desert - green thumb or not! At least you keep trying. I have much better luck here in East Texas. Things grow 'like topsy' here -- as the saying goes -- never have been sure what or who topsy is ;).

Oh no you don't, you Gardening Temptress! It will be a full month before I dare plant anything, so don't even TRY to get me to pull out the pots and planters. Lalala! I'm not listening!

Good luck to you! I hope they do well. I've never had much of a green thumb either.

Look At YOU! Gardner!!! I love it! Now let me see....we can trade our homegrown stuff...my tomatoes for herbs. I have onions and peppers, too! Great pictures and the Gnomes are too cute! Looks like EllieMae was lots of help!

Ellie is so cute. I know how you feel regarding the green thumb. It has to be greener than mine. I have a grandmother who could make dead grass in the winter grow lush and green. I got none of that in my genes. :)

Cite garden gnomes! Maybe you could teach them to do the watering!
Seriously, good luck with the herbs. I've grown basil and oregano and rosemary, but then I've killed a few crops, too...

I love using fresh herbs. The only one I have right now is basil, but I eat it every day ---sometimes right off the plant.

What a pretty garden, Susan! You surely have the design element down. I'll bet your herbs surprise you and do really well :)
