Milkshakes & Cupcakes

I've been baking cupcakes. (I have my reasons.) But I did not eat any. Husband came home from volleyball practice (volleyball never ever ends, and that's OK) with the surprise of milkshakes. Life is good.

Yellow blossoms on the wild strawberries. Iris forming, soon to open. Roses on the trellis. Clematis on the vine. Blue bugleweed picking itself back up after a pummeling by rain.

You know what can grow in sandy soil where there used to be a swingset? Spearmint!

Kathleen, love, love, love your suggestion of Spearmint in sandy soil

Have a nice weekend

I'm glad you're glad, Nene. Another wild mint is catmint, with lovely tall purplish flowers. Be careful with this kind of thing, which can be invasive, but I am glad our mint can grow in the sandy spot under the former treehouse in the "woodland" corner of the yard.

And spice our tea or mint juleps.
