Spring is blooming & So am I:

Tomorrow is the big day!  The arrival of our little girl, most likely between 8-9:30 CST.  Exciting times for our family!  My parents arrived yesterday, and dear husband's will meet us in Milwaukee for the big day.  We spent the weekend doing some last minute things - who knows if we are actually prepared?  This is the last picture I will take as a pregnant 42 year old!  
 This morning I took a final walk around my herb garden to see what signs of life were awakening!  We have been lucky this Spring, with no late snowstorms, nor torrential rain, and have even had quite a few days of above average temperatures.  I am hopeful to get tomatoes in the ground before June, which didn't happen last year.  The herb garden is looking promising:
 Chives are always the first to peek through - should have some lovely blossoms in a couple of weeks!
 French Tarragon - I didn't have such good luck with this last summer in my Mediterranean Herb pot, so am hopeful for a more successful year!
 I always have lots of Thyme - I think this is either orange or lemon thyme
And seeing this chocolate mint popping through gives me hope for my favorite mint of all - Kentucky Colonel.  Kentucky Colonel is the best mint I have found for drinks - mojitos, tea, lemonade, etc.  If mine doesn't come up, I will be ordering some for sure!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I can't wait to see what happens in the herb garden while I'm away!  And I will have lots to share with you when I return!

Wish me luck!
