Flowers and herbs this spring and summer

This is what I just purchased -- so I will remember, and also where I plan to put them:

The herb garden - possibly on the side of the shed to give it some relief from the sun (plants that require full sun don't want the kind of full sun that Fort Worth can offer them, I have learned)
Achillea millefolium cv. (White Yarrow)
Angelica archangelica (Angelica)
Artemisia absinthium cv. (Wormwood)
Pogostemon heyneanus (Patchouli)

Mentha cv. (Moroccan Mint) - in a pot
Pelargonium cv. (Attar of Rose Geranium) - in a pot

Polygonum odoratum (Vietnamese Cilantro) - kitchen garden, replacing a dead pepper.

Rosa cv. (Cinderella Miniature Rose)
Rosa rugosa rubra (Tomato Rose)

The roses will go in a row with my other two roses, which have survived ice storms and paint being dumped all over them, since it is obviously a good area, also very airy.

Thymus pulegioides cv. (Pennsylvania Dutch Tea Thyme) - kitchen garden, replacing a dead pepper.

Additionally I would like to separate my "food" garden from non-food herbs. The rue is doing poorly in the kitchen garden, so I'm going to move it elsewhere. One spot will go to the parsley, which is currently in a pot.

Burke Cemetery

This cemetery was near Waterside. We wandered there after dinner. The first, and oldest, grave, mentioned in the historical marker.

Studying with Dolls

In the afternoons, I usually take my laptop or a book to the bed and study, and a doll for company. Gertrude is sitting on my bed desk. I got her in 2015 from the Korean doll company Dollmore. She's a "Flocke" sculpt. Willow is sitting with my headphones. She's made by the Chinese company Angel of Dream. I got her in 2013. She's a "Qing" sculpt.
Two older entries I edited tonight re-posted today's date. However, the original month/year is still visible in the permalink. Looking back on the past often makes me cringe, especially when I remember my own behavior. However, re-reading these entries makes me feel the past is accessible in the sense that I am still holding on to many of the same dreams and desires. This week, for comps, I read two early gothics, James Hogg's The Private Memoir and Confessions of a Justified Sinner , and Charles Brockden Brown's Edgar Huntly; or, a Sleep-Walker , which were very much along the lines of the books that absorbed me from 2005-2007, most of which I read on my Treo from Project Gutenberg. Looking back upon my interests and desires of that time sustains me now, when I have to tap into my reserves every day to keep reading.
