A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Cottage Garden Party

Etsy Cottage is having a garden party and so it's time to show some of what's growing in your gardens.
I don't have much yet, but it's spring in the desert and the plants are coming alive once again with their beauty.
This is a climbing rose and if I remember correctly, her name is Jacob's Ladder. Smells very sweet and I love the orange, yellow and pink blossoms.
After a few days the color changes to this pretty pink. Yes, these are the same roses as the first picture. Amazing huh?

I also have some fresh strawberries beginning. I think I had better go get these and eat them before some critter thinks they are there for them.....:)

Would you like a tangelo? They are very good!!

This is a miniature pomegranate bush. If you look closely, you can see the fruit beginning to form.

Check out the top of the flower, and you will see the beginning of the baby pomegranate.

Do you enjoy the sweet smell of citrus? These blossoms are from a Meyer Lemon Tree. My yard smells like heaven right now.
AZ has many citrus groves and just driving down the streets this time of year, you can smell all the sweetness that nature has to offer.

Do you like tomatoes? I have decided to grow several varieties this year, but this plant is the only one with babies right now.
I hope you have enjoyed a little peek into my yard. I hope you enjoy all the bounty that the Lord and nature have in store for you this spring, whether it's flowers or something wonderful to eat.
Please just click on the badge for the Cottage Garden Party to take you to visit all that are participating in this wonderful venture into spring and gardens.

I enjoyed your pictures and only made me wish that Spring would hurry up. We are still have cold weather and they are predicting more snow. I would love to eat some of your fresh strawberries. They look so yummy. Enjoy the beautiful weather. Your Missouri Friend.

I can't wait to plant, even if only in pots, but I too have way too much snow and more on the way! I did enjoy your pictures and their promise of spring!!! Oh wait, it is already spring...maybe I should hope for summer!!!

It must be wonderful to lie in a place where you can pick lemons right off the trees! Thanks for sharing your beautiful garden. Love, Linda
