As requested, a garden update. On the top row, that's a scented geranium and crookneck squash.
In the second row, that's lime thyme blooming in a pot with applemint. The photo next to it is of a tiny cherry tomato.
This last photo, the tiny white blossoms that grow in enormous, round clusters, is a closeup of my neighbor's bush, which is probably ten feet tall. I have not the foggiest idea what this bush is called, nor can I lay any claim for it looking so beautiful, but I'm ever so hopeful someone will email me and tell me what it is, because I want like twenty of them.
