Halfway Down The Century

It was Hubby’s birthday today – fifty years down (fifty more to go!)
There was a joint party/BBQ last night with another friend turning fifty, and time spent with other lovely friends, with the kids running round the playground after dark… a good way to celebrate. 😀

Today was the actual birthday… Hubby splurged on a new guitar and case (because he’s worth it 😉 )

I foresee an increase in music sessions in our near future…

In other news, he also dug and planted our front herb garden..

The basil in the back has been there a while… the rest is a little wilt-y, but water and a good settling in should fix that.

lavender, rosemary, marigold

The edge of the garden is a line of lavender and rosemary, and you can see one of the marigolds (for pest control – we have about six in the front) I think that’s one of the thymes at the back. There’s also sage, parsley and chives (also good pest control)

The planter out the back is still in need of plants, but that’ll be done this week – tomatoes of differing varieties, and some of the same herbs as the front..

Wonder what excitements the next fifty years will bring?
