Beard of the Day and Gardening Update (Hee hee..that's a weird combination!)



Happy Friday! Time for Beard of the Day. Here's Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who has an extremely masculine scruffy beard, with the just the right amount of salt and pepper. He also has those super intense puppy dog eyes that are hard to resist.

Now, you're probably wondering how I'm going to segue into the gardening section. Well, here I go.....

Just imagine you're diligently working on your herb garden, when Jeffrey Dean Morgan suddenly appears, wearing faded blue jeans, a tight T-shirt and a gardening tool belt. He gazes at you with those gorgeous hazel eyes and says, "Excuse me, ma'am, do you need some help in the garden? I have this nice, long, hard....trowel." He whips a trowel out of his tool belt and starts digging the compost.

Oh yeah!

What? Well, maybe that's stretching it a little bit, but anyway....

My kitchen herb garden is starting to bloom...I have oregano, chives, sage, lemon balm, thyme and lots of edible Johnny Jump-Ups in every color. I highly recommend growing some of these sweet annuals....you can throw them on a salad, in a pitcher of lemonade, or on a fruit platter. This weekend I'm heading to my favorite nursery to get basil, tomatoes, etc. My daughter Natty (who is 7) planted the peas, lettuce, radishes and beets in our veggie garden last weekend. Now, I just have to figure out how to keep the bunnies out of the garden!

Nice beard! Yeah! Okay, the trowel and the compost? LOL. I'm not going to tell you where my mind went with that, but it is much too early for such things. Need more tea.

I love your garden. What a fabulous chef's garden, and I bet there is not a bit of turf mold in it.

Hi Carolyn! Actually, I am embarrassed to tell people I have a masters degree in turfgrass science because my lawn sucks! It's like a dandelion garden! But I really love growing veggies, herbs and perennials. I'm sure Jeffrey Dean Morgan wouldn't mind being my gardening assistant! ;)

Usually I'm not a beard type of gal, but *wolf whistle* Jeffrey Dean Morgan just might convert me.

PS The gray whiskers are muy sexy.

hi Juju....he's my kind of scruffy guy! :)

Hey Smokin--love that salt and peppah thing...older guys are my weakness (and beards, and big, bulging biceps, and......)

My favorite kind of beard! Hubby has one! I'm working on my garden but the snails ate all my chilies when I was out of town!

Penelope said...

Ohhhhh, Julia. I am very jealous. You are one lucky woman if your hubby has a beard like this! Way to go!

sorry to hear about your chilies!

JDM is hot, very hot. With and without his beard ;)
I like the idea of herbs and veggies in the garden, we have lots of them too - and al kinds of fruit.

JMD is one hot man. He's on my "list" of "freebies" - right after Gerard Butler. Thx for the pic!
