The two small pots have thyme and begonias.
I love how they look, pretty and lush. I snip the herbs and take them to the kitchen, and I coo at my pretty pots when I water them every morning.
The backyard gardening has more mixed results. I've planted tomato plants again this year, hoping that a year's break means the soil is healthy again. However, one tomato plant already wilted dramatically overnight despite careful watering and care and a little googling makes me worried that our soil still has bacteria or fungus or maybe it's just that omnipresent, ominous black walnut tree in our yard. I planted two cucumber plants for the first time ever and there are little baby cucumbers under the prickly leaves! But the raspberries are puny. But the backyard herbs are pert and the mint from friends is taking off.
