Mississippi is once again under cloudy skies with impending storms headed our way. The weather guessers have predicted several days of nearly constant rain and very probable severe weather. Since the likelihood of ideal outdoor time anytime soon I spent some time in my little herb garden this morning. Herbs are one of my favorite things about springtime…growing them, smelling them, eating them, and drying them for future use. I’ve intentionally placed several containers to catch the rain water for watering on the days when they need it. An area rug we no longer used in the house has proven to be an excellent barrier from weeds. 🙂
I love the delicate color of onion chive blooms.
B is for beautiful basil, buzzing bees, and the blessing of bountiful herbs.
An bottom of an unused garbage can cut in half makes a perfect container for multiple planting. I really should have planted some parsley with the rosemary, sage and thyme together. But I am not planning on going to Scarborough Fair.
This oregano is ready for pruning and separating. Alas, that must wait until after the rain. I think I’ll make a pot to share with a friend.
spicy Thai basil and spicy globe basil…looks like the beginning of something wonderful.
Until next time…
