So, yesterday I picked up some potted organic herbs and created an edible centerpiece. The smell alone re-wired my February brain. Mint, basil, and cilantro are the fragrances of summer time in my plot out back. I was transported. And how fun is it to pick your garnish and put it directly on your plate? My kids will tell you "it's awesome!" I placed the pots in a rusted out mail tray (that I love so much) and surrounded them with our lake stones to complete that summer memory feeling.
Oh and guess what bloomed this week? So now sweet scents follow me from room to room. Live aromatherapy.
- If you can't find potted herbs, make a bouquet of basil, dill, mint etc. (from the produce section) and put them in a vase.
- Other greens to grow: sprouts and grass!

- I haven't forgotten about tiny love and little parcels... not for a moment!
