“God gave all men all earth to love but since our hearts are small,

Ordained for each one spot should prove beloved over all.”

~Rudyard Kipling

This past weekend it was so gorgeous I decided to plant my herb garden…

and yesterday I had to bring it back into the house.

I’m glad I did because there’s a

light dusting of snow out there this morning.

lavender

for lemonade, shortbread and sachets…

parsley

for salads, tabbouleh, and pretty garnishes…

thyme…

for soups, lemonade and oven roasted potatoes

oregano…

for pizza sauce, pasta dishes and chicken

rosemary

for

focaccia, lemonade and to scent grilling meat

mint

for iced tea, lemonade, greek dishes and chocolate desserts

and

basil

making Bonnie’s tearoom cake…

chives

tomatoes
