One of the first things I did when we bought the house was put in an herb garden. I adore roaming the yard with my kitchen shears and clipping what I need from living plants. Mediterreanean herbs love it here. The basils (Thai and sweet Italian) need the shelter of the front porch in order to survive the hot summers. It took a few years of moving them around to figure this out.
This little bundle went into a fresh batch of Purple Rain Soup. Rosemary, thyme and sage.
