“The foliage has been losing its freshness
through the month of August,
and here and there a yellow leaf
shows itself like the first gray hair
amidst the locks of a beauty
who has seen one season too many.”
– Oliver Wendell Holmes
The Summer 2011 flew by.!!
The garden this year did not fair so well, with the humidity and rain, the tomatoes rotted on the vine, yet, the herbs did fabulous. But then, they always do.!
Not to mention Hurricane Irene, flooding everywhere, fires in Texas. My thoughts and prayers for all those that were in the path of this destruction.
The ten year anniversary of 9/11 is coming up. Let us never forget those that have lost their lives and those survivors that are now ill from the after effects of working down at ‘Ground Zero’.
All orders $50.00 or more will be receiving this Terra Cotta Stone w/ 5 ml of our Time Out Diffuser Blend to honor ‘9/11′ .. until supplies run out. Please put in the “comments section’ at check out ‘FB 9/11’ so that we can include this with your order.
Nutmeg CO2 is just mouth watering and reminds me of eggnog at the Holidays.!
Well, I did put my shovel away .. and so of course we had snow showers today .. its ‘Murphy Law’.
The year 2011, started off running .. and here we are .. its Spring already.!
After a very ‘snowy’ winter, the Spring Season is such a joy. New beginnings, watching Mother Nature .. as all the plants, trees and flowers are waking up after their long winter sleep.
I’m excited to dig in the dirt .. and have already gotten my planters ready for the herbs and flowers that I will be planting this year.
Even if you do not have land to plant .. you can always do a container garden .. and actually, I have most of my herbs in my half barrel planters.
From Rosemary, Sage, Chocolate Peppermint, Peppermint, Spearmint, Lemon Thyme, Sweet Italian Basil, Holy Basil (or Tulsi as it is also known), Thai Basil, Cinnamon Basil .. geez .. yes indeed ..love all the Basil’s !!!
Letting the younger children walk thru and sniff and touch these wonderful fragrant herbs.!!
The look of wonder on their faces!!!
Have you thought about what you will be planting this season??
With what they are doing to our foods .. it is so important now more then ever, to ‘grow our own’ if possible.!!!
