Things.....and stuff

What I wanted to do today was plant my herbs. I took the girls on a quick trip to the flower shop where I hoped to purchase basil, thyme, mint, and whatever else I saw that looked interesting. Unfortunately, the one herb I really wanted (basil) was gone.

I ended up with lemon balm, rosemary, chocolate mint and Italian oregano. All very fragrant and beautiful. Then we headed over to Fleet Farm for some potting soil and a couple cute little tomato tins. I didn't realize they were oblong tins. I thought there were two small round tins to a package. But oh well. I really want some small rustic looking tins. Anyone know where I can find any?

Glass bottles. I love them. New or used. I save most bottles anymore. Wine bottles, vinegar bottles and fancy juice bottles: I take the labels off and save them to reuse for homemade sparklers or to use as flower vases.

I love to have fresh cut colorful flowers from our garden on the table. So simple yet so beautiful. I really love this time of year.

Chocolate mint. I still can't get over this. We are chocolate mint gum lovers. Because it's like eating desert without the calories. This stuff smells just like the gum that tastes just like desert. Love it.
