Then last week over lunch I was talking about my little garden with the professor I share my office with. She mentioned some of the herb elixirs she makes with her garden. Not that I went and studied all the healing properties of herbs just yet, but somehow when we were at the hardware store last week more herbs jumped into our cart. I caught myself reading about a moon cycle this week too...so my inner hippie must be escaping again.
We have had a big, empty barrel on the side of the house since it had a tree in it years ago....now it's home to Peppermint, Thyme, Apple Mint, Flat Leaf Parsley and Lemon Thyme.
And here is the wheelbarrow garden today...
Now I need to go light some incense and listen to Peter, Paul and Mary.
Except I'm not really kidding...I would love to do that.
