it's so mild 
+  the herb garden is thriving
parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, mint, lavender, oregano, bay leaf + soon the basil

if anyone would like some, please drop me a line
i'd be happy to dry a bunch for you - no pesticides :)


please forgive me for not visiting or commenting often
still numb as our world crumbles 
as if we've walked through an invisible veil 
to a new place the contours of which are still unknown.
but i need to believe that sooner or later we'll draw up a map
and find a way out.

Your words and photos fill my heart!
Such a beautiful wreath.
I would love some of your herbs but only if I can send you something in return.
Email me at frommytreehouse@gmail.com and we'll exchange addresses.

How beautiful. I try and imagine the scent of it. It would be a precious present, the treasures of your garden.
You're a magician of ligth.
I hope you will be OK. I have, and will be thinking of you. Take care and enjoy springtime.

Wishing you all the best.

Ethereal, poetic and apt as always. I look forward to your posts ~ each one a treat to be savoured... I am learning about the Caribbean as we stay for these few years; a woman today told me that here they put rosemary in coconut oil and add nutmeg for massage oil it sounds so appealing.
Good thoughts and hopes for a good solution to the hard, hard times there...
Best to you...
