Blonde moment

And the silver spoon.

Attempting a green thumb...

The first week Mom and I went to the Farmers Market this year, she bought flowers for her planter and I bought basil and lavender. Did you know that basil blooms? (Now if my lavender would bloom too, we'll be in business.) I didn't catch the most recent flowers in time, so I'll post a picture when the next set opens. And for the curious, basil flowers smell like highly concentrated basil leaves.

Fresh basil... one can rarely have enough...

    i've got blooming basil right now! It smells so good, doesn't it? i keep the pot right by my computer so i can smell it. Some people grow flowers, but i like useful things, so basil it is. It's so fun to walk over to my little planter and snip a few leaves and have a fresh touch to my lasagna, pasta, sandwiches, etc....

    My mom has this knack for African Violets that I wish I could replicate. I'm actually surprised my herbs have done this well as we're eastern exposure.
