Spathiphyllum

While sitting in my rocking chair, I had a thought. I decided to challenge myself to use each one of my herbs to make really easy and delicious dishes.

Rosemary

My Rosemary is out back in a different garden. Rosemary, is a much hardier herb and grows to be quite large. Planting the Rosemary in the ground only made sense.

Starting soon, I’ll be profiling each of these herbs and incorporate them into a main or side dish. Fresh herbs bring so much flavor and to any recipe. They give the dish a gourmet touch. Well, I better get started on my first dish! Happy Cooking!

Seasonal Flowers, Herbs, And Plants

Whenever I set up any type of garden display, I make sure they’re always presented in odd numbers. As you can see I have three barrels set pretty close together using the same color pallet. Here they range from pink to red. I also you the same method whenever I set a table. I use odd amounts of candles, fruit displays, flowers, or herbs on the table.  Set along the side of the carport, I have my hanging herb garden.

Once the rocking chairs, side table, and outdoor carpet arrive, I hope to transport this carport into a beautiful sitting area.

On the side of my house, set behind the rain lilies, I planted three sunflowers. In the backyard, my Fig Tree, Eggplant Plant, and Chives are doing just great!  It’s an amazing feeling to see your garden plants, trees, and herbs thrive!🍓🍓🍓

I’m lucky to live in region zone 9, where it’s perfect for producing pineapples. You just wouldn’t believe how sweet there are. I’ve talked about my herbs and flowers and how maintaining them does take some work. Pineapples, however, not so much. They are just so beautiful, I feel sometimes that it’s almost a shame to have to cut them off.  That’s not going to stop me! I have plans for these beauties.
