For the second time this year my lavender is blooming. Lavender is a woody sub-shrub which has antibacterial and anti-anxiety benefits and can also aid in sleep disturbances. Lavender is also edible.
Here's the lavender plant hidden behind the chocolate basil. I must remember to take time to smell the lavender.
I also planted a couple of garden sage plants.
Today I thought about selling herbs at the farmer's market before a frost knocks them down. I wouldn't make much but I'd be able to talk to folks about the benefits of using fresh herbs: health, flavor, and fragrance. I love sharing my love of plants with others. In today's world small pleasures are so very important. The kiln is firing a bisque load as we speak. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
