Hola! Let me just say Ahh. We’re coming off one of the most wonderful weekends here on the East Coast, I’m still finding myself a little in lala land. Our neighborhood is buzzing with children and dog walkers and everyone seems to be in good spirits with the return of the sun. Farmer Brown and I spent the weekend tooling around in the garden. This is almost as good for me as retail therapy, which we also managed to fit in. Nothing to show though, unless you guys would like to see what the hubby wears to work.
We’re still sorting out the garden, cutting some things back and planting a few new things too. I can’t wait to start Spring planting, I’m thinking lots of flowers this year. I spent Sunday cutting back the perennials and giving the herbs a little haircut. I was so surprised to see them looking quite vibrant considering all the snow. I love the feeling of being all tuckered out after a long day in the garden. Apparently Farmer Brown was missing it even more, he stayed out until well past six. I’m sure callused hands and a red neck are exactly what he needed, some one on one time with Miss Myrtle in the garden. I made these little herb bouquets to dry in the dining room and perfume it with an earthy sweetness. It’s subtle, but nice. I wouldn’t mind at all if the cottage smelled of lavender year round.
This was fun and easy to create. I simply looped a piece of hemp string over the shutter and secured it with a knot. I tied the herb bundles with ribbon and using the same ribbon, I tied them to the hemp string. Enjoy!
