Thanks so much for all the sweet comments and compliments on the kitchen project. You all know how to make a girl smile. It's such a relief when all of the choices you've made start coming together and don't look, well... awful.
We had a cold snap last week that I am hoping is now leaving us for good. My optimistic late april potted plants seem to have weathered the worst and we were all enjoying the sunshine this afternoon.
I'm adding several herbs this year. Mint and English Thyme in this one:
And smaller starts of parsley, rosemary and basil in these little planters. The gal at the nursery was very helpful and urged me to start these indoors as they wouldn't be quite as hardy as the other two, and I'm glad I did. It will be nice to transplant these soon, though, and watch them take off. There is nothing like cooking with truly fresh herbs.
I hope you are glimpsing a bit of sunshine in your bit of of the world today. xo
