Parsley, Sage Rosemary and Thyme!

With the lovely sun putting in an appearance this past week it spurred me on to have a go at making a herbal wreath as I have quite a good collection growing about the garden. It looked and smelt really lovely as I was making it and after a couple of days left in the shed it had started to dry off nicely,as had the gorgeous faded hydrangea heads I had already picked. These will  look lovely in an old vase when the days are getting darker and cooler and summer seems a million miles away.
At last I have Sunflowers and the bees and other insects are busy making the most of them in these late summer days. When they have finished flowering I will cut them off with a portion of stem and hang them around the garden for the birds to feed on through the Autumn.
On Bank Holiday Monday we had  a really great day out  with Mark and Emma on the boat up to Garstang where we stopped at the canal side pub for a lazy lunch  before heading back. Everyone was happy and relaxed and work seemed to be forgotten about for those few hours at least.

  1. We did indeed have a lovely day on the boat, we were so lucky with the weather!

    The herb wreath looks fab, are you going to keep it in the kitchen?

    The Hydrangea head look very interesting, do you just cut and leave to dry? I might try doing that with some from my garden.
