Saturday was so mild and beautiful, I felt like it was late April instead of almost December! But our weather is very unpredictable...when I woke up this morning it had been raining and most of the snow was gone. By the time I had finished chores, however, it was already back to a winter wonderland!
I have really fallen in love with herbs this year! Half of the pleasure of gardening for me is in all the fragrances. Even today in the snow, I can brush my hand against some lemon balm, or catnip, or lavender, or oregano, and just breathe in the scents! It really lifts my spirits on a dreary day! Needless to say, I'm planning to grow many more herbs next year!
Oregano after the snow this morning...
I think Sweet William is so beautiful in snow...
And now finally, my vase! These are just a few sprigs of oregano and horehound. I found out that the horehound seedheads will stick to gloves like burrs!
I found this vase at a thrift store last month, and have been looking forward to using it. Since I've started participating in IAVOM, I find myself looking at vases whenever we shop there! :)
So there's my winter vase! You can see what other gardeners have arranged today at Rambling in the Garden. Have a great week!
