Our Beautiful World - AROMATIC

The theme over at the Our Beautiful World blog this week is AROMATIC. What a delightful prompt! I adore aromatic plants. I grow herbs in tubs round the garden and love walking past them and just stroking them to release the wonderful aromatic fragrances. Of course, I love cooking with them as well.

This little old zinc wash tub contains rosemary, sage, parsley and chives -

And this tub holds peppermint. Freshly made peppermint tea is so refreshing in the summer! -

I also managed to snatch a little time in the craftavan to make some tags to go with customer orders -

Wishing you all a wonderful week,

Hello Liz,

Your herbs look wonderful in the zinc containers. And, very sensible for Mint which, otherwise, tend to take over the entire garden in the blink of an eye.

Great to position the containers close to the kitchen door so that fresh herbs can be snipped at hand!

Adore your zinc tubs, I cannot imagine what they would cost here in the US. Rosemary is the only outside herb we can keep alive in our heat. We have lots of rosemary.

Have a wonderful week, xo Rhonda
