The sun was shining this morning...a perfect day for the annual herb fair. The herb fair is a sure sign that warm weather is here to stay. I love walking around the stands taking in all the scents of the herbs, flowers and heirloom roses and tomatoes. The backdrop of a local museum adds to the fun.
Every year I buy a few herbs and pot them in a large round container. I dream of having an herb garden like the one's in Williamsburg...or Provence...or even the small one that I had in my other home. Things don't seem to get done around here, and an herb garden isn't high on the list. So, every year, I plant my petite Italian flavor and "Bruschetta" garden in my round clay pot.
Of course, I can't leave the herb fair without a few pips of lily-of-the-valley and lavender! I haven't been able to establish the lily of the valley in this house yet either...but, I keep trying. In my old home, I had so many that I could pick them for bouquets.
There was a stand at the fair selling homemade soaps. I wish you could experience the amazing scent of these elegant bars.
Have a fragrant day!!!
