I bought a few pots of herbs from a vendor at the flea market a few weeks ago.
This variety of basil does not flower but is very delicate... ...the vendor told me to watch over it carefully.
...its days are numbered.
Now, on the other hand... ...he told me that this variety of lavender will get really tall and that it is very hardy.
I like tall. I like hardy.
I also bought rosemary whose scent I adore.
This sieve came from the flea market too.... It could be used for drying herbs or... ...if the herbs don't make it... ...I could hang my earrings on it!
Tomorrow is Thursday already! It is supposed to be a beautiful weekend and you know what that means! I'm looking forward to one of my favorite annual sales at a nearby school as well as a visit to the flea market...
...and then my beautiful daughter will be celebrating her 24th birthday... ...now that is hard to believe!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
