Herb garden

Getting ready for the upcoming season I put together a mini garden of three of our favorite herbs; Mint, Rosemary, & Cilantro.  Spring starts in two days but who’s counting!

Love the aroma Mint gives off.  Great for mixing into freshly squeezed lemonades, ice teas, or my husband’s killer Mojito!

Rosemary has a potent evergreen smell.  It’s delicious when added to poultry or potato’s.  Plus it’s helps improve memory-I could always use help in this category!

With a more mellow scent Cilantro is a great garnish and a staple condiment when creating Sofrito-hmm!

To add a little pizzaz to my garden I spray painted the container in a fabulous teal color.   What are your favorite herbs?

Blooming!

Over the weekend I couldn’t help but fall in love with the array of orchids on display at my local emporium.  So many options I decided to treat myself to two.

These Phalaenopsis orchids are the commonly sold variety, it offers about 60 species.  Aren’t they gorgeous?

Such a great investment with low maintenance, here’s why:

-Water them every 7 to 10 days.

-Keep them away from direct sunlight.

-Can bloom for a couple of months!
