Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme...

This past week my garden was an intoxicating place, filled with the perfume of lilac and wisteria in bloom. I think that was made me decide to revamp part of our driveway/court yard. I rearranged and put stuff away, brought out other stuff, potted and potted and rearranged... and now I have a little herb and aroma garden. It isn't finished yet - still needs some work and some faery dust - but I love the idea so far.


Lots of sage, rosemary, thyme, lemon balm, catnip, cat balm, strawberries, hyssop, rainbow chard, lady's mantle...

This morning, while I was musing which herbs I still need for this garden by the 'tower clock', the words thyme's garden suddenly came to mind...



and sent me off to my work bench to make these earrings. Thyme's Garden...

I hope you are enjoying spring's perfume, however you are spending your Sunday.
