The weather is playing with us these days. There was a hint of spring for a while and then we were back at winter… so, so cold. Now, apparently is the rain before warm days to come this week. The garden is full of pesky snails and slugs. I spend more time gardening now, making the most of staying at home. The idea of having a herb garden always seduced me and the first one we managed not to kill was the rosemary. Coriander, watercress, parsley… tried them all to no avail. Then, thyme. Slowly, shyly, it survived the winter. And mint and basil, after so many attempts…!
Now, these plants we cared for are flowering for the first time and it’s glorious, such a big surprise. Now, there’s a lovely scent everwhere and now our cooking is that bit more special.
