We always have our Herb Faire Mother's Day Weekend. It has become tradition that some Moms and Daughters come to the store this weekend together. I love that. My Mom is no longer here with us but she will certainly be with me in spirit. She loved our little store.....was so proud of her oldest daughter - wish I could give her a hug right now!
I enjoy having events at the store and our Herb Faire is a fun one. Gives me a chance to play with making some herbal treats - (and get all fancy with pineapple mint floating in the Rosemary Tea Cooler.....and the rose geranium cheeseball completely covered with johnny-jump-ups)....I will surely take some pics and post them here. I made (and saved) some lavender sugar last year to use in a pound cake and this year we are going to have "strawberry soup"with "mint"....there was a neat recipe in the Wool Street Journal magazine and I can't wait to try it.
We pick up our herbs on Tuesday and will set up Thursday evening.....guess you can tell I am excited... It seemed like a very long winter.....and now it is time to play outside!
