Gathering herbs....



The rain seems to keep coming for all the special events or days we plan (Fourth of July picnic)....however...luckily Tony and I harvested our herb gardens to the bare bones and now the beautiful rain will feed the wounded stems and get them growing very quickly again. The fairies will be pleased with the rain I am sure!

Since picnic plans had to be cancelled due to the weather...Tony and I went - "antiquing" of course !! We traveled about 1 1/2 hours to Stroudsburg, PA where we like to visit and antique co-op called The Olde Engine Works. We came home with some treasures and will get them in the store shortly. Two awesome wooden chairs - painted a subdued pumpkin color - these are going to make great garden chairs especially with a pot full of mums for the fall.....and lots more.

Above is a picture of the drying racks Tony made from the 1983 Country Living magazine....I have had mine since then and love it. Right now it is in the living room but sometimes it is in the bathroom and sometimes in the kitchen - I am always changing things around in the house and you never know where something might end up! We have the drying racks in the store for sale now, if you are interested stop in !!
Hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend......still raining here.....
