We have been busy (I should say Tony) has been busy harvesting our herbs and sunflowers so that we can take them to the store for sale. My porch rooms, at our home, delight the senses of smell and sight - the scent of sage dominates the rooms but there is a hint of rosemary and mint! The sunflowers are always delightful! The storms and high winds, a week ago, took their toll on some of the sunflowers so we are lucky to have saved these. I will take the bundles and hang on the olde beams at the store along with the Sweet Annie and the store will look beautiful.
This has been a really good year for our herbs and flowers....rain, humidity, lots of sunshine...and some prayers have seemed to make the plants just as happy as can be!
Today I will preparing for our Fairy in a Jar class - getting my car inspected - and since I didn't get ANY pumpkins made yesterday - hopefully sewing and stuffing. It is hard to be indoors when the weather is so beautiful - but here it is five days into August already and our Harvest Thyme Open House is less than a month away....exciting and scary that time is going so fast!
