Another Herb Bed


Another Herb Bed

I sat last Sunday and did a quick plein air sketch of one of my herb beds in bloom -- It's filled with lavender (which gave me the florets for my shortbread) and that orangey/red flower is Agastache rupestris -- the leaves smell just like tutti-fruitti. My sage is also in bloom --- We pass this bed when we enter the front door -- fragrant and merry!

Herbs can be just as pretty as flowers, and their smell is wonderful. Nice colors in this!!

I love the combination! And I can just imagine the smell. And I know how hard you work to make all this happen - and then you still have time to make these glorious paintings!
