Garden Chic

Sunday, May 6, 2012

You know how it is when you have projects you're supposed to get to and yet you pass by them everyday, dreading getting started?  I was like that.  What is that?  It's something like Writer's Block, so let's call it Project Block.  Project Block hit hard for a month or two but then on Friday, it magically cleared and all I wanted to do was get going on my spoons.  My lovely mother found a beautiful assortment of vintage spoons at an estate sale a few months back and shared a few with me because she knows I have crafty, old-cat-lady collecting issues.  So I made a few sets of garden markers out of them.  If you like shabby chic, or rustic anything like me, you know the appeal.  Project Block begone!

Lavender has to be one of my favorite herbs in the garden.  
Hawaii Edition!  If you live in Hawaii or spent some extended time here, you know that these herbs are staples in a Hawaiian garden.  Chinese Parsley -- Cilantro -- is universally appealing here.  Everyone calls scallions "Green Onions."  Chili Peppers, whether the Hawaiian or Thai variety, are a requirement in everything from Hubby's Korean Kal-Bi Rib marinade, to my chili pepper water.  
Staple herbs anywhere, these would perk up anyone's garden.
