Herb Garden

Mac planted some herbs for me in my laundry room window---basil, mint, sage, and some hen and chicks.  I have all of these out in the garden, but it's nice to have them a little closer so I can snip fresh bits off.
They were just in regular pots until I saw what Sue over at Our New Life in the Country had done with her herbs, she's planted them in pewter.  Well we've collected pewter for years so Mac went around the house and collected a few pieces and replanted the plants.  Don't they look great.

  4. The paintings in the header are Mac's work, they hang above the fireplace in the family room.

  7. I love your "pots"! Great to use the old dust catchers in a new way. And you've just given me an idea!

  8. I've been inspired to put a few plants in pots outside this year. Usually I just put everything in the ground, but the containers do add an element of interest. I love the silhouettes your pewter pots make :) Great idea!
