Evening Garden Visit
A few weeks ago, I was offered the opportunity to tour a friends’ beautiful garden in full summer swing. She is an active herbalist, so not only was her garden teaming with beauty — every nook inside her home was beaming. Flowers were drying on the counter top, her pantry was full of last years canning crop, floral tinctures and infused oils lined the shelves. Everything had a place and a purpose. It was beautiful herbal brightness.
We spent the evening walking around her garden space, talking about the plants and their purposes, and sipping on deliciously smooth white wine. The bounty was amazing and her dedication, hard work, and knowledge shined through every seed, flower, and root.
Her and her partner recently added a beautiful koi pond to a small area that was left as pasture. It was wonderful to learn and see how lily pads and their aquatic ecosystem work together. 😀
