I’ve got a thing for herbs. Every year I plant lavender, rosemary, parsley, sage, lemon thyme, chives, dill, mint, basil and oregano. By mid-summer, I’ve got enough herbs to supply a hoppin’ gourmet restaurant.
I use some of the herbs in my cooking (I also use mint, lemon thyme and lavender in my handmade soap), but often I have lots left over.
What should I do with rest of my lovely plants?
Lately, I’ve discovered so many beautiful ways that herbs can be incorporated into a wedding – from the bouquets to the boutonnieres. Here are some ideas that I love:
