A "growing" passion for tea
I should probably warn you that I am getting into "gardening mode," and with Spring not far away, it's a good time to start thinking about growing my own herbs, especially those that can be used in cooking and for making tea.
These pots aren't that deep so the plants in them are probably more for inspiration than anything else at this point, but I've got some mint, lavender and lemon verbena in them at the moment. And aren't these teacup and teapot pots the cutest things you've ever seen? They're from England and were a birthday gift from a green thumbed friend a few years back, one of the most perfect gifts ever.
Are any of you gardeners? Do you grow your own herbs for tea? If so, what do you recommend? Inquiring gardener minds want to know!
