An Herbal Plant Explosion!


Well, if you have read my previous posts on lemon verbena, this is NOT supposed to happen!  It has just taken off!  Most of the time, it loses its leaves because the plant is mad it has to come inside.  Sometimes we have leaves that hang on for dear life.  This time it just went CRAZY!  I guess it needed a vacation from us as well.  This is one of three windows that has a southern exposure in our house.  It likes it there!!  I foresee several lemon verbena breads in The Herbal Husband's future.  He will be herbally happy!  If you missed the bread recipe the first time, here is the post again.

Thanks Kary for your comment and joining my fans. The recipe is better with fresh leaves so I will be making at least a couple of recipes, may be more. You have worked for my favorite gardening magazine Country Living Gardener. Have every issue! I also am a big fan of Sharon Lovejoy! Will take a longer look at your blog. Saw some yellowware, a favorite collectible of mine. Hope you come by again soon. Nancy

Lemon verbenas just play dead so easily. I was so surprised Leslie how happy this one has become! Thanks as always for your comment! xxoo ;>}
