Soon there will be a garden of Jekka's favorites. I think 30 different herbs in all. She is also still sells herbs at the nursery. Just does not do mail order. And if that all wasn't enough she was also busy getting ready to go to the Chelsea Flower Show in London.
She lead us on a tour of the new herbetum which is her pride and joy. The beds give you the growing habits of herbs and how to contain them if necessary. I think every visit will probably be a new and different experience as it should be. I am learning daily about herbs and I hope to continue to do so until I go to the big herb garden in the sky. I'm going to try next visit to find a time of year when I can take her out to lunch or dinner and spend some time with her. Jekka (and Hannah) are two of my favorites. We had such a great time together when Jekka came to the US for the national herb society meeting. You can read about her visit with me in Pittsburgh in The Herb Channeler's Adventures with Jekka McVicar. Jekka is a special herbal spirit and I am lucky enough to call her my friend.
We are madly planting in the herb garden. I'll show you those photos in the coming days. Hope you had a great day. It was a beautiful day here in the 'Burgh. Talk to you later.
