|Still Trying to Make the Germander a Hedge!|
|I Love the Gray of the Artemisia!|
|Wow, This Lamb's Ear Has Taken Its Share of the Herb Garden!|
|Always A Green Source in Winter in the Herb Garden, Salad Burnet!|
It is such a nice day that I ventured out and took some photos of my favorites in the herb garden this time of year even when it is very snowy. I also wanted to try and get a list together of moving herbs so that we are on top of it this season. I need to think about the oregano population in the herb garden. It is spreading everywhere and taking space where I could have other varieties and you know how I like other varieties of herbs!
Two of my favorite green plants even in the cold of winter are germander and salad burnet. Germander is a traditional hedge in the herb garden and mine is looking more like a small hedge each day. And salad burnet that gives you a cucumbery taste in salad and makes a lovely vinegar. It does not taste so much like cucumber this time of year. It keeps you in suspense! The gray favorites are artemisia and lamb's ear. The artemisia was transplanted late in the season last year and hopefully it will make a hedge similar to the germander. The lamb's ears are volunteers that need to be moved around. It will continue to grow out of scale again where I could plant other herbs! What are your favorite green and gray herbs in the winter garden.
Almost the second week of February and I have been busy with my stitching. Here is where I am on the afghan.
