• Mini lavender in a hanging basket.  We were selling mini lavender at #springflowerfair.  Just for fun, I put one in a hanging basket in tge herb garden.  The nasturtiums in the basket took over, hiding it but it did manage to send out one late flower.

  • Pineapple sage- It's that time of year again when the pineapple sage bursts into bloom just as other flowers are winding down for the season.  The leaves are used to make a refreshing pineapple flavored tea.  And if you are lucky enough to have hummingbirds migrating through your area, they find it irresistible.

  • Garlic chives used as a border.  Also known as Chinese leeks, garlic chives have the onion flavor of regular chives combined with a hint of garlic.  The leaves are flat.  The flowers appear in late summer.

  • Praying Mantis on rosemary.  I'm seeing more praying Mantis than usual this year.  Has anyone else noticed this?
