Cathy's Vase this week contains some garden treasures and she continues her Sultry Theme. Do go over to view a selection of friend's vases joining in with this weekly theme.
In a little Art Deco glass jug a few herbs from the garden make up a collection of flowers and foliage for today's In a Vase on Monday.
Purple Sage, feathery fennel fronds, the lovely fury leaves of Apple Mint, purloined from the bees the first of the Chive flowers and what I was led to believe Winter Savoury.
Pelargonium Pink Capricorn is a delight. It is a Scented Leaf Pelargonium, but I have yet to explore its use in the kitchen. A few of the petals sprinkled over something pale and delicate such as a panna cotta would look pretty.
A few stems of the Rosemary which has not stopped flowering all winter, and in the front this lovely pink herb, all add a lovely floral scent in the Kitchen. All winter I have been using the 'winter savoury'. The strong flavour reminiscent of a robust thyme is superb with beans, and in Winter Stews. Both of these are sustaining many of the bees and bumblebees in the garden.
