One of my favorite things to do is gardening. Not only is it relaxing, but it also makes me smile to watch the plants and flowers to come into their own.

This year I’ve decided to see what I can so with herbs so I’ve picked up mint and basil. This week I plan to add chives, lemon grass, and possibly thyme and rosemary.

Below are a few shots I took at my favorite garden shop. They are only open several months, but as you can see for yourself, they have a great selection.

Weather permitting, I think we’ll try to pay the shop a visit tomorrow.

    It’s hard to imagine a plant shop open only for a few months. I’d love to see how you arrange your plants. Our vegetable garden is growning fine for the first since we moved in. But we shall see the fruit of our hard work later this summer.

    I know- that’s what I thought too Summer, but they are open from April until June and then close for the season. There are a gazillion other garden centers in the area, but that’s my favorite- they have a great variety and I don’t find their prices to be bad at all.

    Dani are you blogging anywhere at all? I would love to see the photos, and I love fresh herbs. I made a melon salad last summer with mixed greens, various melon and mint, along with feta cheese, pine nuts and a little balsamic vinegar- I had it at my favorite local beach cafe, and was determined to make it myself. At least now i won’t have to buy the mint- I’ll have it on hand.
