Herb Garden

This is my herb garden.  Surrounded by the pretty pink vinca is mojito mint, spearmint, orange mint and thai basil.  Each mint has a distinctive flavor which gives an extra boost to water, iced tea, smoothies and salads.  Mint takes the heat so it’s a good fit for Arizona.  I even tucked a cute wooden bird in to keep the mint and basil company.

  2. Stopping in from the blog hop. This is a great idea for a small space! I also love growing cilantro and basil, even though they both get a bit leggy.
