Some bunny's been in the herb garden | easy centerpiece idea
My local garden center is bursting with new plants and blooms. Bright, beautiful annuals, flowering hydrangeas, vegetable plants and fragrant herbs. I love to walk through and dream of my "perfect" yard. It would be full of ferns, hydrangea, dogwoods, hosta - shades of green and white. Alas, my thumb is not green and I forget to water, so I stick with hearty plants that can take the South Georgia heat - asparagus ferns and lantana are my go-to choices! Fortunately, I have a husband that loves a garden (and water). When planning a centerpiece, I always try to use cuttings from the yard or something that can be repurposed. For this rustic centerpiece, I selected an assortment of herbs. Spearmint, fennel, dill, Italian parsley and sage - planted directly in a sturdy box made of reclaimed barn wood.
The simple addition of green to my already colorful tablecloth is all I needed to round out this table setting. After a few days, I'll transfer these to the herb planters and we will enjoy freshness all season long!
