A messy miscellany of musings beginning with the marvelous letter M!
Morning photos ...
Easily amused, I am ... but this sinkful of suds and springy fabrics scented with Woolite brought back fond memories of Grandma!
The birds (wrens or sparrows?) are building a nest in the birdhouse gourd on the patio ... mesmerizing!
Men at work, tilling the ministry garden!
My hubby manhandling the tiller. He makes it look easy (it's not...oh my... not for me anyway).
And finally ... Motel in the background of the ministry garden ... maybe not the most charming of places to stay.
Memories of a morning on the beach ... my how my babies have grown!
See what I mean ...
OK, now that I've meandered down memory lane and mosied by the ministry garden ...
I must mention at least one herb or I'll just feel like something is missing.
So, today's herb of the day is Mint.
Mint is marvelous, most delicious smelling, and a must for your garden as well as your teapot. Many, many varieties of mint are to be found - peppermint, spearmint, applemint, orange mint, lemon mint, even chocolate mint!
Mint is also helpful around the house. Ants get all mixed up when you put mint in their pathway ... messes with their minds or something!
Mint essential oil in a bowl of steamy water is a momentous help when you have a stuffy head.
Just be careful never to plant mint directly in the garden, it will most likely become a menace! Put it in a container instead, where it can mind its manners.
That's it for this edition of Alphabe-Thursday. Visit Jenny Matlock for more fun with the letter M!
