Daily Life, Planting Herbs by Joan Tavolott

Today I went out and bought herbs for my patio. I don't get very much direct sun so I'm not sure how some of them will do. I grew basil and rosemary last year and they did fine, so I planted them again as well as curly parsley and dill. Of course I made a mess and there was soil all over. lol
The pots will sit on the railing of my patio with the flower boxes filled with impatients.
All I know is the basil already smells so good!

  1. Such an inviting, "gardeny" painting! I hope you have a bumper crop!

  2. Perfect. I love the smell of growing basil. I can't seem to keep it alive in pots. What is that sparkly blue on the sides and shadow? Love it.

    1. LOL I took a photo while the shadow was still wet. That is the flash reflected in the damp paint.

  3. Joan - try mint - it likes moist conditions and doesn't mind shade. I love herbs too!

  6. Beautifully composed sketch, makes me long to plant some herbs, especially basil. I like to have some on my kitchen window sill, and the smell is so gorgeous. I hope they all do well for you.
