The 6 Weeks of Bliss Challenge is in its third week,and we are sharing health and wellness wish lists! My wish can come true this spring and summer: I would love to have a container herb garden on our new apartment terrace this year. I moved from New Hampshire to Texas a few years ago, and I still haven’t gotten used to the growing seasons here in the South! Last year, my husband bought me a colorful ceramic flower pot, and I’d love to collect more for my terrace garden.
My favorite herbs are the aromatic culinary herbs, such as rosemary, oregano, thyme and basil. The leaves make delicious teas and infused vinegars; I may even try making some soothing skin lotions or lip balms. Generations of wise women — including my mother and grandmother — inspire me with their knowledge of herbal remedies. I hope to pass on these gifts from my own garden.
Be well and be blessed!
