Spring Flowers, Purple Water and Herb Garden

1     Spring can’t be too far away. The days are longer and the Spring flowers showing their colours.

2     The water from cooking some purple sprouting broccoli was so beautiful. Even the scratches on this 46 year old Pyrex bowl make a pretty design!

3    A few days ago we cleared out the overgrown herbs and today the lovely Mr S has replanted and it’s looking good!  There are three kinds of Thyme to add to the others already in the wall, further around the curve – Lemon Thyme, a prostrate variety called Pink Ripple and a variegated one called Foxley – and a Sage that will have white flowers.   I take a special delight in the Saffron Crocuses which have already flowered this year but the Nursery assures me there will be some Saffron to harvest next year! I’ll be able to make Saffron Buns with our own saffron!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Forward

I love how the waves always appear to be rolling forward even when the tide is going out. Click on any photo to see beautiful detail. All these have been taken on the North Coast of Cornwall where the waves are wonderful in any weather.
