nature in the home - a series..............

I'm joining in with Lou again today, the theme is still foraging but with a bit of a difference. We have been challenged to come up with gift ideas for May Day. I decided to pick some herbs from my garden which has quite a few hardy fragrant plants, I've chosen Rosemary, Bay, Thyme, Marjoram, Chives and a sprig of Lavender to make a small culinary bouquet, the fragrances are quite heady, especially the Rosemary and Lavender.

I bound the herbs together with some pretty pink cotton ribbon and I'm going to give the tied bunch to my youngest sister who loves cooking, I hope she will think to dry any spare bay leaves and herbs for later use.

I think this is one of my favourite link ups, thank you Lou for helping me appreciate my plants and garden .................hope you all have a lovely long Bank Holiday Weekend.

talk soon x


  1. I love herbs, I had some in my garden. Until my Dalmatian went and dug all my pots up!!!!!! I love him to bits but he is a digger unfortunately. I think I have some chives left and a raggedy bit of sage, the lavender is hanging on by the skin of its teeth, owing to the fact he keeps bringing me pieces of it!!! Rowen@Coastal Colours x

  2. That would make a lovely gift! What a sweet idea! :-)

  3. What a lovely herb garden you have! Beautiful gift idea ♥

  4. Hello Sue I'm just catching up and I love your culinary herb bouquet, that is such a lovely gift idea, especially for a keen cook. I loved seeing your new bunnies too on your previous post.... they are so sweet!
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  5. This is such a lovely gift, what a wonderful idea. x

  6. What a lovely - and original - idea to make a herb posy that can be used. Very useful and it looks nice too! x

  7. What a great idea. I haven't dried herbs for a while. In fact I need to replenish my herbs they've died in the snow. x


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment.
I read them all and always try to get back to you x
