Summer is here, make room!


Nigella sativa and Nigella (photo by Francesca York) http://www.nigella.com - this photo is for Kenny. Learn more about the herb here.

These are not quite the right colours but I like them, some strange technical fairyland has touched the edge of my photo! Surreal.

My garden is being dug up and replanted to make an aromatic herb garden. I am excited. Will update you on progress.

I'd like some blue roses, wouldn't you?

Envy you...to have your own herb and flower garden. Always think it's a soothing feeling to wake up in the morning and look into a garden. Nice and therapeutic :)

I am lucky to have my plot of earth and some aromatic plants. Sighh, it definitely makes my day better to spend time in my garden (to-be). Can have small aromatic garden too...they grow well in pots and on windowsills!

I lurvee the colours, however 'not right' they are. Heheh.. and yes, blue roses are really nice. ;o)

The surreal colors worked on me. I could almost smell the flowers, if only I don't have problems with dust allergy.

O the smells and fragrance as you wake up in the morning and step into the garden out of the kitchen. (Bear with me, I'm visualising my perfect home here. Heck, I guess I just want Nigella Lawson's house.)

The colours are interesting. Blue roses would be fab. My fav would be yellow, though I'm beginning to fall for the white ones too. :)

Wow, everyone's waxing lyrical over roses. Remember to smell the chicken dung in the beds before the roses come up, k. Because life is not always a bed of roses, and the smelly chicken shit is there to make your roses more beautiful.

I think I'm high on bergamot and lemongrass.

Yea, she's so hot. A real woman with curves, not one of those anorexic-Paris-Hilton clones...

*sighs dreamily*

Dear Msiagirl,
