Herb Pruning

Where did all the rain go? We had the best spring ever! It rained so much, I really never had to water our flower & herb gardens. However, now it’s dry and hot out there! DSC_0568 The hour before it gets dark is not quite as hot…so, I ventured out to prune the herbs. (and any plants that were out-of-control) DSC_0572 DSC_0573 When I have all the extra clippings…I usually bring them inside to make little bouquets. This time, I made one big centerpiece. DSC_0576 This one includes, silver mound, pineapple sage, chives, sage, and dusty miller. You may be able to tell, but I do adore the silvery tone plants 🙂 I arranged the clippings in a large jar a placed it into this vintage bucket. (the bucket is for sale HERE in our ONLINE SHOP) DSC_0581 Of course, my sweet Jovi B had to be a photo bomber 🙂 DSC_0582 And that’s how I use my clippings from pruning the garden 🙂 How about you? Do you make bouquets out of left-over clippings too? DSC_0571 Have a lovely day my friends! Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂 Blessings

    I never like to trim my herbs because I feel like they look like they went to the salon and got a bad haircut! So I let them grow and they look wild. I do like your bucket! The silvery herbs are my favorite too.

  3. Becky your bouquet is amazingly beauitful. Right from the garden is always the best. Jo

    Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Of course I love the pail. Everything in your home looks so refreshing. I'm sure your home smells beautiful now too!

  6. We had a summer just like yours…rain, rain and more rain and in the last two weeks hot and dry. Been watering to keep things going. A beautiful bouquet!
