A Favorite Coming Back in the Herb Garden! Is There One in Your Garden?

We had a cold and wet winter this past season.  Here in the southwestern PA area, we are typically Zone 6.  I am always excited when an herb that is not hardy for us, comes back.  Such is the case with this lemon verbena.  I always have multiples and this year I have four, three in the garden and one in a container.  It has been raining almost every day and two of the three in the ground are waterlogged.  Not this one.  It is very happy with the reflected heat of the wall!  I'm happy as well.  If a unexpected favorite is coming back in your herb garden, please let us know about it.  Talk to you later.

Phil Was Completely Wrong and We Still Have Snow!

The Herb Garden As of This Morning!
Just in case you thought you were missing something going on in my herb garden.  Yes, herbs are waking up and being covered all over again by snow.  Hopefully SW PA will be on the road to spring by this weekend.  It's Easter!  We are supposed to be 50's.  So we can only pray to the herbal gods that the forecasters will be correct.  What's it doing in your neighborhood?  Hope everyone has a very blessed Passover and Easter holiday.  I'm going to make an attempt to post more for The Herbal Bouquet.  Talk to you later.
