Herbs are such gracious plants, aren't they?
They are so fragrant and lush.
Last year, we had a mint plant that was quite generous with her thousands of leaves.
By fall, however, she was on the wane.
Could she survive inside during the winter?
It didn't look like it.
Hubs put her up on the landing of the third floor where the attic is located.
As winter snows fell and skies clouded over, little mint looked pretty forlorn.
I thought, and so did hubs, that she was a goner. However, he continued to water her.
While bringing up a large tub of Easter decorations to the attic recently, my hand brushed by the dormant mint plant.
A luscious fragrance filled the air and as I glanced down at minty, I almost screamed out loud.
Not only was she alive, she was flourishing and sending up little sprouts!
Now, we'll keep her well watered and put her in the healing sun.
There's no doubt in my mind that she will give us lots of mint throughout the coming months.
DO YOU LOVE HERBS?
