A Sweet-Smelling Story

Once upon a time, when I lived in Ohio, a friend made the most delightfully smelling wreath.

The fragrance was so incredible.

I asked her what kind of plant the wreath was made from.

It was an herb, she said, called Sweet Annie.

Another name for it is Artemesia wormwood.

Many decades have  gone by since those adventurous single days but I've never forgotten the Sweet Annie wreath.

So this summer, I was determined to find the herb and grow it with making future wreaths in mind.

It wasn't easy, though. I called probably four to five plant places before finally locating Sweet Annie.

It's growing well and I couldn't be happier.

I've never heard of it, but I am happy you found it. I love lilac bushes.

Sweet Annie is a new one on me. It's great that you were able to find it.

The fragrance of a piece of greenery can be sweet indeed. Glad you found this Sweet Annie and can bring back a memory.

Oh, now you can make your wreath using the herb Sweet Annie. I've never heard of this before. Thanks for sharing, Susan. Now, I'm curious what it smells like. :)
