When there’s planting to do, in the veg patch but, but…
How about a wildflower trail
That winds down to grass uncut?
Or how about some kitchen drawers that now grow herbs –
Call me a nut?
Why, yes, yes, of course I am – but the kind that worships birds and bees
And every whisper through the trees
That say “I’m glad to be alive
In a world where bees still rule their hive”
And I grow organic cilantro, balm and chive…
A Salvage Artist never throws anything out. These kitchen cupboard doors and drawers are now an herb garden right outside the kitchen door (soon to be a Dutch/stable door, thank you Richard! Still working on making them look attractive, but I was excited to see today that the borage and cilantro are already sprouting up in neat little rows! And many of the herbs and wildflowers I’m planting are PURELY to encourage the bees to pollinate, although the amount of them buzzing among the apple blossoms and dandelions suggest to me that they are off to a good start!
