Pot of Herbal Tea

So cute! I was at the green house shopping for herbs and roses when I saw this beautiful collection of plants in a light green pot.

Literally a "Pot of Herbal Tea," it is loaded with Orange Mint, Chamomile and Lemon Balm to make tea from fresh leaves

It smells so bright & wonderful, I am going to keep it by the kitchen sink for as long as it looks "happy." After a few weeks, I'll move it to the kitchen deck to keep it flourishing.

Can't you see bright green leaves steeping inside a glass teapot? Gorgeous!

Hi Anne! Thanks for visiting my blog :-)

I love this pot of "growing tea"! Spearmint tea is one of my favorites, esp. for a sore throat, with honey.

I've been wanting to take a trip to my favorite herb nurdery (Gilberties in Westport, CT) and get some herbs for my containers.

Hi, Anne -- heard about your blog (and book -- good for you!) on the PDP site. Scrolled down here and saw that you were involved in the Country Living Women Entrepreneurs thing. I used to work at Country Living, and before that at Country Living Gardener.
Just wanted to say that I really like your blog.

Hi Melissa. Yes, I love herbs too. My annual herb project is planting a strawberry pot with my Dad to celebrate Father's Day. We usually plan it over Memorial Day so you should see it in the blog soon! Best, Anne
