FINDING HERBS IN MY DESOLATE GARDEN

I went out to pick some herbs this morning. After several days of heavy rain and wind, the garden looks very desolate and is sodden. But I did find some herbs and made a great pot of soup, very tasty and warming on this November day. A bleak watery sun is breaking through a cloudy sky, it gives energy, the nights come so early these days, and the town is already lit up with Christmas decoration, too early in my opinion, but at the same time, it does brighten up these dark grey sky days. The Doves have returned to the bird table looking for food. It’s great to have the birds around, that is for sure.

I happen to find some Jerusalem Artichokes over the weekend, used them in the soup too, but will plant some of them in the garden as it is good food, and it even gives interesting flowers.
