Waiting to put down roots

Cooking is one of my favorite creative activities.  Fresh herbs have always played a big role in my cooking.  At our NY home, I had an herb garden right outside the front door, right under the kitchen window.  One of the advantages of living in Virginia that I have been looking forward to is the warmer and longer growing season.  My favorite herb, rosemary, can survive the winter outside in Virginia and thrive in the climate there.  🙂

Here’s a few of my plants and herbs from my NY garden waiting to be put into Virginia soil.  We will have a deck right outside the kitchen that will hold my new herb garden.  The fig trees will find a home in the yard somewhere.  Yes, some of these would be available for purchase in VA but I really liked the idea of bringing some of my favorite plants with me to put down roots along with us in our new home.

More rosemary, lemon thyme, oregano, and winter savory.

Not an herb but an important plant for me. This lovely little black eyed susan variety was part of my NY garden that I had originally gotten from my parent’s garden.
