An informative sampling focused on herbs and tea with an occasional sprinkling of fairy dust and a glimpse into family activities too. The contributions to this blog is the combined effort created by the sisters of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances.
Part of our recent Traveling Herb Seminar in Cape May, NJ included a morning tour of some of the environmentally friendly local gardens. Cape May is a stopping point for many of the Monarch Butterflies as they travel up and down the east coast to Mexico. Therefore, many residents have gardens with butterfly friendly host plants (host plants are for the caterpillars to feed) and nectar plants (for the butterflies to feed on).
We loved all the cheerful, beachy garden art.
The environmentally friendly gardens give the birds a colorful place to live as well.
This vertical garden was made from a repurposed wooden skid.
This little layered sedum garden (R) on the corner of the brick wall added a section for additional plantings, but doesn't block the driver's view while repurposed pans (L) provide the perfect container for plants.
