This week, I have a few photos of my container herb garden, which is set up on our deck, close to the kitchen. I love having fresh herbs ready for my husband/chef when he needs them. Besides the usual parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, I grow mint, oregano, basil and chives. I also put in a beautiful dark purple ornamental pepper plant, with tiny flowers and peppers. I love the contrast with the green herbs!
This post also gave me an opportunity to try out my new Canon SX50 camera. It’s like a mini dslr, with a single “super zoom” lens. It zooms to 50x, which is the equivalent of 1200 mm. It did pretty well so far, and I think it will be great for travel! I also look forward to testing it on videos.
