A blog about food, and a little about reading, and some sewing, and I might even knit something.

My herb garden is supervised by St. Francis.

Gorgeous pic – I wish I had a St. Francis to look after my herb garden, maybe he could have stopped the red spider mites attacking my sage whilst I was on holiday 🙁

Oh, I love this photo. I had a St. Francis in my garden years ago and one morning I looked out and he had a squirrel sitting on his head! The squirrel’s tail was hanging down F’s back, like one of those Davy Crockett hats we wore when I was little.
Somehow, I think Francis would have liked that…

Very cool. I was pretty sure he was an actual person at first!

I absolutely love any type of garden art! I need to look at expanding our collection this spring! Thanks for sharing. Your photography is always so good (I am working on improving mine).

I think I need one of those in my garden. It needs lots of looking after.

That is touching. I’ve been having my eye on a statue of St. Francis at our nursery.

I like the shadow on his shoulder, nice angle.

That is so neat. It looks like Rosemary in the background. I love cooking with Rosemary.

Isn’t it nice to have someone else help while you’re busy? Especially when it’s this cold.

There are others who keep cranberries year round also -I love it.

Looks like you have a lot of herbs left still.
