Hidden in the Corner



Here's a corner of my garden/terrace.  This is where I grow my herbs, as well as basil, chives, thyme and there is a chilli pepper plant at the back.   I also grow mint, oregano, sage and rosemary, it's nice to have something fresh from the garden to add flavour to your cooking? 
Especially useful to throw on some pasta if you're in a hurry...all you need  to add is some olive oil, a spot of garlic and a good sprinkle of parmesan cheese!

What a lovely (drawing of your) herb garden!

I love growing herbs too - fresh basil in a salad tastes wonderful.

This is one of my favorite paintings of yours. You've conveyed the sense of intimacy of that little spot in a very creative way. The shading and texture on the terra cotta pot is wonderful.

This is lovely, especially the different shades of greens. Looks like a very special spot.

Your composition in this little vignette is outstanding. My eye moves around the drawing in a really pleasing way. I also like the colors, with the bright blue on top, the orange-y terracotta on the bottom and the variety of greens in the middle. Fresh herbs...yummmm!

I don't know how you manage to put so much into such a small, humble, subject. This is just lovely. nancy
