Herbs: A Place to Begin... Gifts

Being part of our county's Master Gardener Speakers Guild is a lot of fun. My program is titled "Herbs: A Place to Begin". It is for anyone who might be curious about growing herbs or is just beginning to use them. I give simple advice for ways to incorporate beautiful and tasty herbs into your every day life. After such a sweet reception to my presentation, I will be adding regular posts about herbs.
There are already several posts on my Gardening Page and my Recipes Page!
Watch for the ones titled "A Place to Begin"!
Isn't it funny how we anticipate the holidays each year and then suddenly, they just seem to sneak up on us!  All those office parties and family gatherings are just around the corner!  Would you like a simple idea for a hostess gift?

My favorite way to present them is in a simple brown paper bag that has been hand stamped.  I think they are so very charming with herbs waving 'Hello'!

  1. That is an awesome series and your little gift bags are an adorable and simple project!

  2. Dear Marci! I would love to give herbs as gifts to my close family and friends for the holidays. Up here gets a little tricky around winter time and I'm the worst person when it comes to grow something other than weeds, but maybe these are just silly excuses and we all have the gift of "blooming' within us, we just need someone like you to help us dig it out and shine! Definitely would be checking your posts and giving planting another try, Lizy

  3. Oh my, to be so lucky to receive a wonderful gift bag of herbs. I cannot wait to read more via your blog posts.
