Fresh Herb Wreath

Even though fall is in the air, my herbs are still growing like crazy! I love mixing herbs in my perennial beds and in pots with annuals. They are so lovely and fragrant. And fresh herbs make everything taste better!













Before we have our first frost, I decided to gather some herbs for a quick and easy wreath.











I just snipped some of my favorites and bundled them together with twine.





Then attached them to a grapevine wreath.










So simple and wonderfully fragrant!

Wonderful~ I love fresh herbs too...nothing in the world can equal that scent. I used to grow SweetAnnie and now I can't find it anywhere. It was one of my very favorites.

Won't be much longer and I think your herbs will be put to bed for winter...enjoy them while you can. Hugs- Diana

What a great idea for when company is coming over! I don't have any herbs, but I bet this would work well with the lavender I have in my backyard.

If you get a chance, I'd love for you to link to this on Not "Baaad" Sundays with LambAround :)

This is a fabulous way to use your herbs. Oh my! It must smell divine!
I am going to try to make a smaller version. I have so many yummy herbs left in my garden!
Beautiful.
