Sinemage Parsley Buds 1

</br> While I was watering this morning our potted herbs, I saw these tiny buds on the parsley. What a surprise !

Lately, all our herbs have been infested with nasty aphids. Thyme has been totally decimated. Purple basil has bravely survived and proved to be stronger than we thought. And parsley, maybe the sturdiest from the three, is now on the way… to bloom !

Never Give Up, I thought. Yes, that’s the message.

Alors que j’arrosais ce matin nos herbes aromatiques en pot, j’ai vu ces minuscules bourgeons sur le persil. Quelle surprise ! Dernièrement, toutes nos herbes ont été infestées par de vilains pucerons. Le thym a été complètement décimé. Le basilique pourpre a bravement survécu et a prouvé être plus résistant que nous le pensions. Et le persil, sans doute le plus vaillant des trois, est à présent en voix de… fleurir !

Ne jamais abandonner, j’ai pensé. Oui, c’est bien là le message.

*Very delicate and verdant. I recently found a pair of teeny purple bell flowers on a climbing vine growing behind our garbage thing. They are essentially the ONLY things growing in our yard. A good omen, I think. Cheers, *Heather** heather
