we were (and constantly are...) inspired by our green-thumb friends, and have made some additions to our sad little collection of plants. our only requirements: easy to care for and hearty. VERY hearty. and pretty, of course.
we officially chopped the basil. it made a valiant effort to survive the winter, but everything that lived was pretty droopy.
i'm kind of anxious about these stumpy remains... we'll see. it comes from a very long, wise line of basil.
