Just had to share with you all because only you folks will understand how happy this makes me…I had my 6 year old grand-daughter over yesterday and the weather was calling for a light frost last night so I had her help me pull in some of my more tender herbs growing in pots.
Well of course we had to pinch and sniff…right? So the first plant was eucalyptus…and I asked her to repeat it back. She now knows this plant as eucakisses…she pinched and sniffed..and says,
‘Grammy it smells like medicine…delicious!’
Next on the agenda was my lavender, same thing, pinch and sniff…and ohhhh she loved it!
Of course when daddy picked her up, she had to let him know what each plant was, have him rub/roll in his own hands and sniff….my budding little herbalist…and yes, she especially loved the eucakisses.
