Outdoor Wednesday

I have see Outdoor Wednesday linked at quite a few blogs and have visited Susan's blog, Southern Dreamer several times. But, I have never link up. I am guilty of not taking the time to step back and enjoy something that makes me smile.

Since today was a truly beautiful day outside, I decided to take a picture of one of our oak barrels that is filled with flowers, basil and apple mint. I figured I better take a picture before the cooler weather comes in.

Apple mint is new to us this year. I am so glad we planted it. Not only is the scent of it awesome, and the flavor is wonderful in making homemade herbal teas but, the plant itself is a beautiful vine plant that works great in planters. It should come up next year even fuller.
