Summer – the kids are around all the time, the weather plays nice and sometimes stormy, the garden is growing, the quails and hens are laying massive amounts of eggs and I’m collecting herbs to dry for tea season.

This wonderful and huge lavender bush of my grandma’s given me a share of blossoms. They smells so strong and rich!

Below are drying narrow-leaf plantain and mullein. This is the first time I found mullein (only 1 huge and a small plant) and picked the flowers. Picking the flowers was almost like the plant gave them to me freely, it was so easy to take them. The mullein is a plant I have read about long ago and since it’s a herb for the respiratory system, which is a weak spot for me and my family, I’m so glad I found this beautiful plant here at our new home. I hope I can take some seeds and spread them in the garden for a higher yield next year.
