Our gardens are in full swing as we speak, and we are spending a lot of our time in the afternoons picking and canning and freezing. I love that we are able to do this and feel so fortunate to be surrounded by nature where we live. To me, nature is such an expression of God’s beauty and creativity.
“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?” Job 12: 7-9
I love to bring nature inside and use it to decorate, especially in the kitchen. It’s free, it’s easy, and it’s beautiful!
Here’s what I have around the house right now:
Rosemary and basil snipped from my the cutting garden are gorgeous when they are bunched up and placed in a stemless wine glass, and a pile of tomatoes adds color to my kitchen window. I stacked some apples next to some sunflowers on the kitchen table for an almost-fall decoration.
Another plus to this: your herbs and produce are within easy reach, and they smell fabulous!
