Who knew that flowering basil is so pretty as a cut flower. The wholesale flower delivery guy at the florist I work freelance for gave them to us. He said they didn't have much time left in them, but they smelled delicious. Oh the smell. They smell so wonderful. Delicious is the right word. I rescued them from their garbagey grave as clean up at the end of the day commenced. And the whole weekend my apartment has smelled like a fresh herb garden. And still does.
I love all things green. Succulent leaves, interesting textures, soft moss. I am a professional floral designer who has created a way to work artistically and still be home with my little girls. Fresh from the garden state, flores del sol.
