Tis the Basket Season~

I'm the dedicated "Basket-Maker" at the shop. Both the Herbarium and Crow's Nest shop. I've been making gift baskets for years & love it! Each one is unique and usually has its own challenges. Most of the time I'm in the back room, a frenzy of tissue, ribbon & blow dryer in hand, getting the basket just right while the customer is browsing the shop :)

I Love my Job :)

Scented Geranium Harvest

I harvested the last of the Rose Geraniums!

All this from only 2 plants. I got 7 large bunches hung in the barn. When they're dried I'll strip the leaves and store them for my Geranium Potpourri.
Love, Love, Love Scented Geraniums :)
