{Bay Window Patio with Potted Herbs}

We have been steadily adding potted plants and I also did order some special herbs such as Mentha piperita citrata, Lemon Grass, Spanish Thyme which also is called Cuban Oregano. 
This mint is supposed to be the one that fine restaurants use to decorate their desserts...
Here the patio is still empty but I love this photo because of the special light through the dogwood branches...
A nice place for hummingbirds to come to one of the feeders which is visible from our kitchen bay window.
The top photo was taken after 5:00 PM and the one below after 1:00 PM and the light is always changing!
Together with our Fiberglass Window Boxes it is a nice addition to the Bay Window Patio.
Lemon grass is standing tall already in its pot to the left.
Hope everything will grow well and that we can use it this season or next...
Do you also grow some herbs?

      You certainly are right about that; we all need our herbs for cooking! Thank you about the window, that is our favorite spot of the house. The sun is there early morning for breakfast and that makes one happy to start the day!

  3. I love your beautiful patio. Potted herbs make it look even more beautiful!

      Potted herbs are always very fun to watch as they grow and exciting to start using.
      We too never had success with growing catmint for consumption by any of our felines. Don't know why; maybe their daily diet does not call for any...?
      Hope your week went well so far. Today we drove back and forth to Atlanta for our shopping; first trip since early June. Also got a new battery for my silver guilder watch at Womble watch on Delk Rd. in Marietta... Just a bit of traffic jam when we left from Costco home by 2:30 PM but we got here in time for our 6 babies to feed them. They always welcome us on the driveway.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  10. My dear friend Mariette,
    Your window is beautiful and also the potted herbs. We are also grow lots of herbs, we have chives, thyme, tarragon, lemon balm, cilantro, basil, stevia, dill, oregano, parsley and lavender. We really love to cook with herbs and also we dried them and in the process the smell is incredible.
    Send you lots of hugs,
    Love,
    Laura <3

    1. Dearest Laura,
      This is one of our most favorite sides of the home as we can watch birds from here, the hummingbirds come very close to the window on that feeder. Also the acrobatic squirrels as they finish off the sunflower seeds every day... And sometimes we get to watch a chipmunk! Oh, your climate will be so much more rewarding for all your herbs but at least we do give it a try, small scale!
      Hugs to you,
      Mariette

  12. Such a pretty window, Mariette, with a lovely patio filled with sweet herbs. You have selected some beautiful herbs and equally beautiful pots to grow them in! I also grow herbs in half whiskey barrels and some in pots on the deck. I love to walk by them and pinch a leaf just for the beautiful scent.
    Hope you are staying cool! xo Hugs, Karen

    1. Dearest Karen,
      Thank you and we do enjoy our patio very much. The use for it is endless and these potted herbs are a great way for enjoying some fresh home grown herbs. Oh, your environment is so much better for any herb, plant or flower than ours and half whiskey barrels seem to be a great way to grow them in. Containing them a bit and also giving them their own special soil for thriving well. We love our Rosemary, however we have to dig up ours after it grew for more than 20 years, now it is not looking full enough anymore. But I could pinch year round scented sprigs off for adding to table decorations with flowers...
      Today was not bad at all but we were in Atlanta and that is more north and somewhat cooler than our area.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  16. Lieve Mariette,

    Het gefilterde zonlicht wat door het gebladerte schijnt is de meest natuurlijke daar kan geen zonnewering tegenop.
    En je kan vanuit de erker ook nog lekker genieten van wat er zich in de tuin afspeelt.
    Heb vanaf de dag hartzeer dat de gemeente het nodig vond om de grote Esdoorn te kappen die aan ons voortuintje stond en met zijn groene kruin vol gevederde bladeren voor schaduw zorgden in onze erker op zomerse dagen.
    Je hebt er goed aangedaan om de kruiden in grotere potten te planten dan hebben ze lekker veel ruimte en aarde om te groeien.Kruiden in de keuken zijn onmisbaar ook voor voor mij,kruiden waarvan je maar enkele takjes of blaadjes nodig heb in of op het gerecht knip ik zomers van kruidenpotten binnen handbereik waaronder tijm en rozemarijn.Dit jaar plantte ik vijf verschillende kruiden soorten,citroenmelisse,lavas,Marokkaanse munt,oregano en bieslook in oude zinken vuilnisbak die vol in de middagzon staat en nog nooit eerder groeiden mijn kruiden zo goed.
    Voor Thaise gerechten heb ik meestal hele grote bossen kruiden nodig zoals horapha(Thais bacilicum) en koriander en die koop is dan vers in de toko.
    En wat ik gisteren tijdens het tikken van deze reactie niet kon vermoeden is de lieve verkoopster uit die toko bij de vliegtuigramp om het leven gekomen.

    Hoop dat je binnenkort van je kruidenpotten kan knippen!!!

    Liefs,Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Goh zeg, je voorlaatste regel is eigenlijk net wat ik tegen Pieter zei. Met zoveel nederlandse slachtoffers moet het ons wel op een of meerdere manieren direkt raken. Dit is zoiets vreselijks!
      Ook die grote boom, dat is in mijn ogen ook een vorm van móórd!
      Lief je reaktie en ik kijk er echt naar uit om hiermee te kunnen werken; eigengekweekte verse kruiden!
      Liefs,
      Mariette
