As I have a lot to share with you all, I will stop rambling on for now and let’s get straight into our own virtual Herb Garden! Thanks to each and everyone of you who entered, the winner of the culinary lavender will be announced in the new July challenge next month. Karen

    Gorgeous post Karen. Such a wonderful archive of herb recipes! I’ve checked out a few of the blog links already and it’s lovely to be able to see so many inspiring entries. I’ll have to keep an eye out for the next collaboration. I’ve never joined any of the blogging link-ups… I think I need to change that! xx

    Going through this round-up has been absolute torture – it’s my fast day and I really should keep away from food blogs – especially yours. So many lovely things to eat Karen. I’ve definitely got my eye on that rose honey.
