The oregano and sage in my June garden recently looked like this:
They were seriously overgrown, and were taking over my poor parsley plants you probably can't see in the above image. That was a good thing for a while, since the birds were sharpening their beaks on the parsley, and the oregano and sage hid them for a while so they could get established. But I really needed to cut them back. Problem--I don't use a lot of sage and already have some from last year, and I wasn't ready yet to dry another bunch of oregano. My friend Lori gave me a suggestion--herbs as centerpieces!
Now, I'm not a natural flower arranger. I got some Mason jars--also Lori's suggestion--and stuffed some sage and oregano in them. One jar ended up on our fireplace mantel:
And the other jar ended up on our spacious kitchen/breakfast counter:
They're free, and I don't have to store them when I'm done--just throw them away when they wilt. And I can simply go pick some more. And they're pretty to boot! I'll take that any time. :)
