Happy herb girl

Lamb's Ear is the softest plant ever. I love stroking its leaves and was very happy to do so at the herb shop we visited today.

I didn't buy any, though. Instead I picked up parsely, sage, rosemary, thyme, margoram, basil, shiso, lemon balm, tarragon, wild strawberry, lettuce, yarrow, lavender, and eucalyptus. I would have purchased more, but I'm not sure I have enough pots or space to plant everything.

This little garden shop in tucked away in Harajuku--right next to the Yahoo Cafe and around the corner from Fujimamas but I never remember what it's called--is the city's best source for all sorts of medicinal and cooking herbs, ornamental grasses and quirky garden plants.

As soon as I have time tomorrow, I will be planting these in our little niwa off the living room. This summer's kitchen garden!

That's fabulous! I wish I knew where to purchase those plants up here (in Sapporo). We couldn't find any herbs. Instead we have these little planters that we're using to try to germinate some tomato plants and some spinach. It's exciting though - every day they seem to grow a little more!

That is a fantastic plant store - I know it well. Did you stop in the cafe for afternoon tea and wander upstairs to the curios store?? Great hanging single stem vases that look like they are hand blown glass. We should drop in together for a cleansing herbal tea one day.. "Far from the Madding Crowd" (sic)

I love lamb's ear. I used to have some, but it died off. Silvermound is really soft too. I planted some of that last summer and I was happy to see it coming back.
