Ode to Herbs! Spring Mantel

Happy Monday Friends! Right up until I purchased several herbs and flowers to refresh my outdoor containers, we were having a very mild winter. Of course as soon as I bought them, we had our coldest temps in over 30 years! So I improvised and decided to create an early spring mantel to enjoy my plants indoors for now

My Ode to Herbs mantel is also inspired by the pretty herby puns I received for Christmas.

I have been waiting for the right opportunity to showcase these lovely gifts from Dear Firstborn...

...so I displayed them inside a tobacco basket with fresh and dried lavender.

Despite the previously mild weather, it's still on the early side to buy plants, so I was thrilled to find a few containers of lemon thyme.

I arranged the fresh plants in zinc and white-washed terracotta pots nestled in a chicken feeder tray.

Violas and pansies are such happy flowers!

  1. Hi Cecilia,

    I love your goodies from your son. I'm all about lavender. Can't wait for spring I use lemon thyme and regular thyme often cooking.

    I'm a huge Viola lover too.

  2. My husband and I were just talking about our herb garden today and I said we can't forget thyme! I'm really itching to begin planting but for us up North that won't be for quite a while:( Love your mantel! xo Kathleen
