Beautiful Basil

June 6, 2011

Walking the Market on Saturday morning before I open the shop has become part of my routine. Visual inspiration is abound. The rows and rows of fruits and vegetables, as well as bucket after bucket of fresh flowers. It is a great way to wake up the senses.

This past Saturday I was taken by the incredibly fresh, stunningly beautiful basil. I bought 2 bunches and put them in a large green drinking glass and put it on the ledge right next to store computer that we use at the check out stand. It was a visual treat all day for both my customers and myself, plus the scent was glorious.
