  1. Yay! Here comes spring & summer! I thought quite a few of these were great ideas to try. Love them in the baskets and crates. I liked the look in the mason jars too. Great ideas Sheila! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I’ve never grown herbs. One of my SIL’s grows an herb garden and these are some great ideas to do so in a fun way. I love the herbs grown in the baskets.

  3. Nothing beats growing your own herbs! It’s so liberating going out to take a snip of mint or rosemary or whatever to throw into your recipe. Then you have the yummy scent left on your hand afterwards. These container ideas are adorable.
