Mother's Day is around the corner, and when I inquired as to what my own mother would like (besides, of course, a nice meal and a day off), she said she's been looking for a pretty wreath. An herb wreath is one of those gifts that keeps on giving — it's beautiful, fragrant, and supplies dried herbs for cooking for months. Here are three I think are lovely — and quite likely worthy of my own lovely mother.
This first wreath goes a little behind the usual simplicity of herb wreaths, with broomcorn and other pretty things tucked in. I'm sure it smells fantastic.
This is a classic herb wreath with a ton of bay leaves and those lively chili peppers too. A wreath for cooking with!
One more lavender wreath — probably more for decor than for cooking, but it would certainly bring in the scent of the garden.
