I can’t think of many places that have inspired me more than my herb garden in the Netherlands. It is a quiet place where I can go to get away from it all. When I first arrive it seems deserted but after only a few minutes on a bench in the back corner I notice all the creatures stirring, the birds singing and the last flowers of the season dancing in the wind.
Every season is different here, and each has its own unique appeal. Now that the leaves are falling it is the perfect place to reflect, even the weeds seem to have taken some time off! While there are some herbs in the garden I don’t adhere to any strict planting rules here, as long as there is something to enjoy throughout the year!
