I was first going to post on fennel alone .. I tried out some affects on Picasso .. blurry fuzzy thing .. I'm not totally sold on it but what the hey .. it is there now.
It all started when I saw the great post on fennel by "Greenwalks" Fabulous Fennel. I thought it was wonderful because I love this plant too .. and it grew into a mini tree for me ..I was thrilled .. even though it still lacked butterfly larva .. can't get into that whole episode with Curly Joe still fresh in my mind.
In any case .. when I thought of how wonderful the scent of anise was, I had to mention my Anise Hyssop as well. The bees adore this plant. It is well behaved (needs a little support .. heck, most of us do anyways) .. but tolerates dry crappy conditions and still looks pretty good. So I say HORRAY to Anise .. it is my well loved scent !
