How decorative are herbs and vegetables
Herbs not only have their culinary uses. They are s-o-o decorative. On the left is a bunch of silver beet - sometimes called spinach or chard - and parsley of the curly variety from my herb garden and sitting on the kitchen bench in a galvanised metal can which herself painted antique white. On the right is a spectacular bunch of Italian flat-leafed parsley. This turned into quite a huge bush/wannabe tree in one of my wheelbarrows. It lasted forever and eventually turned to flower and seed. The picture shows it with its yellow flowers.
