Sweet Annie at The Farm

Two things that I cannot grow are nice lawn grass (who cares, it just has to be cut) and Sweet Annie.  Every year I buy seeds and plant it.  It never comes up .

These lush plants were growing when we visited The Farm this month.  I understand that it has to be harvested   precisely at a certain stage.  I don't think I will ever have to worry about that.

Have a fun Saturday everyone.

It does smell so good. It's been years, but we grew some here at one time. It didn't last though. I'd almost forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder. Hope your Saturday is a super one!

Good Morning Peggy Sweetie...
I love, Love, LOVE sweet annie, and the smell is so gorgeous. I have never tried myself, it would probably burn up like everything else has here in the desert this year. It is a miracle anything has survived at all.

I sometimes wish my grass didn't grow either, we have tiff around the pool and I have to mow it year round. It doesn't die out, and while it is green and beautiful, it sure does give me pains throughout the year.

I hope you have a gorgeous Sunday sweet friend. Thank you so much for the love and warmth given during my loss of our dear Rasha. I miss her bark horribly. It was so deep and loud, and I knew there was something out there by her bark. Of course her wet nose nudges each morning were the best. She gave me unconditional love. She was a rescued rottie at the age of 6 months and we had her 12 years, but even so just not long enough. Never enough time.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Peggy, I try to always get some sweet annie when we go to the Earth festival down the road. I hang it in the basement....once it dries, I may even crush some on the cement floor and sweep it around to make a nice fragrance. I have no clue as to how to grow it either. Smiles, Susie
