WET WEDNESDAY? I WISH.

The monsoon has been returning to Arizona and there are rain predictions for my part of the state today and tomorrow. But I took a look at the radar predictions and, typically, while there are indications that there will be rain all around us . . it doesn't look like any of that necessary moisture will fall "on" us.

So I guess I'll have to use the hose once again to drop some water on SWMBO's new mint plant.


The plant sits in a pot right underneath the hose faucet so it gets a few drops whenever the hose is turned on or off and I spray some more on it when I'm filling the bird bath. So it appears to be doing well.


There's nothing quite like the wonderful smell of a freshly torn-off leaf and the taste of some diced-up in a fruit salad.


And then there are the words of a young woman poet named Lauren, whose work I found on the web.

"i was never a big fan of mint, but after you kissed me, with those sweet spearmint lips of yours, i was hooked."

Now that alone should make you want to start your own mint plant!

  1. Like the new header! Looks like rain! Smells like rain! Humidity for rain! I watered all the plants anyway.

  2. I particularly like mint in a salad with tomato and cucumbers. Ditto tabouli salad. And of course in some beverages. Spearmint lips is a nice concept though.

  3. We had mint growing in our backyard when I was a kid and I loved chewing it. Haven't done so in a long time.

  4. The Mint Growers of America should put you on their payroll. ;)
