Herbs and spices make such a difference to our lives and perhaps basil is one of the better known herbs. I have to confess that this is the first time I had seen the flowers on this plant though. The white petals were delicately gauzy against the dark greeny purple aromatic leaves. Basil is such a summery, warm plant, filling my mind with memories of delicious pasta dishes and pesto eaten outside with friends on lazy, warm days. I hope these also lend a warm, sunny Mediterranean feel to the beginning of your week.
