An Herb Wreath & Watermelon Salad

The herbs are all blooming in the garden! I wanted to make an herb wreath this spring…using fresh herbs. I’ve had a few favorite herb wreaths pinned to my Garden Pinterest Board for a while…and finally had a chance to make one while Amy from Tennessee was here :)

Herbs 6

So, we gathered these herbs: sage, rosemary, and Spanish lavender. Then we added some silver mound…which isn’t an herb, but made for a pretty addition.

Herbs 1

 We used the smallest available grapevine wreath, which I already had on hand. We used some twine, floral tape, and floral pins.

Herbs 3

We gathered the bundles of each herb, twisted the ends with floral tape, and attached each bundle with the pins.

Sage first.

Herbs 4

Rosemary next, then lavender.

Herbs 5

And last, we added silver mound.

Herbs 9

There are so many uses for fresh herbs…a wreath is just one. And when it’s dried, we can still use the herbs.

I also wanted to share this Watermelon Feta Salad with you. It’s delicious.

This salad makes a fabulous side dish with any dinner! You’ll love it! I found the recipe in the book Bread & Wine, by Shauna Niequist. You can find the recipe HERE.

I hope you are having a fabulous week! Let me know if you try making the herb wreath, or the salad. I’d love to see how it turns out for you :)

Blessings
