Herbs, herbs, fresh herbs
I'm really into herb gardens at the moment. I have one (pictured with pots) but I keep asking Keith if we can build a "real" herb garden like the one at The Herb Farm in Woodinville Washington. This place is sweet. It's what most romantic domesticated types dream of. Fresh herbs, local ingredients from the Pacific Northwest, pot belly pigs. And although they have a great neighbouring boutique hotel, the Willows Lodge (which is where we stayed when I ventured upon it) they also have a guest house. It's one of the most celebrated restaurants in the US and it all started with a few chives. Zagat says it will be the best 4-5 hours you will spend in your life. It's definately on my bucket list.
