Day 45 ~ One Year, One Nose
Fat leaf Italian basil!
Can you say bruschetta? Oh, how I adore the scent of basil. It is the summer's herb -- it loves tomatoes and oregano and zucchini and artichokes and butter -- mmmmm!
My sweet basil died. I had a brief but moving ceremony for it when it was mulched, then went right on out and bought a hardy Italian basil.
Basil is such a lovely scent -- spicy and green and pungent with peppery notes. Crushing its leaves releases such a perfume, so fragrant, so mouth-watering, so -- bruschetta. Forgive me my one-track mind.
Basil has that wow factor, y'know? Eye-popping, up-yer-nose, slap across the cheek spicy green.
