Last Year we planted a few Lemon Balm in the back yard, they grow so fast that we had to start using it in different things. I did fresh tea, add ice and sometimes a little Honey or sugar. We love it. Then I used to decorate around the house and look great, the leaves have a nice green color that will go anywhere. If you cut them put it inmediatedly in water to keep them firm. This plant have many benefits, is used as a flavouring in ice cream, with fruits and candies, in the evenings make you feel relax if you have trouble sleeping. The crushed leaves, when rubbed on the skin, are used as a repellant for insects.Realesed a fresh citrus scent when rubbed, is bushy all year long, what else can I said? this I had learned from my Sister who cultivate the plant in her garden also.
The miniature roses bush was in bloom when the Winter started, I hope it will comeback this year, just wanted to share that picture with all of you.
