Restore...Renew Week 2, Day 3:Go Green

Today we are going green.  We are going to the nursery.  When last have you been to the nursery?  In our busy lives going to a nursery is not very high on our priority list, but I have always experienced such calm whenever I go to one.  Just walking there through all the plants and flowers inspire me.  Today I want you to go there specifically to buy a herb.  Start a herb garden.  There are few things as nice as to use fresh herbs from your own garden and adding it to your home cooked meal.  Herbs also have many other uses than merely flavouring your food.  Rosemary, for instance, can help to improve blood circulation while Parsley is a good source of folic acid.  Sage has antiseptic qualities and Mint can help soothe stomach aches.  Oregano, a favourite in Italian dishes, has ant-bacterial properties and it is said that Thyme can help to lower blood pressure. So, there you have it, it is Thyme to do your bit for the environment!
