  1. What fun for the adventurous QHs….the fennel forest looks like an out of this world creation from a doll’s eyes with a human perspective.

  2. oh such fun pics. I have grown bronze fennel in the flower bed before. Never tried putting the umbrels in water for a drink. Will put that in my garden book for next year!! thanks.

  3. You and your photographer make the most wonderful, colorful, and educational stories. Thank you. I am amazed at the efforts you give to this blog everyday.
    Thank you,

    • Thanks! Mostly it is me taking the photos, but I admit that when the other guy lends a hand the results are pretty gorgeous. I took all the pictures in this blog, but he was very helpful with advice and setting up, and post-production of the “flavour” image.
