Grass trimmed short between rectangular beds. Aromatic leaves, air scented by blossoms, tiny green leaves of the Thyme, Rosemary with dark green leaves and white central stripe growing on woody stems, sprawling Oregano with it's sweet pungent smell, Mint in it's clay pot reaching for the sun, Chives growing like grass with their round purple flowers on tall stems, Basil waves gaily in the summer breeze right next to the garlic to keep the aphids at bay. Combined together what music they make, each Italian and Greek dish an orchestra of flavour.
