Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme

 

I love fall. It means crisp days, cooler weather, and relaxing in front of the wood stove with good book and a mug of chai tea. There’s something comforting about the idea of the year winding down and getting ready to settle in for the winter.

 

It also means the garden I’ve enjoyed all summer will soon be a thing of the past, at least for the next few months. I’ll miss the fresh tomatoes, the fresh-picked salad greens, the bright, splashy colors of marigolds, sweet William, and cosmos.

I admit it—I’m a history junkie. If you’ve read many of my books, you already know about my love of Old West history, but after doing some research on my family background, I’ve developed a fascination with English history as well.
