making it simple; smelling and tasting

I do believe I might just have the best smelling weed/scrub trash can, those big plastic wheely things the city provides, around these parts. The reason being attributed to the recent activity of the gathering, harvesting, and pruning of my herb beds. I have harvested several bunches of organo and sage to dry, then I undertook the cutting back of my lavender plants. Guess where all the extras end up?

Drinking water is a must for ladies on these hot, humid summer days. 
Looking to add a little extra zing this summer, I do believe this combination is my best so far. I throw in a few basil leaves, fill a two quart jar with water and squeeze in a bit of fresh lime juice. All throughout the day I keep refreshed drinking this water until the pitcher is empty. 
 Two quarts daily made simpler.

I need to do the same thing to my herb garden. My sage is taking over!

I have never tried basil in water, it sounds really good. I feel so much better when I am well hydrated. It really makes a difference.

You are so classy... I thought so already, now I'm over the top impressed. A sweet smelling debris can? Yes!
