All about Mint

Order  "Mint Original Watercolor Painting"
Plants are so magical, especially the herbal plants. I am amazed by the various kinds of fragrant they carry.

In searching of  some healthy snack for my 4 year old, I come across the mint plant and some healthy snacks and drinks it can make. I planted some in my garden from cut out that I bought from supermarket that are meat for cooking. I just insert them into port soil and magically they grow.

Mint in Balcony
Now they thrive in my balcony. They need only a lot of water and sunshine.
Afternoon Snack
This is a healthy, delicious and easy to make afternoon snack with oat cracker, low fat high calcium cream cheese and mint. The strong taste of the peppermint I pick from the balcony somehow disappear when mixed with cheese. The mint makes cheese very fresh and not so sticky in your mouth. My daughter loves it.
Order "Mint in Port Original Water Color Painting"
 They are also so pretty to paint with bluish green, golden yellow and dark purple stems . I painted two today.
