I adore Basil. It's an herb, not a person. If they would make a perfume from it, I'd wear it. Besides being yummy in all of Italian food, and salads too, Pesto is made with Basil! Yum! Next time you go to the Spaghetti Factory, ask for their Creamy Pesto salad dressing in which to dip your bread. It's supremely delicious!
So here is just a little update with a photo of 2 kinds of Basil I have growing. Look how cute the Boxwood Basil is! It's got tiny leaves but the same doings as regular Basil.
