One of the joys I get from my French home is the herb garden. I just love picking and cooking with fresh herbs, it makes me feel quite bucolic when I go round snipping the different plants and dodging the bees.
Yesterday I made a sardine bruschetta with onion marmalade and a garlicky herb dressing. The recipe called for a handful of parsley but both my parsley plants are looking rather sparse at the moment so I used a mixture of sage, chives, tarragon, lemon balm and lemon thyme. It worked fine for the dressing.

Today I picked some chive flowers to sprinkle over our salad lunch. It gives the salad a slight oniony flavour and looks pretty too.
