Lesson 1014 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks


It is the destiny of mint to be crushed.

Waverly Lewis Root


Spent the day at the State Capital in Concord attending Legislative Leadership Training. When I got home, I took a walk around our yard and while I didn’t find *any* flowers – not even a bud – I did find the perennial mint that grows in the shaded corner of our yard had returned.

Which, of course, means that we’ll be having pasta with peas and mint in a cream sauce this weekend.

Not a bad way to celebrate the beginning of spring.


 Be safe and see you all next week.

  1. Growing up in NH, we had wild mint growing by the back step. Lovely smell, lovely memories. Thanks, Wendy! (Our spring is coming slowly as well. Feels like March.)

  2. I like this. Does it smell while it’s growing? I need to look into it more, if it grows well in the shade I have flowerbeds in my front yard that get next to no sunlight, I should plant some. Either something like that or I’m going to start growing moss.

  3. Vi Simplicio

    May I have recipe for pasta with peas in mint sauce. Kindest regards. Shingalo at barx69ranch
