I recently found a very sweet and simple way of introducing another hint of nature in my humble abode .
Whilst going for a walk with my young family in the middle of summer we picked some lovely looking berries, fresh lavender, and fun looking herbs.
I then decided to test how well they would keep in some glass containers I had.
As I kept some samples in the fresh air and some contained in the glass It very quickly became apparent that the berries were keeping much better in the jar. Now I have a mini collection with samples picked from my garden.
