The other day I was washing dishes, and I looked out the window onto the back porch where I have some potted herbs on my patio. There was a little squirrel hanging out in my basil plant, living life and feeling good.
And I don’t blame him. That basil smells really good.

Basil does smell fabulous. That squirrel does look like he’s loving life! 🙂
I love that smell of basil, too! That squirrel was having a grand time.
