New Herbs in the Herb Bed

I've added some new herbs to my herb bed.
Flat leaf (Italian) Parsley

Curly Leaf Parsley

Purple Basil
I really love the way this looks. I hope it tastes good too! I'm still looking for green basil. The stuff at the green house I bought this at didn't look too good so I passed it over.
Transplanted Volunteer Dill
I'm still searching for the basil, purple sage and summer savory and then this little bed will be filled. I planted some zinnias to fill the space that the herbs won't grow into this year. I will also have other herbs scattered amongst the perennial flowers. These are all things that deer are not supposed to eat. We will see.  It's a slow process putting in a new garden bed. We still haven't had time to buy the fence that will delineate the boundaries of the bed, but little by little I have added to the bed, moving perennials that  are in places they are no longer thriving in.

 The Allium I planted is in bloom now. What a cool plant! 
There is so much more that needs to be done, but I'm glad I've gotten most of the herbs in. I love cooking with fresh herbs.
