Place a handful of this pretty potpourri­ in a fabric pouch, tie it with a ribbon and tuck in a sprig of fresh thyme (for fairy viewing).

  • ½ cup dried mint leaves
  • ¼ cup dried thyme
  • 1/3 cup dried rosemary
  • A few drops each of essential oils of lavender, thyme and bergamot
  • Dried flower petals (scented pelar­gonium or rose)
  1. Mix all the ingredients.
  2. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.

For many years, Caroline Glass has held Midsummer’s Eve celebrations in her garden in ­Philomath, Oregon.
