There is something so sensual about spending a lazy afternoon at the Botanical Gardens with a slew of ten year olds.
Hopping rocks across the lily pond, stroking the lamb's ear, sniffing the rosemary and lemon verbena...
"Being in an herb garden makes me want to chew," says my daughter.
And softly, with nothing really in our mouths, we do.
