This is a Thai Basil. It was given to me by one of my California soul sisters. I thought I had murdered it the first time I saw it in this state. It's a rather amazing plant in that it can look completely dead but... start watering it and it springs back to life.
This time, it wasn't a lack of water but some nights in the upper twenties we had before Christmas.
There is a hint of green here and there... she's still in there, waiting. I can already taste the tomato and mozzarella salads I love to serve with these leaves!
