Herb Garden

So much is happening in the herb garden at the moment - it is such a joy, because every time I go up onto the roof there is something new to see. So, today, here are photos of two old friends opening their flowers and turning their faces towards the sun...





Top: Feverfew, Bottom: Yarrow

These flowers are beautiful. I love the pink yarrow!

I love feverfew and grow it in as many places as I can. The yarrow I have never seen in flower, isn't it pretty.

thank you, sandpiper .. must admit it was a big surprise to me when it turned out pink! a newer flowerhead has since opened which is pure white, as expected, so I'm not sure what happened .. I wish I understood more about these things.

hi cheryl! do you take feverfew for your migraine? I took a feverfew tablet daily for a while and they helped prevent mine (became less often and less severe). sadly this herb is contra-indicated for me at the moment. I think the traditional way is eat a fresh leaf a day (best in bread and butter because it can cause mouth ulcers). you probably know all this!!
