I am proud to say that I have spent some time in this front yard haven of ’erbs and there is some very fine work going on in the backyard too …

Awww thanks Harv.

Perhaps you’d like to come over and have another cup of herbal tea in the garden sometime?

I’ve grown many herbs throughout the years, but you seem to have a flair for the exotic and unusual, as well as medicinal. Outstanding documentation for medicinal uses of certain herbs. The garden photo with the hollyhocks and jerusalem sage… well, totally stellar. Great job! You’ve made some wonderful contributions to this fledgling garden site.

Thank you Mondomuse!
I’ve still got more to add.
I’ve been admiring your garden also.

Thanks a lot Mary.
I’ve just added more details on more herbs. Most of the descriptions of the Medicinal Properties come from www.botanical.com

Herb, thanks again for your comments and observations in my garden area. You recently mentioned your attempts at photographing the humming bird-like eastern spinebill. Here is a thought (I did this recently with success), why not load a video camera with a one hour tape and place it on a tripod aimed at the location where this bird hangs out. Turn the camera on, and step away. Chances are you will catch a glimpse of this bird, and some other wildlife in the process. Then, you can take still images from the footage and post them here. I will be posting some hummingbird pics soon, and ya know it makes one wonder if Folia might want to accommodate wildlife and insect photos as well.

Thats a great idea Mondomuse! Unfortunately I don’t have a video camera but I do have video capability on my little point and shoot Sanyo Xacti though so I’ll give it a go on that.

Hey Ark, I was only just saying on the forum ‘Wishlist’ topic that I can’t wait to share herbs with others. Lets wait a couple of weeks until that kicks in and we’ll do a swap to test it out eh?

Spectacular garden. Well presented. Beautifully done. I look forward to going though it in detail.

Nicely done and really useful. I’ll have to keep an eye on this.

Posted on 26 Oct 07 (over 7 years ago)

Thanks Hank and Greerish. You are both welcome to hang out in my garden anytime. I’ll be here pottering away somewhere.

Hi there
Did you get around to the flat leaf parsley? Thanks for your comment on my herb garden – sadly this isn’t going well but your lovely garden gives me good cause for hope. I will think about re-planting in the spring and will perhaps be a bit more detailed in making choices.

Posted on 05 Nov 07 (over 7 years ago)

Hi Linda Mae, Well here is the weird thing. I noticed a flat leaf parsley has magically just popped up in the garden. Must be a stray seed from last year or from the compost. I often have things sprouting up uninvited and its great when its herbs and not weeds.

Posted on 05 Nov 07 (over 7 years ago)

How are you doing? I have begun again with more success this year and was thinking of you and your lovely garden and hope that you have not lost too many plants in the drought through the summer.

Posted on 02 May 08 (about 7 years ago)

Wow. I am in awe of your huge collection of herbs.

Absolutely amazing!

Posted on 16 Aug 08 (almost 7 years ago)

Hi Linda, I did loose a fair bit but have started again now. I have another water tank and will get a third soon to stave off the dry times during this year’s summer. I’ll be putting more effort in to ‘drought-proofing’ the garden too.

Thanks Tanya!
