I love it when it's time for fresh flowers at the Apothecary. Early this morning I ventured out to the garden to see what it might be that I would pick for todays arrangement. The herbs are in full flower which means that there's plenty to choose from. The roses are at the end of their first flush so in my garden roses are few and far between, although this said there are always one or two blooms to pick.
Todays arrangement includes Lavender (Lavendula angustofolia), Catnip (Nepeta cataria), Yarrow (Achillea millefolium), Oreganum (Origanum vulgare), Rose Geranium (Pelargonium graveolen), and last but not least the beautiful pink Rose. This Rose has the most glorious true Rose aroma. I have no idea of it's name as it was inherited with our garden. If anyone knows it's name please let me know. The collective aroma of the flowering herbs and the rose is absolutely joyous and enough to lift anyones spirits.
Collectively these plants are used in Aromatherapy, Herbal Medicine and food. Having the joy of watching them grow brings me so much closer to them.
