    I found this forum while searching looking through the UBC website. I'm surprised I haven't come across this forum before but I'm glad I'm here.

    One of my favourite things to do is to putter around my garden. My passion is my herb garden. I tend to look at plants through the eyes of an herbalist...what can I use this for? My husband is the opposite and we balance each other out. Over the years I've learned to just enjoy a plant for the beauty it brings. When I'm not puttering around my herb garden, I'm either spinning, knitting, or elbows deep in washing fleece!

    Hi Lavender, Welcome to the Forums. Some herbs are also quite beautiful plants, so you can have beauty and use at one time. You spin wool I take it. Have you ever tried to make natural dyes from your herbs? I guess most of the good dye plants are no longer commonly grown now that we use synthetics.

    Enjoy the Forums!
