I don't know why it chose this picture to share, but to give credit where due, it's from Amazon...I have some of my own photos on the actual page :-)
The annual National Cherry Blossom Festival includes a parade and the presentation of the Cherry Blossom Queen. Learn what not to do by our funny unexpected experience.

Is the lucky Shamrock from seeds or a bulb? How do they differ from Clovers? Can you find the four leaf clover?
Growing Shamrocks is a fun and easy project to do with the children, or for your own pleasure to decorate for St. Patrick's Day or add to the garden.

Licorice Root - Use Glycyrrhiza glabra with Caution
One of the harder lessons I learned in my early days of suggesting
herbs for medicinal use was with a dear lady that had her blood pressure
under control. She had asked me to get something for her that I had
used successfully for a health problem, and I ...

Soothing Yarrow Thanks to Alkaloid achillein
I have enjoyed Yarrow as a pretty plant in my garden, and have come across
it in the wild during "herb walks" that I used to organize. It is not hard to grow, and spreads
if it is happy in it's location. Though native of the Western United
States, it can...

A Burn Remedy You Can Eat
Once when cooking in my kitchen, I took the cover off a casserole and got a steam burn on the tender skin inside of my wrist. For 5 hours I had an ice pack on it, taking it off now and then to see if the pain had stopped, and it hadn't. It was getting close...

Spirulina - Herb from the Water
This may not be something you'll grow in your herb garden this year, in fact, it's not necessarily an herb...but it's green and it grows, so it has my attention. It's nutritional qualities are well known by many. The picture is not an attractive one, it loo...

Work
Occupation
I am a freelance writer, writing for myself and for others is what I love to do. I maintain my 15+ year old website, happynutritionist.com, and own several blogs. I have been an author on Squidoo for over 5 years, occasionally write on Wizzley, and my most recent passion is Bubblews. When I am not writing, you'll probably find me sifting through antique letters, postcards, photos and ephemera for pleasure and looking for treasures to sell on eBay at claudias_corner_auctions, crocheting, or outdoors enjoying nature.
