Mid April Garden
It rained again today. The garden just adores the Spring rains. Here are some pictures I took this evening. Pictured left to right: Self Heal (Prunella Vulgaris), Violet, and a portion of the herb and rose garden. In the foreground of the garden there is thyme, basil, lavender and of course roses. I am cultivating about 18 antique roses right now. This is my first hand at cultivating self heal and violets. Both are very nutritive and healing for the skin. Violet leaves are high in vitamin K and I'm developing a way to utilize this heart leafed plant into a personal care product.
