Book Review : From Net Galley
I was pleased to get an early copy of this stunning book. The pictures are an inspiration in it’s own way. After reading this book I went out and replanned my herb and medicine garden. I have always been interested in using herbs and flowers in crafts and beauty products but Now I am inspired to do more. And the recipes will be a great addition to my collections of teas,salves, and more. I cant wait for the weather changes and i can get in the garden. I have some new plants and seeds to try…. Lisa
