Every so often he will give the Yahoo! group for the The Essential Herbal a taste of the beauty growing in his garden, and we are astounded.

Take a moment or two to visit Gary's garden. You'll be glad you did!

Stay tuned, we'll be off in another direction soon!

Simply wonderful, Gary! I only wish there were captions with the herbs especially as the photos are so beautiful and up close, they would be excellent field guides for identifying the plants. I'm fairly new to herbs, and there were many I didn't recognize, but I want to know more about all of them!

Very nice Gary, the slideshow was fun to watch and I love the clarity of the pictures. I especially thought the azalea was amazing.
Thanks again

Gorgeous, Gary! Good thing I was too busy taking pics of my garden when Tina posted this, or I'd never have had the courage to send mine in!!! Thank you!
