Thank You Roxana

Inspiration comes in many forms and I want to give a great big thank you to perfumer Roxana Villa of Illuminated Perfume. I had been reading Roxana's blog and commented on one of her posts. Just out of a casual exchange she has inspired me to learn more about native plants where I live. All I can say is that what I've learned so far is FASCINATING and EXCITING!

A Coincidence?
A few weeks ago as I was shopping for herbs to plant in my mini garden (lol), I came across Bee Balm. I had never heard of it before and decided to purchase one plant. This was all before my exchange with Roxana. Days later after reading Roxana's response to my comment, I went to the library to check out books on native plants of Michigan and lo and behold, Bee Balm is a native. How cool is that? Hmmm...just a coincidence?

I like all kinds of herbs..Sometimes, I do pretty good with them, but most of the time..well, lets just say, they don't call me "black thumb" for nothing..

LOL I carried that title also. I have gotten much better over the years though. My herbs seem to do well if I leave them alone LOL.

I love when something seemingly random sparks a new inspiration like that :]
