I have all similar blooms in my garden. Don't you just love the scent from the lavender as you brush past it. I've been pulling/trimming some lemon balm this afternoon and enjoyed the lovely aroma.

More like the red dreadlocks society! :)

The bronze fennel is a bit weedy, but I like it anyway. The one thing I hate is that the babies blend in so well with my fine-textured mulch that they are often at least 6 inches tall before I notice the darn things. But it's hard to complain when pulling weeds that smell yummy.

crafty gardener, you reminded me I had better cut some lemon balm to dry before it all goes to seed!!

Kim, I often don't realize I have pulled a wanted plant's seedlings instead of a week until I smell the fragrance on my hands...No worries, though. Like bronze fennel, many wanted plants are also prolific at throwing seeds around!

Hannele, do you collect herbs from the wild too? I often collect red clover, linden flowers, nettle and the like from the wild.

Sorry, Kim. I think I deleted your comment about the Monarda Red Hat Society by mistake. Could you re-send it?
