  3. These photos are awesome! Thank you for letting me see how you used the Herbal Identification E-book! That is so cool! It looks so much like the classes I had over here! I especially like the pictures of the salve and the feast. Wow! You were ambitious. We didn't have such a large feast this last time we did the class. More like lazy stuff - dipping wild rhubarb in sugar, etc...LOL!
