Fun! I have to admit I went looking to see if you had all 4 that are mentioned in “Scarborough Fair”: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme. I love that song. Though it is sad, it seems to me it’s also a moving on song with no looking back, so in some ways it is an optimistic song too.
I had them last year-the 4, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. sage and rosemary are perennials, parsley a bi-annual. My thyme died last year and I had to replace it, so it may be an annual. I used to sing that song to my kids as the went to sleep at night-reminded me of my long ago ancestors across the pond. I could actually sing it fairly well, though my voice is not so great. Glad you noticed the Scarborough Fair theme…beebee
