Yarrow at the Colosseum?

Yarrow at the Colosseum?We were just looking through our photos from our trip to Italy earlier this month and have decided that perhaps we’ve become a little obsessive about plants. There were about 10 shots of what we initially thought was yarrow (Achillea millefolium) growing in the remains of a Colosseum wall until closer inspection revealed it to be some variety of mustard. Not to mention that it was way too early in the season for yarrow…

Thanks to all of you who patiently waited for us to return to process your orders. This has been the second time we have closed sunstoneherbs.com since going online in 2000 (the first being during the week we moved from New York to New Mexico).

We had a wonderful, relaxing time – lots of good food and lots of art – and are now ready to jump into the growing season. Here are some parting shots.
