Thursday photo prompt: Fragrant #writephoto

“Well, Nicholas, what do you think of my garden then, is it not a place of much beauty and serenity?”

“I agree my Lord, it is a delight to all the senses but I feel it may be lacking in one small degree.”

“Really, ” the old gentleman stopped and turning to his young companion, with a smile asked, “and how do you think it may be improved, I have had the advice of the best gardeners this county could provide.”

”Well if I might presume Sir, there are a few plants I could suggest that would be of great financial value and also benefit the populace.”

”In that case young Culpeper, might I propose you prepare a list of such and we shall endeavour to find a place for them.”

The rest as they say is history, as this is a true record of a conversation which lead to the compilation of the most famous herbal encyclopaedia ever written.
