Liturgical Herb Gardens
I know the serenity one can find in a garden or greenhouse and it is this feeling of calmness and refreshment that drive many to landscape their yards. The herbs have such a historical context to religion and weddings that it's not unusual to find liturgical gardens around churches and seminaries. Our local Wake Forest resident, Wayne Pratt has an interesting article written on the subject here. Knowing the naming of many herbs corresponde to Biblical reference makes his article even more interesting to me.
