Garden of Beauty and Wisdom

 

Garden of Beauty and Wisdom by Marit Cooper

Another design inspired by medieval illuminated manuscripts and herbals. Belladonna (the herb with black berries) is one of the most toxic plants found but was still used in medicine. I included it because it was also used by ladies to dilate the pupils of their eyes to make them look more attractive and seductive. Borage for cheerfulness and a calm and balanced mind. Sage for wisdom. Red clover and cornflower are still used in herbal teas and remedies although I have heard that cornflower may have adverse side effects so I do not recommend it. Foxglove is another toxic plant that is still used in heart medicine.
