Juice taken from the leaves of borage and made into a syrup,

with sugar and honey expels melancholy and sadness,

clarifies the blood and comforts the heart.

    1. Yes, I just enjoy the flowers! The plant is kinda floppy! When it’s done blooming I pull it up, but they come back next year. My initial plan for my garden, was a huge herb garden…I have since changed my garden to a sensible kitchen garden! At least what makes sense to me! 🙂

  1. Borage and feverfew happily “show up” to visit throughout my garden – they are the most welcome guests!
