“All the things of the wild have their proper uses. Only misuse makes them evil.” ~ Brother Cadfael
(One Corpse Too Many by Ellis Peters)
Recently I have found myself lost in the medieval world of Brother Cadfael and his tales of bravery, and kindness while in the pursuit of justice around the enclave of Shrewsbury Abbey.
And I have been particularly enticed by the images of his delightful ‘Herbarium’ in the BBC adaptation which stars the wonderfully mesmeric Sir Derek Jacobi as Brother Cadfael.
For having fallen in love with the vision of Cadfael’s Herbarium with its charming thatched roof, an interior of stone flagged floors with pots of healing potions all bubbling away on the huge and welcoming fire and masses of dried herbs hanging from the rafters…
… I am now making plans to create my own unique Herbarium!
More details to follow soon…. I promise!
