Many people think herbs are just plain and sometimes ugly looking plants. I am here to educate them. Most herbs are very pretty and their blooms are bright and colorful. Just like most flowers, herbs can be plain and dull looking plants when they are not blooming. However, if you want to use and harvest the herbs most require that you harvest them before they bloom, which means many herb owners never see what their herbs look like in bloom. This seems to have lead to the idea that herbs are plain and dull looking plants. Well no more! I have provided pictures of some of the most common herbs, some blooming and some not to show the beauty herbs can have if given the chance.
