Hello everyone, sorry I have been away for a while, does anyone have a particular herb they would like to see on here?  Also I finally got Paul Beyerl's Master Book of Herbalism, one of my grove mates got it for me at Yule :),  Anyway I will be reading it a bit now and hopefully will get an idea about what I want to do a write up on next. 

Sláinte !

Awesome now all i need to do is borrow my sweeties camera and take tons of pictures! thank you very much! i just saw some American nightshade on side of road two houses down from me! yeah i love collecting the berries. i put them in small bottles with oils for divination that are topically safe once diluted in a base for my own flying oil. i use it very sparingly and only topically. The American nightshade is way less poison than the European type. Are you good at trees too? i really want to know what trees are in my yard. Anyway thanks again i will talk to my honey tonight about the camera!

Greenville shouldn't be to far off from Arkansas on the types of plants.  If you have specific ones you would like to know about post a picture and we will see if we can figure it out.

Hi good info so far on here. i want to be able to identify the plants that grow wild in my area and i know very little because i am new the area i live in. i have identified Dandelion, Sorel (of some kind),  Polk, and wild Garlic but there is so much growing around here it is amazing. I just know there are good things close at hand. Oh wisteria and violets everywhere. Mamy mentions of Peterson's guide books need to get one for this area. Pictures of any plants are awesome!

hey all! i am a Pictish Druid, a type of "wild druid" (draoi fiain) so much of my religion/lifestyle involves hunting and gathering. i live in a very rural area with wilderness all around me. i have been using the wild plants here for food and medicine for years now. guess i will have to start bringing a camera! glad to be a part of your group.

I also went to my local bookstore and had them order me a book for my region. It's called Medicinal herbs of the Pacific West. I would bet they make one for every part of the country.

I have Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs. It has drawings but no actual pictures. Copyright 1985 and 2000 by his estate. sixteenth printing 2008

yeah I have Cunningham's book which is a great resource in how to do things but no pictures!! lol (horrible!) thanks guys :) I'll look into the other sources

Also, Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs is a good one.  It has drawings not actual pictures but they are pretty good representations.  I don't have the book so I am not sure about pictures but Paul Beyerl's, A Master Book of Herbalism, gets a lot of praise as an excellent source.
