kyricom: Oh Geez.... how many shots of pot are we going to have to endure? ( 5 years and 2454 days ago )
Contest Moderator: None Kyricom. Even though marijuana is technically an herb, the controversy that inevitably surrounds it makes it inappropriate for a family friendly website like Pxleyes. Because of that, entries depicting marijuana in any form will be removed. ( 5 years and 2454 days ago )
friiskiwi: Could we please have a clarification of 'herbs'. We seem to get a lot of lovely photos of flowers, which as far as I can see are not herbs. ( 5 years and 2453 days ago )
Momof4boyoboys: well I am not sure if "herbs" in a different language means flowers....but, I had Not intended it to include "garden flowers" although some herbs have flowers. I thought of the subject as I was potting my herb and vegetable garden...so I thought it would be clear, but maybe it is confusing. There are herbs we eat and herbs used for medicine and herbs we dry...so your call MODS on all the flower stuff. ( 5 years and 2453 days ago )

mdsmphoto: herbs have a variety of uses including culinary, medicinal, or in some cases even spiritual usage. General usage differs between culinary herbs and medicinal herbs. In medicinal or spiritual use any of the parts of the plant might be considered "herbs", including leaves, roots, flowers, seeds, resin, root bark, inner bark (cambium), berries and sometimes the pericarp or other portions of the plant.

CrystleClear: i guess i wont vote in this contest...and where are the mods at? dont they see half of these photos are off topic? if i vote how i want to vote in this contest i will mess up my vote power. ( 5 years and 2452 days ago )
rbsgrl: There are currently only two photos that may or may not be an herb. I think we need to give the authors a chance to explain if they are herbs or not first. ( 5 years and 2452 days ago )
rbsgrl: It would be helpful if the author gave the name of the herb so we can look it up. There are thousands of herbs, only a few of which we are familiar with. As far as the flowering type, you can get alot of information just by googling Flowering Herbs. There are hundreds of them. Here are just a few sites you may want to check out:
