  1. wow, how cool is that? I'm sure what they cultivated tells a lot about the life & times of the people who lived back then too.
    That is so neat.

  3. I've heard of "Our Lady's" this and "Our Lady's" that, but never Our Lady's Bedstraw.

    How do "they" know what was cultivated in the Middle Ages?

    A very interesting post that poses several interesting questions.

  6. Maybe you should have held off on buying that new mattress. Our Lady's Bedstraw is probably rather inexpensive!!!

    Can't wait to hear more about your trip:)

  11. We visited the Cloisters when we were in NY and I loved it. There was so much to see and so much beauty. The teens were kind of bored though. I'd love to go again, this time without the teens, haha!

  14. Wait. What? Our Lady's Bedstraw? WTF kind of bed is Our Lady sleeping in anyway?

    And I see you've gotten into botanical classifications! You are a woman of many talents.
