73 and still gardening

Yerba Buena

It’s not everyday to find a bluebottle fly or bottlebee (Calliphora vomitoria) resting on the leaf of a peppermint. That moment I thought, what could it possibly want with the herb? or is it possible that the fly is aware that of the plant’s medicinal value? Hmm…

Anyway, I planted the Yerba Buena (Clinopodium douglasii) for ornamental and medicinal purposes.  And according to the DOH (Department Of Health), the peppermint belongs to the top ten list of Herbal Medicines in the Philippines.
