Scarborough Fair

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

Scarborough Herbs

In an effort to combine my (modest) talents in gardening herbs, digital photography, and my newly acquired knowledge of Gimp. Presented in a six layer composite; the image includes all of the herbs: parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme (can you find them in the photo from my garden) as they were detailed in the timeless song ‘Scarborough Fair’ recorded and made famous by Simon and Garfunkel.  Unknown to many, the song was originally written during medieval times and was later overhauled and re-written by Paul Simon to include subtle lyrics which spoke of his opposition to the Vietnam War.
