I am an herbalist living in Western Oregon these days, having transplanted from NYState in 2005. Getting to know a whole new climate, meeting brand new plants, meeting well-known plants acting entirely differently and seeing the world through my grandchildren has been the greatest mid-life party I could have hoped for.

Writing is a pleasure. I think through my fingers and type as fast as I talk. To be able to illustrate my own stuff with my own photos only expands the joy, I’m lovin’ this.

I make my own products and teach online herb classes, all of which can be found at my web site  www.ladybarbara.net 

Thanks for coming to visit!  ~LadyB
