I would love to have a spice garden. I bet the smells emanating from the plants was divine!

I love these pictures. It's always hard to know what our spices were like originally. Thanks for sharing and increasing my knowledge!!

I hadn't realised pepper came from a tree! It's very interesting to see the trees these spices come from.

I'd love a garden like that! I love that curved tree!

What interesting plants! Nothing like those where I live. For some reason I thought cinnamon and nutmeg came from a bush and not a tree.

Those are all so very cool. Wouldn't it be great if cinnamon filled the air from that tree?

This is going to sound crazy, but I have often wondered where cinnamon comes from -- seriously.
Now I know.
Thank you.
These are great shots.
