Not only does garlic taste good, it cures baldness and tennis elbow, too."

 I wish it cured baldness.
Maybe if I rubbed it on my head twice a day.

by the refined essence of this mystically attractive bulb."

I love all your photos, so beautifully taken! Garlic is a must have in my cooking too, always together with onions.

Hi Hon :)

Goodness, this is just wonderful. It's such a pretty blossom, almost the same shape as Lavender. I really like all the photos, especially against the black background. The last one, in the net, has such texture to it. I can almost feel it. It's tempting to reach up and touch the net! Well done! Both you and Jama really captured the assignment quite nicely! As always, thank you for your participation!

Have a safe and relaxing holiday.
