I like to pinch off the tiny dried seeds and crunch them between my teeth. For such a small granule, you get a lot of licorice flavor.
These are all considered 'weeds', which I guess means they aren't valued by some people. But I think they have a beauty all their own.
This one is a shrub along the walk-way at work, so it is watered. But I love the way the leaves are turning purple on the end of each stalk.

Well sometimes all the world seems like a garden if you just look.
