I think @Herbster should signal when he is tired of the herb jokes, that thyme might be nearer than we think…
Spoken like a true sage.
I’ll only be impressed if you can come up with a pun on “lemon verbena”. Otherwise you’re just a couple of dillettantes.
this sounds like a challenge for the Society’s pun supremo, @Ewan
I personally was going to ask @Herbster whether you think this should continue, oregano put a stop to it?
These kinds of pun-offs are mint to go on and on…
Keep 'em Cumin
The Emperor has no cloves!
My apologies to all in advance
Well, as the French almost say: A Lemon Verbena Trumpet
("Allez! Mon verre bien a trompé !)
… Loosely translated as :
“Oops! I was momentarily confused because of the copious amount I have drunk”
Lemon is a noun - it’s not a verbenany sense whatsoever …
I was in a herb garden the other day and could’ve sworn I heard Robin Gibb in conversation. But it was just a chive talking …
I was just thinking that myself, fennel-ly enough.
So did I! But I didn’t want to make a big dill out of it.
Sorry about that @robert_mcintosh, we totally hijacked your original thread!
I’ve been told a basil-lion times to stop punning…
Basil lion, a close relative of
by any chance?
That’s tonight’s nightmare sorted anyway!
My husband still tears up from the Lion called Parsley… I can sort of get why.
Should have said - I can sorrel get why, but perhaps this is pushing the pun too far!
I can’t Bay Leaf this thread is still running…
I cayenne-n’t believe it either!
