Day 202 – 21Jul2011 – Acadian Herbs

Project 365 HG – Acadian Herbs.

Day 202 – The elecampane is in flower in the Acadian Garden. Centuries ago, the Acadians grew various herbs for medicinal purposes.

The Acadian House in the background is a replica of a 1671 design, some 80 years before the deportation, in the days when Annapolis Royal (then Port Royal) was the centre of Acadie.
