Are you interested in botany, gardening, or plant lore? So are some vampires…

If you’ve read Love Lies Bleeding by Aspasía S. Bissas, you’ll know that main character Mara is both a vampire and a herbalist. She still studies plants, has a garden, and runs an apothecary business. This is where you can find posts exploring Mara’s plants.
