I was so sad to hear that it was Timber's time. You made a great team, and the pain you feel now is a testament to how much you loved each other.

Run free Timber, and breathe easy...

On second thought, I don't think it's technically an herb (not sure), but it does flower ;)

Regardless, it's the plant form you do have to worry about, not the homeopathic form.
