    sorry man.

    just type whatever is important here.

    it's hard to understand what you write sometimes.

    never mind.

    here is all you need to know.

    Herbs are obtained from the leaves of herbaceous (non-woody) plants.
    Spices are obtained from roots, flowers, fruits, seeds or bark.

    In some cases both a herb and spice may come from the same plant. Dill is an example of this. The seeds from the Dill plant are spices, while the stalk of the plant is a herb.

    While both herbs and spices may be used for the purpose of flavoring food, spices are generally stronger in flavor so a smaller quantity is needed for flavoring. Spices can also used as preservatives.

    that is why I post links with PICTURES, for people who have problems understanding what is written, they also can look at photos. as the old proverb says, - a picture is worth more than a thousand words-.
