Can You Recognize Herbs Growing in the Wild?

The other day I was on a walk in Calistoga and came across a huge field of rosemary. I recognized it instantly and was dreaming of using the earthy sprigs as skewers. Later, my friends and I came across another herb growing. This one was harder to identify because it was flowering. After taking a big sniff, we realized it was mint. Although I rarely come across herbs growing in the wild, I was happy to see that I was able to identify them. Can you?

I can recognize a select few, mainly what I use when I am cooking.

Starting my own garden has certainly helped me recognize them. When in doubt, the smell test usually works!

There are a few I can recognize in the wild because I have them growing in my own little garden. Before I started growing my own herbs I couldn't identify any of them except maybe rosemary.
