uncommon still life III

Challenge #93 in the variable subjects II series. Hosted by Lext123.
Challenge has finished
Compose a 'photographic work of art' depicting inanimate subject matter from uncommon objects. Normally a still life is a collection typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on). But with this assignment you’ll be asked to think 'outside the box', and use some surprisingly weird and/or interesting things, that makes the viewer wonder. And remember the objects must be deliberately staged by you as the photographer, so no still lives arranged by natural coincidence, or someone else. For examples see my previous challenges: http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Challenge.aspx?ID=7505 and http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Challenge.aspx?ID=8086

A collection of herbs given to my wife by some friends in Malta. Worried that they would not travel home to the UK well, I photographed them for her.
