Time for Flora


Today I made time for flora. The morning started with a weed walk with Connecticut Herb Association friends at the lovely Holcomb Farm in Granby, Connecticut.  We met poison ivy, jewelweed, wild grapes, raspberries, joe pie weed, garlic mustard, plantain, yarrow, sumac, clover, wild carrot and more. It was a good time with good people.


On the way home I made stops along the way to pick up this and that. When I returned to my little acre I harvested some collards, cucumbers, lettuce and flowers. Flowers cultivated and flowers wild.

That's what I made today. Peace.

Reminds me so much of all the lovelies in my Grandma Leta's gardens. Beautiful!

It sounds like you had a lovely day with like minded people :) That's always very nice to have!

I've always wanted to go on one of those nature walks-Hopefully one day in the future, I'll be able to!
