Meet the Plants
Most days you will find me out in the gardens having long conversations with the plants and tending to their needs (as they tend to mine). I'd like you to meet a few of these amazing beings who bring so much color, medicine, and food into our lives. Click through each of the slide shows to view more of our plant friends.
Oats, picked in their juicy, milky stage, are cooling and supportive to the nervous system. Oat seed, or the meal, is used to soothe skin irritation.
Ahhhh, my sweet Lavender! I feel myself calming just thinknig about it. Such a beautiful plant for the nerves! The flower and stem also makes a delicate ecoprint.
Rose is so giving with its medicine. The hips are packed with Vitamin C, the petals are wonderfully cooling and calming, and the scent! Oh my! Hips and Petals are also edible, and the petals and leaves create shadowy blue and grey prints.
