Wondiferous Weed Walk


Tina and the members of the Essential Herbal chat group have talked us into having a weed walk at our home. It will be held on August 15th rain or shine. We hope it will be a learning and fun experience for those that attend. There will be lectures, demonstrations, and handouts. Space is limited so if you wish to attend please contact me at sgherbs@verizon.net. Some of the topics we are working on are tinture making, wild edibles, hydrosols, soapmaking, mushroom logs, maple tree tapping, out door bake oven baking, and much more. Sign up before July 15th to receive the Early Bird price. Hope to hear from you soon.

Just dropping in to say that the day the Wills put together was AWESOME! Everyone there learned a lot, had a good time, made some friends, and wants to do it again. If you didn't make it, you really missed something special!

Fairy Garden

The fairy garden is coming along fine. The grandchildren love hearing all the folklore about the plants in the garden, such as the foxglove which the fairies use for their clothes. Then there is the thyme that is a must for them to sleep upon. One evening as the fireflies started to appear, my grandson got very excited and was sure he saw the fairies moving about the garden. We watched and listened as we talked about how the fairies love to dance and needed the light to see and the bluebells provided their music. We also placed some jewels about the garden because they like shiny objects, but made sure we did not add any metal items. We also added a gazing ball because as you know fairies are very vain! It is a great way to get the kids involved with gardening and add a little adventure at the same time.
