A Photo Blog Just For you


For the month of May I wont have many written words, but more photo

s. Doesn't an image speak 1,000 words anyway?


Lets start off with some miscellaneous Images

 

Spring Daffodils and Tulips

Taking the pups for a walk.

My new Monstera plant from @FermeThuya

Morning Bliss. My favorite time of day is very early morning, when the sun is just peaking over the mountain, the earth is quiet and calm, and the healing energies of the sun radiate through my body. This is peace.


Trip to the flea-market and a huge chair made for big booties!


Garden and Plants

Early Front Garden


AFTER


Front garden filling with herbs and flowers and soon to be fuller, filled with vegetables.

Herb garden and vegetable garden

Compost bins [3 sectional]. First section is for freshly added items, second for mostly broken down and third is for completed compost.

Homemade garden tags for my herbs with things like common and Latin name, energies, constituents and when to harvest.

Chives

Anise Hyssop/lavender Hyssop (Agastache foeniculum)

Celery


Rows of dandelion for medicinal uses (flower, leaves and roots) being loved by this beautiful bee.


I was so amazed by the beauty and size of this rhubarb leaf!


These young "sad" looking sticks will soon grow to be abundant and full of raspberries.


This image is of the ginger rhizome I planted a few months ago (not of the trailer). It has grown into a beautiful stalk and is getting some very tropical looking leaves!

Herbalism

 

Lemon balm tincture made by 4-6 week infusion of dried Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) leaves, and vodka. helps to sooth anxiety and as a relaxant to encourage a peaceful nights sleep.

Dried Calendula (Calendula officinalis), slow infusion for later use.

Dried plantain (Plantago major) and dried Calendula (Calendula officinalis) slowly infusing in olive oil to go into the salves. I prefer using a slow infusion over 4-6 weeks than a heated infusion.

Freshly poured salve sitting to cool and solidify.

Spent 2 hours learning how to create a basic label!


Cooling Bug Bite Salve, samples were given out to friends and family to try! If that was you let me know if you loved it in the comments below!


Oregano (Origanum vulgare) hand cut.

Hand cleaned

All clean ready for hanging and drying.

Air drying out of direct sunlight, in a warm room. The fan we use to help cool the house will also help add air circulation and reduce the chances of mold from developing.
