It's all about herbs!
I'm the kind of person who plans and plans and sometimes has problems executing. Are you like that? Well, I've decided to just go ahead and pull the trigger and start. I've been thinking about starting this blog for quite some time now. What to say? What would my customers be interested in hearing about? Is my point of view of value? And on and on. One of the sayings we had in the corporate world "Ready Fire Aim." Another saying I heard recently was it doesn't have to be perfect, you just need to start. So...I've decided to do just that.
This blog is to bring you tidbits and information on the wonderful world of plants (herbs) that are growing all around us, but that we tend to ignore. Not only do we ignore them but we also try to eradicate them from the earth altogether. As an herbalist, this hurts me. I just say, if they only knew the value these plants bring nutrition-wise, health-wise. So, I've decided to take folks on a tour of my backyard, and other places around the area to introduce them to some of these long-forgotten allies.
Spring is the perfect time to start since this season brings so many early visible visitors. I love the colors and lightness that they add to the landscape. I wildcraft some of these plants and just love using them in my products. Fresh is always best, but dried plants work too.
Through this blog, you and I will explore outdoors and learn what the herbal plants look like throughout the seasons, how to recognize them, get to know their habitats, how to detect their "imposters," and get to experience their medicinal and nutritional properties.
I can't wait to get started. Hope you'll join me. Just click on my name above to follow me.
Peace and Herbal Blessings,
