Mother Earth's Day

Violet Gifts for my Mom, which my kids made. So cute!
The garden tea that cured my daughter's headcold last week: Lemon Balm, Mint, Hyssop, Ground Ivy, Yarrow, Tarragon, Echinacea, Violet, Monarda and sage. YUM.
The never before seen phenom: Conjoined twin Dandelion flowers! Two flowers, one bract. Amazing discovery by my eight year old son.
My Mama Day gifts :) A luscious creamy smoothie with whipped cream, and inside the little wrapper was a crocheted bracelet and necklace set in shimmery magenta soy yarn. I Love my kids!
An unfurling Tall Meadow Rue (Thalictrum Polygamum, Ranunculaceae family). Anyone use this beauty for medicine yet? It might be my next forgotten herb ally. There is a lot of it here, and I just adore it's colombine-like presence and sometimes invisibility trick.

Yarrow, here again.:) I did not know there was a movie of Juliette. I love her work. I have "Nature's Children and "Common Herbs for Natural Health". Thanks for introducing me to the video via your profile.

Hi! Yes the movie is lovely. I think you can get it from Susun Weed.com, the bookshop. I agree her books are great.
Green Blessings!
