Happy Thanksgiving!

Updated: Jan 30

Happy Thanksgiving to us all! I'm spending the day with my favorite guy (yes, my husband) watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The timer just went off for the pecan pie - and we don't even have to share it this year! And thanks to technology, we still get to connect with our kids and grandkids (Happy Zoomsgiving!). There's so very much to be thankful for.

When I start listing the things I'm thankful for, many of you come to mind. Aw shucks. And the medicinal herb garden, of course. At this time 5 years ago, I would never have imagined I would be living in a new house surrounded by pine trees, with a yard of native and medicinal plants, and a medicinal herbs garden that I care for within biking distance of my new, perfect little house. Crazy! Crazy fabulous that is. Thanks to many of you that have helped to keep the garden going with your visits and donations to the garden.

Soooo... I'm actively planning for summer 2021. Let me know if you have any ideas and requests for plants to add to the garden. I hope to order in the next couple weeks to avoid the rush next spring, just in case shipping continues to take longer than expected. And I look forward to seeing y'all there again next year.

I haven't been very prolific with blog writing lately - you're welcome. However, I did take a weekend class titled "Homeopathy, Cell Salts, and Minerals for Herbalists" with Matt Wood through the Matthew Wood Institute of Herbalism. I needed a few days to recover from that fascinating and intense class. I know very little about homeopathy and even less about cell salts, so learned lots and am excited to include it in my toolbox of remedy options.

I'm looking forward to connecting with some of you via Zoom soon (or out on my driveway if weather warms). And I hope your Thanksgiving Day includes visits with your special people and a big piece of your favorite pie. Or cheesecake. Or both.
