Two New Books!

One book was recently published, and another is coming out in October!  Both feature toxic plants!  

The first one, Botanical Curses and Poisons, by Fez Inkwright, delves into the history and complexities of toxic plants, or parts that are toxic, in our daily lives.

And the second, The Poison Path Herbal, by Coby Michael, focuses on using toxic plants in spiritual or ceremonial enlightenment.

I’m not endorsing, nor suggesting the actual uses of these plants on your own, but both of these volumes look like interesting reading.

My first book will be arriving shortly, and I’ve pre-ordered the other.  I’ll share insights into both of them.  

If you buy either, or both, I’d love to read your thoughts!

Sweet Violets Speak May and Dream

Sweet violets are blooming! I adore them and our lawn is full of them. My intentions have always been to make violet jam or liquor. Violets represent truth and loyalty. Put them in your pillow and dream away. Let me know what you dream.  Sweet dreams and sweet violets. And Happy May!

Happy Earth Day

Happy Earth Day! Today I worked on my seedlings. I planted more winter squash. I encourage everyone to start a garden. My goal this year is to plant more native plants and to have enough in our veggie garden to share. I'd love to have enough to be able to share with my local food bank.

Cat Scarecrow Garden Stakes

I found these cat scarecrow garden stakes online. I really want to try them in my garden! I like that they are metal and they have reflective eyes. I'm not sure if they will work to keep away chipmunks, squirrel or rabbits. You can find them on Amazon and Wayfair.
