This summer, we’ve been craving time with friends. As a result, our weekends are full of travelling and we’ve been spending less time in the forest then last summer. Finally last weekend, Esker and I got out for a good forest visit.
Viper’s Bugloss – not native, (and maybe invasive?), but really pretty.
St. John’s Wort is out in full force this year! Such a wonderful healing herb. Collect the flowers and buds, make an oil infusion, and then a salve. Great skin healing properties.
We collected a birthday bouquet for the lovely Katherine.
I dried the medicinal plants I found in Ikea sock holders. You can find these for 99 cents at any second hand shop.
