|The Dog Tooth Violets are just getting their buds. Soon drooping yellow bells |
will be held pertly above thin green stems.
|Trillium-one of my favorites due to their triple leaved and petaled form. This one is either red or purple when in bloom-I know from the spotted leaves it will not be yellow or white. This is also the source of Dixie John or Low John roots.|
|My beautiful huge Hellebore. I have several. Their amazingly resilient, crisp and perfect blooms will be used in |
old fashioned flying oils and ointments.
|Catkins hanging from my Harry Lauder's Walking Stick tree. One of my favorite sights of spring.|
|My weather vain that my husband found for sale at one of the local orchards.|
We just had to get it:)
|One of our hand made bird baths.|
|Wild violets which will be used in salads and desserts this week. |
Perhaps a violet infusion for lovely spring drinks too!
|Another Trillium unfurling it's triple Goddess leaves.|
|Blooms from my Squill roots.|
|Coltsfoot ready to burst. My favorite remedy for coughs and colds. The leaves are lovely for tinctures and|
to smoke to remedy the lungs.
