Spring Wildflowers

On our walk today we found the field clothed with colorful wildflowers. It feels like a whisper announcing Spring in the most humble way.

Violets caught my eye first; then Dandelions quickly followed. I picked only a few to start with including Chickweed, Forsythia, Henbit, and Purple Dead-Nettle.

While trying to organize the best methods to use for each flower, I looked to various resources as guides.  I felt very inspired and energized to try new herbal remedies. Meanwhile, as I started to gracefully gather the flowers, my allergies were slowing me down.

I experimented with several Spring remedies, and found each one encouraged better health in subtle ways.

It has been some of my most productive weeks. I selected three specific projects to share with you, and they are the following:
