On Saturday, May 6th, which was National Herb Day, I was blessed to have a group of people over to my home where we drank tea, talked about everything under the sun, and had a lesson in making salves – in this case, it was Arnica Montana Salve for bruising and topical pain relief. And we had a plant walk in my wild yard.
It was glorious! I loved seeing the enthusiasm and interest and they asked such brilliant questions! Luckily there was another person there who was really good at plant identification.
And I learned I have Cleavers in my yard! Now to research that plant and discover all its benefits.
Overall, it was an extraordinary day and one I’ll cherish. I hope we do more like them.
