The rocks are so good….. only trumped by our favorite river in NY. I could totally plan my traveling around finding good rocks….

I will definitely add chervil to my herb list for next year! That sounds delicious. I’m investing in some herb perennials next season too. More medicinal than culinary, but also able to transport when it’s time to move again. The college thing made me giggle…. we’re not sport fans but I have a lot of friends who are so I totally get it. I’m happy to do a custom too. We’ll just have to find some fun fabric for him :)

We made a trip to our favorite beach. I love the off season out there. It's quiet and we usually have the shoreline all to ourselves. Sometimes I dream of living in a little cottage, walking distance to a rocky beach falling into the sea. Just like Miss Rumphius. (You know, before you get all serious and consider how expensive...

I have both of those too! Another good one is Holly Bellebuono’s The Essential Herbal for Natural Health. You’ll have to let me know if you take the class! It’s really good :)

That makes my heart so happy to hear ;) I left fruit trees in Louisiana too. I always picture my forever house in my mind (or heart perhaps) and it has a magnolia tree or lilac bushes and several old fruit trees. A girl can dream......

So...... I've hear you can infuse oil with african marigold the same as you would calendula. And also that it can be added to tea. It looks so pretty dried and I'm hoping to have a few tea blends in the shop come spring (shhhh! still some secret plans in the works there). I always have a *huge* stack next to my bed too. Not enough time.... or perhaps just too many good things to read!

I added that book to our library list, thank you! I might have one boyish apron left. I think it's got orange feathers on one side & a turquoise chevron on the other? I'll take a look. I am happy to sew up a custom one for you too.... but I won't be adding more to the shop right now. Just not finding time to sew as much these days!

It's so good! I've read about herbalism a ton, and still I am learning lots of new great information in the introductory class. Tons of great printables & recipes.... so you could be printing off goodies for yourself :) My favorite book of recipes is Rosemary Gladstar's Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health. It covers everyone in the family!

It is so well put together and so beautiful. I had been waiting until fall to sign up and I'm so glad I did!

I *love* it. Self paced. Completely beautiful. It is online, but you can print it. I am working on the intro class and plan to go right on to the intermediate class when I am finished.... and it has a forum so you can work with other herbalists. I've been looking for an online program for years and this one is a perfect fit for me.
