These pictures, I think, summarize my world these days. There is ballet (always), and new additions to the farm (kittens!), and flowers - oh so many flowers. Gladiolas and sunflowers and calendula and zinnias and oh my goodness, did you... Continue reading

Oh, this is what everyone else says and I so wish that were the case! I have doused myself in jewelweed showers practically to no avail. But isn't it amazing that it grows right near poison ivy and is the cure (for most)? That's amazing. ~amanda

(Admittedly, I was similarly smug about never having had it before. Harumph. This'll teach me!) The skirts are both thrifted jersey finds - one from Gap and the other Olive & Oak. Super comfy home skirts. ;) ~amanda

Yes! Thanks so much. We do have jewelweed growing and that was one of the first places I turned when the poison ivy hit. Sadly, it just didn't do it for me. Such a bummer! Limeade - sounds so yummy! ~amanda

I hear you! I am currently on my third round of prednisone - which was of course my last ditched effort (that still isn't over!). No fun at all. Thanks for the tip about Rhus Diversiloba - I'm going to do some more research about that. (And I'm sorry that you suffer too!) ~amanda
