My Herbalism Motto
I've been training in herbalism for a while now (I'm an RN and I go by "Nurse Mary") and I really love it. I prefer to go slow and really learn all I can about a plant, and grow it if I am able, before using it in herbal formulas. A few of my favorites are ...

The Amazing Wellesley Ravens
I just love corvids. I used to live in the Far North, where the ravens are the size of small aircraft. Now I live in the tropics, and we have Fish Crows, the smaller, cuter cousin of the American Crow. Fish Crows, MRobb, 20014 I love them, but I do miss the...

I grow a number of medicinal herbs in my outdoor garden. The two I'll show today are Frostweed (Verbesina virginica) and Jamaican Leaf of Life (Bryophyllum calycinum and pinnatum): Frostweed is thusly named because it sends out water vapor when temperatures...

Melancholy Musings and an Update
I've been too sad and too busy with the current environmental meltdown here to blog. Mostly too sad. After gathering data on the human health effects, putting that together with some other concerned residents, and sending it out to everyone, including the g...

Weekend Walkabout: They're All Dying....
Y'all know how much I love my sand dune and all the creatures that live on it, and in the ocean, and the river. (I live between the Atlantic Ocean and a large estuary, which we call a river.) This weekend I have had a heartbreaking walkabout. The river is d...

Oh No, More Age of Lonely....
I truly don't like being a Debbie Downer. I'm generally described as "perky" or "bubbly". Still, I manage to maintain my five senses, and I don't like what I'm sensing some days..... I used to go free diving, SCUBA diving, and snorkeling in South Florida an...

Schwantesia borchersii blooms!
Yes, I really do still grow mesembs, and Schwantesia is one of my newer additions. Schwantesias are dwarf mesembs, just like Lithops. They have gone through an extreme form of evolution to become very small, compact, and highly stonelike in appearance. They...
