All plants hold a special fascination for me.  

The Maaori family next door would carry me upside down, down to the beach.  That was easy to do as I have plaster casts on and a bar between my feet.  This contraption was to straighten out the bones of my club feet.  It worked.

I think I made their days when with a few scoops of wet sand the one upside down could quickly fill the buckets of pippies [ shell fish].  No bending on the holder's behalf.

So from this upside down life there was much to learn =through the close-ups views of the plants.

The brambles and what most people would class as weeds ... well, we ate.  Milk thistle is one that many people the wor=ld over will recognise the name off.  Pick it and it produces milk.  Great think=g to have with your veggies.  Even better just raw.

So when the neighbourhood children here come to play in my front f=garden they are learning which plants they may eat.  

Even simple things like pick at a higher level than the dogs can urinate on!

Check for bugs and slugs.

This goes with that.

Itchy, then check nearby as the cure is probably there too.

Enjoy the read.  

Sincerely

Susan

Emotional aspects of Communication with any person can be a trial.  
 
Especially when people you are wanting to communicate with are unaware of what it is you are struggling to say.
 
Top this with a situation of with what the heck is their body language telling you.
 
 
Now add to this the constant fear of being laughed at going into meltdowns 
 
Welcome to the cards concept.
 
Like the idea?

One steep step at a time. And then some more.  
 
And each step is a piece of foundation Floor.

A little lemon balm goes a long way
Lemon balm is such a profuse herb that once it takes hold you literally have to keep cutting it back.  Often this went into the compost for recyleing.  And often there was I wanting to do something else with it. The calming effects have long been known in o...

In appreciation of the garden, its content and smells lives on
School fares tend to bring up challenges. For me in the mid 1960s the challenge was to have flowers for the plate garden challenge. There were all these pretty flowers along the way home.  Picking up the courage I entered that drive. As I walked to the fron...
