I don't know - do I think that my being out there will actually make the seeds spring up and the flowers flourish?? Beats me - but if I were a bettin' woman I'd say it couldn't hurt!!
This is a picture of an old chair that my husband customized for me. He attached a board with a hole in it to the seat of the chair. The hole was the perfect size for a big pot that I had in the garage and I just think the chair looks so old and country looking!! I love old-fashioned things and for me it suits the bill. To the left of it is oregano and lovage behind it, with some red bee balm that will be beautiful growing just beside it, though you can't see it here. Way back in the back to the left is the stinging nettle and behind that are my peonies which will be gorgeous in no time at all. This waiting for bloom is unbearable!!!
During the Irish Potato Famine comfrey was a life saving crop. It is chock full of vitamins and minerals and it literally kept many Irish citizens from starving. It is now considered unsafe for human consumption because of its propensity to cause cancer in rats and mice. There are many who testify to its healing power, being told they would never walk, etc., but as of this date we are cautioned to not take this herb internally. Cancer seems to be everywhere and no one desires to up their chances of developing that disease. Externally it's, in my humble opinion, a miracle worker.
Well, it's time to get the potatoes on and I'm going to pilfer around in the kitchen and see if I can't throw some kind of a dessert together. Talk to you tomorrow.
