Google+ What I Made Today

Monday, July 21, 2008

I picked a basketful of zucchini and zephyr squash . . . I ate some raw, I sautéed some with butter for supper and grilled some to add to this mixed summer veggie salad that will be enjoyed cold over the next couple of days.
I made time to wander my gardens, to inhale the fragrance of life (and death), and to witness the absolute beauty of flawed perfection.
I made honor in play with watercolor (it still needs something more).
I received some silly inspiration for one of the creative beginnings that made manifest a few days back.

That's what I made today

Ahhhh what a lovely picture! I can just smell them now. :-)

My son and I were just talking tonight, about finding a small little cabin in the woods and living there with our cats. I miss the country.

Really pretty blog, will go look around more now.

Hello Rosemari,

I have a wee pile of comfrey and am considering what to do with it, an oil, dried.... do you have any suggestions?

Tammie -
If it's fresh, infuse the leaves it in an oil. It makes a really nice green skin oil.
If it's dry, save the leaves to drink as a nutritional tea. If you don't care for the taste, feed it to a hungry - it makes a GREAT "green Manure" fertilizer - whic is how it first made its way into my gardens!

If you speak of the root - be aware of the potential impacts of the liver toxic PAs before using it in any manner.

Hugs back atcha!

PS I LOVE your recent blog entry and I really do THANK YOU for sharing that hike with us all!

Thank you for your wonderful ideas. It is fresh, so in olive oil it will sit. I think I will have some more for tea infusions.

Thank you for your ongoing support and appreciation of my art, it touches my heart in a lovely way!
