Not herbs or flowers..but so green and pretty!
We’ve been putting in a few herbs recently, Comfry for wounds and bites, lemon balm for restful teas, roses for beauty and oils. Our red clover is spreading, which delights me, as clover is such a healthy herb! It drives away colds, brightens my mood, and is sort of a ideal catch-all herb for women. We don’t have much, but I’m hoping that, as our trees recede a bit, it will have some space to spread and grow.
Our Beebalm is blooming, and I’ve found a fantastic recipe for beebalm infused apple jelly. I’m excited to try it, though apples aren’t really in season. I’m going to do it anyway, maybe I’ll enlist the help of the family on their visit! But some of the flowers I’m saving to make bright, beautiful teas that lift winter blues, and smell just a bit like heaven.
