Cicadas in the sky with diamonds and other corny memes from our trip.
Month: June 2021
I found an app that has enabled my meme creation problem/gift. Now I’m the star of my own memes!
I am visiting Maryland where I grew up. Mom has all these books I made as a kid. I joked that it was the start of my meme making. I would cut photos of animals out of magazines and caption them. I’ve included some of these early vintage memes below.
Look who grew a thing! After two or three years my fig tree has finally produced fruit.
We pulled a couple wrinkly black mission figs from the tree today. Awesome!
When Dragons Fly
All the usual characters: mockingbird, thrasher, cat and our newest friend the dragonfly!
Spill the tea, not the infusion
I was recently introduced to the work of Susun Weed and her Wise Woman Way. She is a Green Witch and teaches about green blessings from her green heart!
She is a simpler- using only one herb at a time. She teaches people how to make nourishing herbal infusions from nettles, red clover, oatstraw, comfrey and linden. Infusions are different from just herbal tea in that they can provide richer benefits.
For tea you use a teaspoon of the herb per 8 oz and steep a few minutes. In contrast, an infusion uses 1 oz of your chosen herb per quart and steep 4-10hrs.
I had been making chilled unsweetened herbal tea on the daily since it’s been so hot. Now I’m drinking nourishing herbal infusions to impart greater benefits from our plant allies!
Susun offers free courses and videos on how to build your immune system so that you only have a mild case of the flu when you get it.

Or this video where she makes a nettle infusion!
