Hello friends! We are nearing the end of June and my garden is a jungle. If you know me, you know that I welcome the weeds and live harmoniously with them. I have been as busy as the bees have been this Spring and early Summer. With the completion of a gorgeous platform in the secret garden, the tours are underway. I have had three groups participate in my garden tea and tour. During the two -hour time slot, I teach about the plants that grow in the yard and I share how I have taken a blank slate and have made it into an oasis filled with medicinal herbs and fabulous flowers. I share my passion for taking things that might have been doomed for the landfill and repurpose them into garden art. My goal is to show people how much fun gardening can be, and how to connect with the natural world. The plants that are commonly thought of as weeds in most people's lawns, can have immense benefits. The humble dandelion is a superstar in the world of herbalism and is also gleaning more recognition in the medical world as well. You will learn many of the wonderful benefits of the dandelion and much more.
The photo I've included in this post Is a birdbath that my dad gave me a long time ago. It spent many years sitting in their side yard before coming home with me. I added a broken angel from a planter I received when my mom died, then added some beach stones for the bees to land on. Now I have a meaningful piece in my garden that is also useful. I keep fresh water in it for the birds and bees to enjoy on these dreadfully hot days.
You too can come play in my secret garden with me. Contact me directly to set up your tour!
