Herbs, slugs, hedgehogs and my cat.
A blog about herbalism, foraging, plants, and the relationship between plants and people.
Many posts are works in progress, updated regularly.
*** Always moving towards an honouring relationship with plants and nature,
respecting them as individuals who have their own lives, ways of being, cultures, traditions,
ideas and preferences - whether humans are present or not. ***
-----> Moving away from plants as "useful things we can do what we want with."
When you know the fourfoil in all its seasons root and leaf and flower, by sight and scent and seed,
then you may learn its true name, knowing its being: which is more than its use.

Is Gont Mountain useful, or the Open Sea?'
