Seed Power

I love the flowering of these awesome perennials!
Columbine and Baptisia seed are so pretty to me.
I save them and give them to friends and family
as well as letting them self sow in any place
they wish.

Calming Power

This ever growing patch of Chamomile that I

have in my herb garden has always been a

constant reminder to me to take some time to

relax and take a moment to breath!

Breath too deep and I may fall asleep!

I love the wonderfully fragrant & calming

affects it has on me as a cold or hot tea.

Mix some peppermint in with it and then go get some sleep!

Flower Puff Power!

I don't know about you but I absolutley love Peonies!!
Next to Roses they are one of my faves!
It is one plant that I know has to work very hard to produce
amazing gigantic blooms like this. If someone develops a repeat bloomer
I will be one of the first to grow it!
If you adore peonies like I do try this relaxing aromatherapy
game. I do this with my kids & it is such fun!!
Lay down on the soft green grass or a blanket.
Take one large open peony bloom and pull off the petals
lay with your eyes closed and then drop them on your face or kids face slowly.
they feel so soft and smooth and smell so nice!
This will most likely become a plant of nostalgia when they grow up!
