Sometimes a day just works out. I didn't have a real plan, just wanted to see the family. Just wanted to enjoy the beautiful spring. But today, worked better than I could have imagined. I spent the day with some of the people I love. I spent the day at the farm, a place I love. Then we had a small adventure to the herb farm. What a fabulous place to walk and look and learn.
My father wanted to get a few herbs for his garden and I wanted to see the choices. What a fabulous choice of plants. Some even medicinal. Today I learned about Comfrey: One of the country names for comfrey was ‘knitbone’, a reminder of its traditional use in healing bone fractures. Modern science confirms that comfrey can influence the course of bone ailments. And of course, I have broken toes and an ailing foot. How timely.
The sunny day, the cool breezes, the fun environment all contributed to a great day. My purchases were: a columbine, a clematis, basil, oregano, thyme and comfrey. I loved this occasion and can't wait till my next visit.

Pay and then take it all home. Tomorrow is a garden day!
