(a real make-do chair reinforced many years ago, prim bowl of Lemon Balm and a little bunch of sage)
The wild rose bushes (across the street in the woods) are in full bloom and the scent of those are intoxicating - when you pick the flowers they die very fast...(sad face) but then if you leave them alone in November you get the prettiest red rosehip bunches. Of course you have to remember where they were blooming cause they get hidden with the rest of the woodland growth. Personally I purchase ours for the store from my "gatherer"...Kathleen....I don't know how old she is....older than me and you all know I am old...but she tredges (with an adult grandson) thru thicket and vine to her favorite cutting place and fills all the local stores from Lancaster to Hereford with her bounty!! (and very reasonable too!) (am I talking Christmas????- forgive me) ~~~!!!!
