backyard botanics

A blog about living a little closer to the Earth, connecting body and spirit with source.

Everyone can experience a connection to the planet, to the earth that nurtures, feeds, and sustains us.  There are endless, accessible ways to plant, grow, enjoy, cut, or harvest, according to your preferences and circumstances.  You can experience a connection to the food or botanics that sustain you no matter how brown you think your thumb is or how or how short you think your time is.

If it’s growing a single plant that seasons your food in a windowsill, planting a full-fledged vegetable garden or a kitchen herb garden (or both), experimenting with flowers for fragrance that calms, flowers that soothe, or building your own compost pile, this blog is for and about you.

    I am amazed and often lose my breath in the truth of what you write. For those of us who struggle at capturing the truth in words, your gift is especially treasured. Thank you for sharing your gift, my star.

    Now that you’ve shared your blog with me, I understand another side of you that was previously unknown. Among your many talents, I do love this one the most because it is one to which I have also aspired. Inspire – that’s what you do for me.
