Harvesting pine resin, cones and needles (and lots of napping amongst the trees) in the beautiful forest yesterday with @ipallant 🌲
Pine resin is one of my fave smells. Some say it smells like toilet cleaner but I think it smells like you're immersed in the forest. Mmmmm.

Loving cleavers water at the moment. Just pop a bunch in your water bottle and let it steep a while and mmm delish.

Love the purple underside of some nettles, even more rich in iron than the green ones. 🌱

When you go picking nettles and wild garlic but you're too knackered to actually do it so you lie down in the wild garlic instead.

Mmmmm nettles in all the stews. πŸ‘Œ

Paddlin' 🐟

Am in love with the beautiful blossom showing its flowery face around the place. And look at that heart shaped sun 😍

When I'm feeling overwhelmed with grief, which I am most of the time at the moment, a limeflower and rose bath is all that helps.

The limeflower soothes and makes you feel held, and rose opens the heart and helps you process grief.

Oh plants you wonderful things you. 🌱

Beautiful crisp river dip! 🐳🐟🐬

This weekend I gave a talk at Atlantic College about mental health and it was such an honour. My favourite part was the hour of questions that followed my talk. The teens overwhelmed me (in a good way!) with so many questions about life and emotions and trying to support themselves and each other. No one seems to give them the space and time to talk about all things that being a human entails and it was heartbreaking to see the level of support they needed but didn't have.

It was such an honour to bear witness to their courage and wisdom and offer any insights I could. Apparently my talk was their favourite of the year so far, so I felt mighty chuffed. ☺️ I've decided this is what I wanna do, give talks to teens, so if anyone knows of anywhere that might want me speaking, lemme know! πŸ’•

Finally picked some cleavers and nettles - first scrumptious fresh tea of the season. 🌱

Love the frosty mornings. Especially seeing these frosty baby cleavers climb their way up the stones.
