Talking about study and learning.
Friday was the first time since childhood I touched a Hawthorn tree. :) When we were young we knew her for the deep scratches she could give and sweet scent and when we played hide and seek you had to curl up to her, make yourself smaller and huddle close to her carefully as to not to walk away with sharp painful red or bloody marks. When I went looking for fresh Hawthorn medicine this Friday I expected blossom sweet and lots, lots of thorns and the soft blossoms were there on all trees and bushes but I really had to look hard for those sharp bits, her defence.. or is it called protection.. anyway.. Being so close to her I thought, 'How amazingly gorgeous can you get with being fragile in your soft petal flowers, old with the lines in your bark and deeply defending at the same time?' And also, with how many plants, beings can you fall in love? πŸ˜„πŸŒΏπŸ’š I got a bit lost in the feeling and only cut a little bag from different plants and should return as I use her ofte dried in tea. Wonder now how that 'll go πŸ˜‚
