Allium vineale (wild garlic, onion grass, crow garlic, stag's garlic) it goes great in stews, but our favorite way to use it has always been chopped and tossed into a batch of dandelion biscuits... of course the kids just like to chew on it to gross each other out with epic garlic/onion breath and show off to each other (and their momπŸ™„) how it turns their spit vivid shades of green πŸ˜ΆπŸ˜‘πŸ˜

The wild flowers have been shedding their tiny petals on me like they're throwing confetti... chiggers, too, but nothing truly beautiful is without its flaws πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰πŸŒΌ

🌼🐞 "Into the fields I wandered, to seek the simple, to explore the path the ladybug travels, to fixate upon the complexity of wild things, to be filled with the wonder of a child... I stayed there until joy infused my heart and etched itself in grooves and lines upon my face, and a longing for eternity sprung forth deep in my spirit." 🐞🌼 -me .

Follow the road to the middle of nowhere, take a left and follow the honeysuckle vines, that stretch and reach, grasp and cling, past the wild blackberries with their treacherous thorns and delicious berries... you'll find me there with my barefeet covered in wet grass, my hair wild with humidity, my fingers stained with dark berry juices, my mind full of wonder, and my heart full of joy that will out live this mortal coil.

Oh, but darling, she lived her life like a wild flower drenched in the morning dew, here for such a short time, knowing her earthly beauty would fade from us, but that she would come back one day, her beauty magnified in a splendid array... and, oh, how she sparkled... 🌼

I could study the beauty of Queen Anne's Lace in every stage, from every angle for days... or possibly a lifetime. Nature provides us with such a splendidly fabulous array of beauty!

Yesterday, walking the pups be in between rainstorms (and during), I paused on our way back to try to capture this image... it seemed like a simple task, but when there's a super happy (wet!) mini aussie pup in the mix, things can be a little difficult. She was vaulting back and forth over the wildflowers, if you scroll you can see her game of "now you see me" (and the wildflowers), "now you don't", lol, dogs make everything more fun, more challenging, yes, but always more fun 😁🌼

Raindrops on blueberriesπŸ’§β˜” doesn't matter if the raindrops are also falling on my head and phone, I simply couldn't not stop and admire our ripening blueberries as they bathed in glistening raindropsπŸ’§

"It's raining, it's pouring, I'm stuck inside and it's boring..."🎢... just kidding, I wanted to rhyme, I can't remember the last time I was bored, I've already danced in the rain (more acturately "walked/sloshed" behind a mini-aussie who wanted to run), and I have new infuser teapots and flowering teas that are perfect for enjoying on rainy days. There are few things I find more soothing than tea in my cup with the sound of the rain on the roof... helps give me something to focus on other than the fact that I've pretty much completely lost my voice πŸ˜‘πŸ˜

Stalking a ladybug. Never lose that childlike fascination and wonder, keep it, preserve it, guard it, bask in it. Don't get so caught up in the world that you no longer pause to admire a ladybug, smell the flowers, or witness the profound in the simplicity of nature. .

So we've been working on that whole "focus/look at me" command, a lot, and I was so excited to take these girl's pictures by the blackberry blossoms to show off their mastering of the skill... πŸ˜‘... you can see here Celina knows what I want/expect of her, she's just not going to give it to me, and they are both laughing at me, like this was something they planned out all along. πŸ™„πŸ˜‚

It's tradition that Gracie gets the first ripe wild strawberry of the season, but first, and only after, she poses while I strategically position the berry in front of the camera, in front of her nose, for our traditional first berry of the season pic πŸ˜ŠπŸ“
