Hi Sharon, You write beautifully and your story about the Spurge confirms how humans and plants can have special connections as the ones described by the Shamans. I have also noticed some very 'envasive' species can bring joy to any garden as long as you do not attempt to fight them but treat them gently and with respect. I guess the plant will communicate its proper use for every ailment or special occasion. I wish a could have such a way with words. Thank you.
Landhealer, it's so good to hear from you. Your way with words conveys a gentle message...we all have special connections, plants to people and people to plants.
I rarely ever do this in a comment post, but I am an artist and sometimes my paintings speak better than my words. I wanted you to see this painting, it conveys our relationship with plants, intermingled... intertwined. You see?
Plants are here for us, and in turn we must be here for them.
Invasive? Only if we allow them to be.
Non-native? Well, that's the fault of people too, I guess.
Now, see what your 'way with words' did to me. I almost wrote another article about plant/people connections!
