Sharon, another wonderful story. It's getting warmer here in Frankfort, KY and I have plans on exploring the woods and looking for the BearBerry (I'll send you some cuttings if I find it) .

That would be great, Rentman. Postmandug tells me that it is not a plant native to Kentucky, so I don't know if the leaves we picked were from an errant plant that lost its way in the mountains, or if we were visiting elsewhere when we grabbed them. However, I do know that it is one of the plants that is being considered, and possibly tried by now, for reclamation in some of those areas that were at one time mined.

It could be that it grew in the mountains at one time, and is no longer there, too. It has been many years since I have seen it, and I only remembered it from looking at the lists that Aunt Bett left.

Let me know if you find it. And thanks for writing.
