Last week the library offered a free presentation on essential oils where every participant walked away with a spritzer bottle with a tea tree oil, lavender, and orange room freshener. I’ve carried the bottle with me from room to room and into the car. I spritzed my pillow, sheets, and heating pad with it as an add-in to my bedtime ritual.
Floral broom sweeps clean
With straws from summer harvest —
Spring’s promises bloom.
Yesterday, the kids and I walked the paths at the Blandford Nature Center. They continue to expand and now have a new building, boot huts made from shipping containers for childrens’ programs, a large wigwam, and a sugar hut. There are walking trails mostly still too snowy, but we were able to see the enclosures for the rescued barn owl, red-tailed hawk, and albino mink. The road leading in was gated as it is closed in winter. We saw several worms and caterpillars traveling on the sunny concrete.
ride free on a helping hand –
land gently; green leaves.
