Have any of you ever made jelly from her beautiful blossoms of the Queen? It tastes delicious and is delightful. The color is a beautiful peachy color and it has many uses.

I like the wild catnip and recently I've infused it in clover honey. The catnip is great used as a tea. I use it for stomach aches and bloating. My children had catnip tea as youngsters when they had colic or gas.

I do want to share that I would not use these herbs that are growing next to the wood beams because of the creosote, which is toxic.

I hope that you enjoy the picture. They is a wooden bridge and a lovely stream just yonder and can't be seen in the picture.

Be well and touch someone's heart today, jonnie dee

Don't let a hole in your  break the circle of love...
In our nation, there is a hole in our hearts.

The pain of recent events have caused much unrest, anger and pain. A hole in our hearts can break the circle of love, acceptance, growth and unity that everyone should strive for.

This circle is often lopsided and in need of mending, however, If we allow the circle and chain to be broken it can cause major loss and hardship for all. Life is challenging enough for many.
I am old enough to have seen what pain, death, suicides, life long judgments, insecurities, abuse, neglect and more have caused to the human spirit. It comes to all sizes, shapes, colors, ethnicity, race, gender, religion and more. 

We have to start at home with our little boys and our little girls, showing them equality within the family. The little ones watch what we say and how we act. Returning to the simplicity of core values and fairness may start mending our core values of love. 
I have 95 nieces and nephews and I've seen it even within my own family. I often tell my daughter that when she speaks to her child a certain way, they are going to think that is an acceptable way for everyone to speak to them.🏘
Racism, anger, prejudices and judgments start at home. Being fair and loving doesn't end at the church steps or at our doorway. These values need to be taught and practiced in and out of our homes. It saddens me to see the unraveling and injustice of our culture. I have experienced judgments myself from others. I have been judged because I was white, a female and overweight. I know that I can't change the world, but I hope to make a difference by mending the hole in my heart and keeping the circle of love as strong as I can, being a good example, even though I too have a hole in my heart and it may be a bit tattered as well. #touchsomeoneshearttoday
Ps. I make no judgments of you, I am just sharing thoughts and my view. be well, jonnie dee #herbalrealestateagent #loveoneanother #circleoflove #holeinmyheart

Sometimes we hold on to where we are and hold on until the very end...
Just like this dandelion seed...
It's okay...
We all do the best we can...
When it's time for you to let go or move forward you will...
Lessons from a dandelion...
Be well, jonnie dee

I always smile when I spy a great photo capture that is most often overlooked by the average passerby.

I've never seen the redbud growing up the trunk like this...
If I get a chance I'll share pictures of a cake and a rice dish my son's girlfriend made using the redbud blossoms...Yum!

Some will understand..
Some will not...
Some will care...
Some will not...
Some know...
Some don't want to know...
Some are overwhelmed...
Some make it their life's work...
Inherently, subconsciously I think most of us feel it deep within us but allow busyness to push it inside...
Our world can't continue at this pace...
Our current worldly pause...
Has created a crack...allowing those concerns to whisper to me...
The earth had started to heal...
Now what?
Just my thoughts for today...
Be well, much love, jonnie dee
