Herb Whisperer

Herb whisperer?...
Sometimes I think that I am...
Right outside my back door is a 4 foot Pokeweed plant...
Also are 3 or 4 stinging nettle plants that occasionally bite my family...
They often say that if a plan plants itself in your garden that you may have need of their gifts...
The first picture is of the berries coming into seed...
So lovely is the prism of color from the summer storm's raindrop...
The second picture is of last year's dehydrated berries which are often used for arthritis...
The seeds are poisonous but the flesh of the berry is not...
I swallow them whole...
If you do your homework you will find some very interesting facts and experiences from people who use the gifts of this beautiful plant...
I make no advice and I'm just sharing my experience with Pokeweed...
Be very cautious and study it before you use it...
For now I just share with you a lovely picture and an insight on how you might make use of the gifts that our Maker has so abundantly blessed us with...
