I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

I'm learning alot this week...

Last week on 1st day of work at the new job in the Nature Center, I tagged along with one of  our naturalist, we went on a wee bit of a hike with a small group in the woods looking for wildflowers...and then brunch was cooked on an open fire..I couldn't get over the fact that I was being paid for this. So anyway, we spotted many a wild flower in the woodlands, and I learned a few of them.  Usually, you cannot remove any plants from the park, but there is one that they want you to take because it is invasive. In fact, they have programs to have groups come in and pull them and remove them from the park.
you can read all about this in detail

Garlic Mustard

The naturalist told us that this is an edible plant,  and we all tried a tis taste, I could recognize the flavor of garlic. She said it makes very good pesto. Hmmm...:)

These actually have to be pulled up roots and all because that is how they spread.  For brunch, over the open fire, corned beef,onion,hash browns and (cheese (added last), and in the other pot scrambled eggs, combined the two and it was a hearty brunch after a hike in the woods..somebody pinch me to see if I'm dreaming..really.....this was part of my 1st day at my new job...
