"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

A plan

With each fruit tree I plant and nourish I do not care whether I gather it's fruit. What truly matters and what I ask myself is - what am I leaving behind after I am gone? The beautiful, giving nature of the tree inspires me. In them I see God's plan for me and humanity.

In the garden

Echinacea is a favourite in my garden. Plants or seeds are available for purchase at Richter's Herbs, a canadian mail order company. Echinacea is highly regarded as a blood purifier in the treatment of diseases caused by impurities. It increase's bodily resistance to infection by strengthening the immune system. Two excellent books on this herb are; The Echinacea Handbook by Christopher Hobbs and Echinacea Nature's Immune Enhancer by Stephen Foster.  The flowers have a slight fragrance and the herb needs staking as it grows to about 3-3.5 feet high. I grow echinacea purpurea as the roots, flowering tops and leaves are all considered medicinal. As I observe the honeybee and echinacea I ask myself - am I as helping as I can be?
