Woods Walk, contd.



On our way home, you must stop and see what is happening in this low spot. It is completely covered in this small knotweed. The ground looks pink. The camera sees the ground ivy hiding in the midst of the knotweed. Hard frost will kill the Polygonum, while the Glechoma will continue on.

I still await the first hard frosts to drive the energy of the plants into their roots. Once that happens, we will take our spading forks and make some tinctures. Until then, enjoy. And remember, herbal medicine is people’s medicine.
