I law this article on the New York Tmes website.
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/1...
This was on the same day I found a Rue Plant growing out of on a part of the land where the bulldozer had pushed things around and destroyed some of the plants. It was in a pile of dirt and brush. So I need to dig it up and get it safely out of there if possible. And put it in the yard. When I went and looked again the next day, a snake appeared and then slithered away into the brush near the Rue. Wish I'd gotten a pic, but it's probably just a rat snake.

Neat article, thanks for sharing. I love herbal teas but rarely make my own even though I grow many of the tea herbs.

That was your Rue that the dozer rearranged? Hopefully you can get it relocated successfully.

The Rue is in a pot for right now. I also dug up a Laura Bush Petunia that somehow ended up out there. Must have come up from seed, because I didn't have any growing that year. It was blooming so pretty! Lows in the forties every night this week. Still need a bunch of rain!

spurred me on to harvest a few more herbs to dry and mix a couple teas .....It is after-all getting colder and that time of year. Smiling
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.
