The Magic in Yarrow

By Sharon
July 22, 2014

There was magic, she said, in the plants we gathered from the mountain. Magic plants had three reasons for living: They gave us food, they gave us medicine, and they gave us beauty. She said yarrow was truly magic because it was also a plant that could live with very little water. To me, the very best part about yarrow was that it was so old it had a story to tell. That made it even more magical. I loved Aunt Bett's stories.

Maybe someday we can trade front porches. I will take you to my mountain dreams and you can share your Hamilton Square with me. I think when we search our dreams, we might all find that treasured place.

Leslieray, your words are beautiful, thank you. I truly love "pie and happy".
