Living in the country presents something new everyday and learning to live with Crohn's Disease..
Fire Pink (Silene virginica)
This is one of our native flowers that really catches your eye. This plant is a favorite of the Hummingbirds because of the scarlet color and the sweet nectar. Historically it was used as a worm-expellent (vermifuge).
I began my study of plants as a child from my Grandmother, Rosa Leatherman and have continued the study of native plants. I have attended classes at Tom Brown Jr. Tracker School, Earth Walk Northwest by Karen Sherwood and the Herbal Healer Academy by Dr. Marijah McCain. I am a member of the Arkansas Native Plant Society and served as Secretary for 4 years. I have been co-owner of Cedar Creek Nature Studies and taught many classes on wild edible and medicinal plants. I make my own soaps and lotions share would love to share my knowledge with you.
