Thanks Plant Friend

Red Clover (Image by Michael Blackmore - Mad Crow Herbals)

It was a struggling December day in Boston and my soul was weary, but it was made so much better because I stumbled across a beautiful patch of Red Clover (Trifolium pratense) on my way to work.

Not technically rare since there are autumn blossoms of it (but actually it isn’t autumn anymore), but it was a beautiful surprise since I wasn’t expecting it and it was growing in a place I walk by daily but had never seen it before.

So I paused and sat on the ground, despite being in my work clothes, and just spent time with it as the rest of my neighborhood marched on to the subway in their pre-caffeine zombified state.  It renewed my spirit, just at time when I needed it.

It’s easy to list out all the “bigger” ways the plants can heal us physically, but it is the subtle and random ways when they appear and heal the spirit where the true magic can be found.

Thanks, red clover!

Thanks for reminding us all to slow down and spend just a little more time with the plants. They always quietly call us, don’t they? I saw some Calendula just yesterday that I was telling you about – and it made me so happy to see it blooming so cheerfully in December….

They really do! I’ll have to keep an eye out for the Calendula because that would be wonderful December sight as well!
