Yesterday we got home from the Midwest Women's Herbal Conference. It was wonderful, beautiful, inspiring, and absolutely fascinating. There was so much to see, so much to learn, and I was thrilled to be invited. Here are a few things we saw along the way.
So right after we crossed the border to Wisconsin we saw a sign for the Rotary Botanical Gardens. I made a hard right and we were pleasantly surprised with what we found.
A small sampling of their natives.
|Each bench had a beautiful quote. I thought, "well this would be neat in my garden..."|
|I had yet to see a full size zen garden. I am incredibly proud to say I did not run through it.|
|Did I mention the views were amazing?|
|Our first class was a weed walk with Kristine Brown (www.herbalrootszine.com). It was fun, educational, and I was so happy to finally meet the woman my mother had told me about for years.|
|One of my attempts at drawing.|
And that is an incredibly small taste of how our trip went. I could not capture in words or photos how absolutely wonderful it was to be there. We laughed, we cried, we danced, and we learned. During this weekend I learned how incredibly lucky I am to have this as my career. I am constantly learning, growing, and supported at all times. What more could you want?
