Hi guys! Y'all have been quiet here! Sorry again for the absence. Lots of issues going on.

I see folks are enjoying their care share of rain. Been rainy here too. My lawn guy disappeared on me, my weedeated broke, and with all this rain my weed beds are flourishing! Y'all know my issues with weeds. I can't even find my rosé bushes anymore. My horseradish is incredibly large. But I've got to be patient and let it grow for a bit longer. I was so excited about harvesting some this fall until Angela burst my bubble and told me I had to wait. Oh well...she probably saved the crop for me. At least I'll be getting it established so it can do its thing.

I know I'm a bit late to the game and it's probably not needed, but Rowan, our Dear Tea has always told me that calendula oil is fantastic for just about any injury like that. Her grand kids call it "Granny's magic oil" because it heals so quickly and she told me it was good for bruising. Hope that helps.

What's everyone else been doing?

10 degrees cooler than yesterday and dry. Beautiful Texas summer day.  Now the Sun has gone over I need to water my garden pots.  My Kentucky Wonder beans are climbing the trellis and the old beans are fading.  I would like a thunder storm...well, after we see the meteor shower tonight.

I am loving this thunderstorm! Time to get in my snuggie and enjoy the view

Clouds blocked out the moon except for about 15 minutes last night and today it is raining off and on. My lawn man showed up during a break in the showers and did my lawn at high speed, telling me we are supposed to have this weather for a few days.

It can't decide what to do here, every couple of hours the forecast changes. I'm hoping to get up mu privacy fence today so I can spellwork in the garden tonight but the weather gods might send me indoors too.

Rowan we have so much information on the group pages now it's getting hard to find things. Do you remember what kind of recipe, poultice, tea or tincture? We might find it that way. I use arnica and comfrey for bad bruises but not if the shin is broken. I'll dig out my recipes and post them on the wall here. Maybe someone else has a good remedy.
