Today we Get Comfortable with Echinacea. We moved into our house in September of 2017. The following spring, I planted a small herb garden in what would become part of the bee garden. I wasn’t sure anything would grow since within a few weeks of planting all the trees got their leaves and the full sun was now dappled sun or shade.
By July, I decided that the garden had failed and quit paying attention to it. It was either that fall or the next spring, I noticed leaves I was familiar with but couldn’t place. I let the plant grow and soon enough the flower revealed who she was. Since then she comes up every year and I always look forward to it.
“Get Comfortable” is an in-depth look at the plant and each part that makes up the plant while noting all the features one sees. We visit the same plants from the “A Moment” series, this time doing about ten to fifteen minute, visual plant sit meditations with the plant. Currently, the videos are recorded one month in advance and released every Wednesday. Click here to view the rest of the series.
This series' inspiration was the guided meditation from The Holistic Herbalism Podcast.
