Foraging, with a little help from my friends

Pokeweed shoots, field garlic, milk thistle, greenbriar, Japanese knotweed tips, garlic mustard flowers, violets and mugwort.

What a beautiful day. Yesterday. 


Spotless sky. Faraway blue. 


Birdsong and chipmunk whistles. This beauty is a hooded warbler. He hunted, like miniature death machine, I watched him for a long time.

Spring is unwinding so fast it is hard to keep up.

  1. Great word: unwinding! fits exactly right this year.

  2. Such bounty! We harvested ramps in the Catskills last weekend, and made a ramp-themed dinner.

    That warbler is adorable, as is the chipmunk.
