Community cleanups

Thought of the gang today. Where we live had a "neighborhood cleanup day" today. What a great way to commune with the earth and our human community. A nice reward for those of us cleaning up the common landscapey areas: getting to take home the plants we removed. The islands look nice, and some of us have new plants in our own gardens.

Well, I did harvest some chickweed, dandelion, rosemary, garlic chives, and sage from my lawn and garden. I have not ventured out into the forest or other property yet to harvest herbs.
