No makeup, pigtails and a hat in nature is my favorite!
Working hard on my New Year's resolution to hike more. Part of my self-care is knowing that the outdoors raised my spirits, dusts the cobwebs off of my soul and renews my energy for the week. And making that a regular part of my life instead of a last ditch effort to restore myself. And I'm loving it!
What resolutions are giving you life this year?
Crotalaria spectabilis (rattlepod, rattlebox, showy rattlebox) was introduced to the US from India for green manure.
As a legume that supports nitrogen fixing bacteria, it is considered a "soil builder."
However, it is also poisonous to cattle, swine, horses, and poultry.
It has spread rapidly throughout the Southeastern United States where it is now considered an invasive species.
In India, extracts of the whole C. spectabilis plant are used as traditional medicines to treat impetigo, scabies, intestinal worms, and as an antiseptic for wounds.
Oh you're very pretty!
More swampy goodness.
A swamp I never get to see.
Camping didn't happen and it really bummed me out but my mom and I are gonna hike today!
