Purple is the new #anti-aging ....Mulberry Season!! These little berries have so many things they'd rather be doing than staining the sidewalk or squished in your toes. And right now, likely, they are a #free and #plentiful #foodsource in your neighborhood. I gorged this morning on the dog run and got a #superfood hit of #vitaminc , #iron , #protein , and other #anti-oxidents and #minerals. #mulberry is considered a #bloodtonic in #chinesemedicine with #liver and #kidneycleansing properties. They also contain #flavinoids that support and balance #bloodsugar levels. Mulberries also make a mark in the beauty realm with their #hairgrowth and #rejuvenation properties as well as featuring a host of anti-oxidants that help #skin remove toxins, unclog #pores , promote even skin tone and #moisturize . And if you are a lover of #naturalfabrics , you can thank the mulberry tree for its' important ecological role as the sole food source for the #silkworm . #theearthshehealsus #freefruit #urbanfor...

Baby Tulsi (Holy Basil/Ocimum sanctum) plants!! #holybasil , sacred ancient herb mentioned in #ayurvedic texts dating back to 400 BCE. Considered one of India's most poweful herbs, this #adaptogen nourishes and promotes #longlife with its' properties as an #antioxidant #radioprotective #neuroprotective and #stressreducing medicine. It is believed to help maintain the #chakras with its' #sattvic (balancing and nourishing) energies. In addition, it is used to enhance cerebral circulation and #memory and treat #allergy symptoms from #mold . It loves Western Colorado sun and soil and I personally utilize a large portion of my garden space to grow it for use in an #adaptogenic #elixir . #coloradogrown #growyourownmedicine #protectionherbs #adaptogenesistherapies #handsinthedirt

Swift shaft,
focused trajectory of mottled corrosions,
dandelion vigor.
Call this one
"Experience."

Fletching, a soundless
combustion
of owl design.
Regarded as
"Sight."

Broadhead pierces muscle and marrow,
claiming
everything and nothing.
It's name,
"Nameless."

Crest proclaims
both
clan and anonymity,
laundered hearts and
filthy
lucre of wind scoured alleys.
Marked
"Discretion."
