In other news, my interest in herbalism has been resurrected. I've been attempting to study it more. I want to learn more about how the Celts thought about and interacted with certain plants. I'm looking for good source material. I've been meaning to read Carmina Gadelica and I know there will be some in that. But what else? I read a really great essay by Erynn Rowan Laurie called "Goddess of the Growing Green: Airmid of Ireland." It really inspired me. While at Alex Bay, I found a piece of driftwood and I'm thinking of using it to create an image of Airmid for a garden shrine. I already made a doll of Airmid, but she isn't suited to the outdoors.
This is an incomplete photo... Her shroud has more color now. :D
How many of you are involved in herbalism? Any tips or resources you can recommend?
