I am an herbal practitioner, 74 yrs old, and have had a life long relationship with the plants in my area, which is Nova Scotia, Canada. I grow some of the plants I use and I also harvest in the wild. I LOVE taking people on plant identification walks. Whether indigenous or alien or invasive, they all are interesting to me. I have enjoyed your articles and if you want to contact me, I am available for conversations.
Your blog is a real service to plant people of all types. Although I have a Ph. D. in plant ecology, your pieces have brought to light many interesting aspects of all kinds of plants of which I was ignorant. Thanks, and keep up the good work.
