It's Snowing.......

We have had a ton of snow this year.  A lot more then last year for sure - and it has been way colder then it generally is here @ MoonMaid Botanicals' in the Smoky Mountains.  The plants seem to be sleeping soundly and one can certainly see the trees swelling with life that will soon burst forth.  After all, come February 2, Groundhog Day, we are officially half way through the winter season.

The pond at MoonMaid Botanicals' plant sanctuary is frozen solid, creating just another playground for our little mascot, Nissan.  When he is not playing with his best friend, Red the cat, he is running around the land keeping track of all the goings on.  He is a joy to have around.

We have had some exciting news at MoonMaid Botanicals!!! We have adopted one of our very favorite herbs for women's health - Wild Yam through the United Plant Savers Network.  Rosemary Gladstar, an early teacher to me, started this organization some years ago to raise awareness about endangered and over harvested native species.  We are honored to be part of this network.

Our monthly specials will resume via newsletter.  If you have not signed up for that, you can do so here.  You can follow us on Facebook, if you don't already by clicking here.  We hope you have a wonderful, safe, and prosperous week.  Until next time.  Cynthia @ MoonMaid Botanicals
