Silver Bells and Dogwoods....

Silver Bells are delicate trees with a bell like blossom, they are so delightful...and brief. The appearance of the flowers lasts only a week or so....and then they are gone.  We had a tragedy here in my neighborhood of the felling of an old tree by a road thoughtless.  I am grateful for the three I find here @ MoonMaid's Woodland Sanctuary.

And then the lovely Madam Dogwood.

The trees create canopy that protects the herbs growing below - wild yam to be precise.  MoonMaid would not exist without this wonderful woodland medicinal that is the main herb in our products; ProMeno Women's Wild Yam Cream, Vital "V" Wild Yam Salve and ProAndro Men's Wild Yam Cream.

There are flowers of many colors of course....but there do seem to be an abundance of white varieties.

Tulips and daffodils give way to Silverbells and Dogwoods.  It is shaping up to be a very beautiful Spring here on the mountain.

Until next time - Cynthia @ MoonMaid Botanicals

Spring has sprung @ MoonMaid...

Spring has sprung!!!!!  Winter was a little bit hard and I find myself especially grateful for the flowers that are everywhere.

It has been an absolute cascade of colors.

I have been taking lots of photos of the flowers and a whole bunch of medicinal plants that I will write about as the days go along.

Many of the woodland medicinals that are native here @ MoonMaid Botanicals Medicinal Plant Sanctuary, are the very ones we use in our products.

I trust you had a beautiful day......I look forward to writing about the abundance of beauty that will emerge each and every day.       Cynthia @ MoonMaid Botanicals
