Plantidote of the Day 2010-11-08
Today's Plantidote hat tip goes to Correntian Eureka Springs, who shot this spectacular example of fall in northwest Arkansas's Ozark mountains, outside the Victorian resort village, Eureka Springs.
Geologically speaking, the Ozarks are the oldest mountain range in North America, used to be higher than the Rockies are now.... lots of ancient spirit.
That tree isn't a fallen tree, it looks different because I am standing high atop a cliff, and the other trees/color are across a valley.
Thank you, ES! Beautiful way to start the week!!
Readers, please send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) images and stories for the ongoing Plantidote of the Day series. In exchange, you'll win undying fame in the form of a hat tip! Plants growing in your garden, your house, or neighbor's yard, plants from the forest or farmers' market, plants you preserved, plants you prepared (wine; cider; tea; dried beans), plants you harvested (grains; chanterelles), plants you picked (flowers), plants you dried (herbs), plants you covet or hope to grow someday. Herbal remedies, propagation tips, new varieties, etc.. And if you can, include some solid detail about the plant, too -- a story, the genus and species, or where you got the seeds, or the recipe, or your grandmother gave it to you. Or challenge us with a “Name That Plant” mystery entry ... And please feel free to add corrections and additional information in the comments.
