Happy “Spring” and General Update

Happy Spring!  Although winter seems to be hanging on with everything it has, warmer days are really just around the corner.  I have to keep reminding myself that all these gloomy days will bring those beautiful May flowers.  In just a few short weeks, all of nature will spring to life.  It’s happening, it just doesn’t seem like it right now in NEPA.  I don’t think you’ll come across anyone in these parts who doesn’t have cabin fever!

I’m very much looking forward to spring cleaning this year, literally and figuratively.  I can’t wait to scrub and dust away every last bit of this winter and start all fresh and new.  I’ll be blogging about all of this, and my posts will likely focus more on planting, growing, and foraging (yay!) in the coming months.  I’m planning to start planting some seeds today.  I bought a collection of medicinal seeds and there are so many things I want to try growing, it’s hard to narrow it down!  I’ll let you know what I finally decided on in my next post.

I also wanted to mention that I am on Instagram now, and I actually post fairly regularly.  The things that I post there don’t always make it to the blog, including my Herbal Academy student projects, so if you’re on Instagram, I’d love to connect!  (Even if you’re not, you can still check out the page by clicking on the link 🙂 )

Also in the coming days and weeks, I will be adding Amazon affiliate links to my blog.  I will be linking to products I actually use and recommend, and if you purchase that item through my link, I will earn a small commission.  Those of you who read these posts through email may not have noticed that my blog has undergone a makeover of sorts, and having put the time into making it look nice, I was a little put-off by the Auto Zone ad that popped up when I saw my page at a friend’s house. (No offense to Auto Zone!)  So, I decided to upgrade this site to remove ads and I’m hoping that the affiliate partnership can offset that cost. I promise to not be obnoxious with the links! 🙂

Lastly, some have asked about the photos I’ve been adding to my pages.  The photos that aren’t mine are primarily from a website called Unsplash, which is a site for photographers to display their work and gain exposure.  Their photos are free to use – all they ask is that you give them credit for their work, which is more than fair.  I have some beautiful pictures on my site, and hopefully, the artist gains some exposure…it seems like a win-win, so I’ll keep using them.

That’s pretty much it for now.  I’ll be back to regular posting next week, thank you for reading and I hope you like this adorable squirrel!
