my heart is filled from encountering so many green friends here in the bellybutton of the world.
in our courtyard: comfrey, dandelions, plantain, roses, shepherd´s purse (true casa de las matronas, no?), nasturtiums, rosemary, geraniums & parsley.
around town: muña (a mint like poléo mint, somewhat of a cross between pennyroyal and spearmint), calendula, nettles, hollyhocks, sweet lil´malva neglecta, random plots of potatoes, lamb´s quarters, & snapdragons. the town is both verdant and litter-strewn, a strange combination. in the hills, nearly every available field and terrace is planted with corn or potatoes.
will post more on my hospital experiences when I am feeling less tired and better able to organize my thoughts.
