Sharing a smattering of perennials still clinging to life in our October garden.
With the frost coming soon, and with winter’s impending arrival, the garden will soon be put to bed, the last of the leaves will be raked, (oak trees shed leaves a little later), so the time has come to look back at all that was accomplished this year, and to anticipate & plan new projects for next spring.
In the meantime, I’ve harvested many seeds, (still yet to be packed and labelled), steeped rosehips, lavender, and arnica flowers, (among others) in oils for our botanical apothecaryproducts, and have collected an assortment of herbs for our small batch vinegar & spice rubs. A busy time of year for everyone! Gathering for the winter is what fall is all about. Now it’s time to offer gratitude, and just enjoy the garden for what it offered me this past year
Autumn is the time to cosy up with a warm cup of herbal tea! The seasons have shifted gears, Karen has harvested all kinds of herbs from her garden! Wall Flower Studio’s herbal tea line is growing! The harvest was just in time too, as it’s now sweater weather here in Ontario.
It’s time to enjoy the harvest, the changing colour of leaves, and to settle ourselves into the cooler weather that fall offers.
As noted we have an abundance of herbal, green and chai tea available! (See our partial list below). Karen is happy to create custom blends for her customers, too! Visit the shop to see all of the creative and soothing tea combinations with which one can indulge.
Can’t get to Minden?… Shop online via our Etsy store, too. 🙂
Our hours have changed, like the seasons do, so we’re sharing the October and November open times at the shop. We are now closed on Tuesday & Sunday.
This of course doesn’t take into account special events or workshops, and our December holiday hours will expand.
Check back for more on that in late November, and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, too. 🙂
