Although I wasn't a grandmother yet myself, people thought I named the business after myself. When I did become a grandma my new nickname became Granny Janny Legitimate or GJ Legit for short. (GJ Legit will be my stage name if I am ever in another punk band. Another story for another day.)
Some of my favorite childhood memories are picking spring herbs with my Grandma Sayer. I had a special herb gathering basket that she only brought out during herb harvests. I had little brown jersey gloves and scissors to harvest nettles with. If I got stung by the nettles she told me to chew up anything green and put it on the stings. We also gathered dandelion leaves, and mint by the creek. I think of these times and feel so warm and so loved, by not only my grandma, but also by all of nature and especially the plants.
And now, I have three beautiful little grandchildren that I look forward to sharing the plants with. Why just the other day we were out looking for the root children waking up! Happy spring everyone! Enjoy the good earth and the healing plants growing all around your footsteps!
