Spring arrives at the Medicine Trail

It’s been a bit of a wet spring here in Colorado, which is actually a great thing for our medicine trail.  In the fall, we seeded a lot of the areas and now we are finally seeing the results!

The trail is still a bit underwater, and we’ve determined that we now have some wetlands.

But, in the areas we seeded we are thrilled to report that we have strong, healthy plants of catnip, motherwort, valerian, St. John’s wort,  yarrow, mullein, cleavers, horehound, wild geranium, burdock, marshmallow, comfrey and black cohosh.

The trees we planted are also doing well, with willows, buffalo berry, chokecherry, hawthorn, horse chestnut.  Unfortunately, our white oak did not make it.
