this morning I woke as the sun filtered pink and orange through the apple trees,
crept out of bed beside my sleeping baby
tossed on a sweater, grabbed my sandals, shears and harvesting basket.
out the door to harvest violet leaf.
gently grab the tops, hold steady and clip at the base (just like harvesting salad greens)
patiently waiting for daddy longlegs to teeter to safety.
this violet leaf goes into our hey mama nursing support tea.
