A spring walk for cottonwoods


The other day we went for a walk in search of cottonwood buds to make infused oil.

Last year we missed the buds, we went too late.

But this year we were right on time to find the buds at a perfect time.

And a Garter Snake. The infused oil not hard at all to make, and a great oil to have on hand.  I’m excited.
