I know spring isn’t officially here, but it sure looks like it. I love wildflowers, I love flowers. Just looking at them can make you so happy. It’s a welcoming sight after winter.
I decided to share some interesting facts about flowers that I thought you might enjoy reading about. The cornstarch-like powder known as arrowroot is derived from the plant, Marantha arundinacea, and is native to India. It was used by indigenous people to draw out the toxins from a poisoned arrow wound. Today, it’s used to thicken pies and jellies.
Another interesting fact; hundreds of years ago, when Vikings invaded Scotland, they were slowed by patches of wild thistle, allowing the Scots time to escape. Because of this, the wild thistle was named Scotland’s national flower.
Saturday, March 16 Verdi will be having a community yard sale and BBQ. Mrs. Lina Huizar is the contact person (some people think I misspelled my name, lol, it’s my mother-in-law). It’s not too late to call for a space. The fee is $10. You still have time to clean out your closets, tool sheds, garages, etc. There will be all kinds of items, vintage, antique, homemade, baby clothes/toys, tools, furniture, books, baked goods, peanut brittle, etc. The time is 9-3 p.m. Call Lina at (830)570-5902 for more details. Charlie Huizar will be selling BBQ plates and Ermelinda will be selling her homemade pies, yum!
