Yarrow! Jackpot!

This afternoon I went to the True Value and the West Seattle Nursery to look for a few household things and check out the garden sale at the nursery. I pulled into a curbside parking spot and lo and behold, there among the fuzzy cat’s ears, a JACKPOT of yarrow. Wild, dirty white, medicinal, beautiful yarrow.

I harvested the leaves and flowers, washed ’em off at home, and they’re now drying in the sun.

I think I’ll make a tincture, because I don’t have a ton of olive oil on hand, but I do have a ton of distilled white vinegar. I don’t have any Everclear, though, which would be perfect! 🙂
