We shared a sweet Robin’s Circle together this past Tuesday. We started our day off with a game of tree tag. So led us by calling out the name of a plant or tree that we had to touch to be safe. The girls identified Oaks, Pines, Spruces, and lilac’s. After our game we shared a delicious snack together, So and Pinar had thoughtfully brought the girls sweets from Lucky’s bakery (which they had been asking for every Robin’s Circle :).
During snack Pinar shared a story with us about about the connection we can have to plants and how they can protect us, their’s specifically being Devil’s Club. After story and snack we continued our sweetness by gathering plants to infuse our honey with. Heading up to deer meadow and playing sink and fade along the way, we searched for Oregon Grape, Wild Oregano, Clever, and fresh pine to infuse our honey with. The girls were great at identifying the plants and Kaitlin was able to find a patch of Wild Oregano that slipped past the mentors.
With our harvest ready we headed back to the picnic shelter to infuse. Each girl picked out different plants to infuse in their honey and set intentions of when they would open and eat the honey again. We closed Robin’s Circle with a bittersweet goodbye as it was Pinar and So’s last time with us for the season. We all left with honey in the heart.
