I mentioned in another thread that I was going picking Arnica today and was asked to post pics. So here is one. Sorry about the size. I haven't figured out how to reduce it yet. Not sure why it is sideways.

One jar is for oil and the other for a tincture. They were quite beautiful which is surprising with the amount of heavy rain we have received over the last few days. A gorgeous day for picking. Warm, dry and sunny.

Now onto dandelions. I want to make the Dandelion Maple Syrup cake from Wild Remedies.

    Arnica always reminds me of one of my favorite old John Wayne movies, "McClintock!". Being treated with "tincture of arnica' after a brawl was euphemism for, "We're going to go get drunk and get over any hard feelings." There are a lot of valuable lessons in old John Wayne movies. "The Shootist" should be mandatory viewing for every young man.
