Mountain Moments

Mountain Moments | Growing Up Herbal | I'm sharing some of my favorite moments here on the mountain lately. Come check it out!

When we first bought our house up on the mountain, we spent a year fixing it up before we moved into it. During that year, I wasn’t sure how I felt about this place. It was run down. It was outdated. It was overgrown. It was further from our family (and Dean’s business) than we really wanted to be. But it had potential, and we were ready for a place of our own.

Over the years, this place has become home to us. It’s peaceful. It’s quiet. The mountain air is cool and clean. The plants are abundant. The kids can play safely. And we’ve come to rely on one another more. 

We’ve been here for almost five years, and as we continue to work on project after project, this unkept mountain slowly unfolds into a place I want to share with others. So today, I want to give you a glimps at what I see every single day when I go about my daily live here on the mountain. I hope you enjoy this glimpse of my home.

The woods are full of paths leading to awaiting adventures. This one leads to the boy’s sand pit, a mini-pond filled with bugs and tadpoles in early spring, a mountain laurel playground, and a huge field for exploring.

Wild plants are abundant here in the forest. Flowers are rare in early spring so I’ve been collecting ferns, grasses, herbs, succulents, and what flowers are blooming for some lovely bouquets in my house.

My wildflower seeds are begining to sprout. I can’t wait to see what kinds of flowers these bring!

What is it about old, moss-covered piles of wood? I just love them so! The feel mysterious and magical all that the same time.

I planted an ostrich fern last year, and she’s spreading her green fronds in every direction right now. I can’t wait to get some big fiddle heads off of her at some point. Yum! In fact, I’m so excited that this plant is doing so well, I bought 3 more roots and had my husband plant them out in the woods so more will grow in the wild.

And moss-covered rocks. They are plenty of them scattered here and there across our land. I feel the same way about them as I do moss-covered logs.

Thanks for taking this walk with me today and letting me share some of my favorite things about the moutnian with you today. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and be sure to follow me on Instagram for more glimpses of my daily life!

Blessings, Meagan
