Yarrow

Mystical Yarrow.
I Ching. What will you foretell?
The fate in your stars.



Here is a link to information about using yarrow sticks/stems to do I Ching. I will collect sticks in the fall.







I am linking this post with Floral Friday Fotos and Haiku My Heart~ Check out these cool memes - lots of great people and interesting posts!

    1. Thanks - they are not particularly fragrant. I use them in big bouquets of lilies.

  3. Love seeing those big bunches of flowers... in different shades too! Does the same flower transition into different colors. I have a rose which starts out as whitish pink and goes on to become dark orange!

    I planted red yarrow, two years ago! They will probably bloom in about three weeks. I love them!

  17. Love your photo and the idea of doing iChing with the sticks in the fall. I guess I haven't had personal experience of yarrow. Is it fragrant? Does it have medicinal properties besides just being beautiful?

  18. Ohh yes! I have the plant oracle of druids and yarrow is one of the cards also! I can't wait to see pictures of your new oracle system! :)
