She Who Wears Many Hats
Welcome to Rue and Hyssop! I am your wild and wanderlusty (totally a word) hostess Jen. I live in a gorgeous Valley in British Columbia, Canada, where I spend a good portion of my days in my little gardens, wandering the hills, wrangling cats and nieces, fiddling with herbs and attempting to stay out of too much trouble.
This blog is meandering, like the valley rivers I follow on my daily walks. You'll find posts about gardening, wildcrafting, spirituality, farmers markets and festivals, folklore and more. I have eclectic tastes and myriad interests, so hang in there while I steer you through creating herbal goodies, wax poetic about the seasons, get all giggly over pretty vegetables, show you fab finds on the interwebs, and chat about my personal practices and goals in body, mind and magic.
Rue and Hyssop enjoys featuring some wonderful folks on the web (check the sidebar and the "blogs/links" page,) as well as giveaways including (this year's 3rd annual) the "Great October Book Giveaway."
There's something for everyone here at the blog. Pop in and put your feet up. Coffee is always on and a bottle of one of our Valley's famous wines is always chilling. Cheers!
(Sometimes still known as "Rue" - I answer to anything, darlings!)
PS - you can check out some of my herbal goodies at my shop Three Cats And A Broom.
