Asphodel Plant Study
Plant Study at Ceratonia Herb Garden with Daisy and Cory of Ceratonia and friends on the magnificent Asphodelus ramosus, also known as King's Spear and Royal Staff. We made a deliciously sweet flower essence with the therapeutic qualities of fearless uprightness & strength, clarity (straight to the point), protection, relaxing into being true to yourself.
