A Glimpse of Jewelweed
I've been receiving some requests for pointing folks to a picture of jewelweed, which I recently touted as a wonderful cure for rashes and burns:
"Just a thought that popped in while reading your page. You had a suggestion about using a particular weed to relieve an insect sting. It would be helpful to make a link to a picture of the plant."
"In your latest page, you talked about using jewelweed to stop poison ivy. Any chance you might be able to send a photo of this plant? Or perhaps send a contact for some site that may be able to?"You bet.
But because Web sites sometimes seem to disappear unexpectedly, I thought I'd provide a couple of links, just in case one of them goes away.
These sites may also serve as a jumping-off point for additional research if you want to learn more about this amazing plant.
You'll find jewelweed photos here:

Nowhere else in the world are we closer to the Creator than in the garden. Well, at least we're closer to His creation.
