"Come back to these same plants to observe how they change through the growing season. Notice how the seeds form, who pollinates the plant, what bugs or animals live on or eat the plant, how the plant looks at dusk, at dawn, after a rain, during drought. Watch." — Joyce A. Wardwell, The Herbal Home Remedy Book
