I want to thank every one so much for the outpouring of kind words about our little "vapor rub" mishap. She is thankfully well and probably ready to do it again. There were even a few of you how have had some experiences yourselves.
I did find it funny how many people told me their grandmother's used to take a spoonful of it for a sore throat. My mother told me my Grandma used to do the same thing mixed with sugar... and that was in the old days when it had turpentine in it!
What kind of craziness is that?!
Who even thinks of doing that?!
My niece's said my daughter kept licking it off her hands, so we have no clue how much she actually ate, but I will tell you, I almost am curious now to taste it now to see if it really tastes bad or not.
Is that wrong?
I did get out to the yard the other day ( the day before "the incident") and I know it's called Bee Balm ( Monarda) and I have a lot of it,
but it was so loud that I could hear the buzz across the garden.
Can I tell you, The bumblebees were mutantly HUGE!
I have a little section of my yard by the Bee balm I refer to as Meadow Lane
So I used this technique to make a new "old" sign for it in French....
Welcome to Meadow Lane.
