- Rosemary—planted somewhere near an entrance for protection
- Witch Hazel—of course, Witch Hazel in a Witch's Garden!
- Mullein—the stems of these were once called Hags Tapers, used to light the night
- Mugwort—3 witchy plant uses: A) part of a modern witch's dream pillow, this goth-y plant also gets cred as B) an alternative 'smudge' herb, instead of white sage, esp. for Euro-based/heritage witchy folks and C) as a tobacco alternative to smoke
- White Sage (Salvia apiana) Unlike the sage we use to flavor turkeys, these
- Bella Donna—as much for the goth-y plant name, as much as anything else, lol
- Apples—Long associated with magic, from Snow White's apple, & the Golden Apple of Greece
- Corn—no more spooky plants than corn sheaves, tied up & displayed for #Hallows/Halloween (Hallowe'en, short for Hallows evening); also the husks can be tied up & made into corn dollies/poppets
- Grapes—because wine!
- Pumpkins—because jack-o-lanterns!
- Squash—because pumpkins are squash
- Roses—from the Magician/Mage/Witch I tarot card: the full red roses of manifestation, buds for becoming
- Lilies—from the Magician/Mage/Witch I tarot card: white lilies for intention (I did not know this association before researching the card)
~Also doing #cleanTober: organizing supplies & harvests, for my #apothecary-in-progress, while #upcycling various containers, & streamlining #storage
Did I mention I love October & Hallowe'en, even if it does mean 'winter is coming'?!
