I visited with a yard-tree this morning between the rain showers. A friendly eastern red cedar-friend.
Just so you know, it is actually a juniper.
Many Native American cultures believe the smoke of this tree will expel evil spirits before conducting a ceremony, such as a healing.
Animals use the bark shreds in building their nests because the aromatic oils repel insects. We are immersed in the wonders of nature. We too are wonders. 💚 Peace
