Labrador Tea in Natural Setting


Labrador Tea in Natural Setting

Here is a nice bunch carpeting the mosses of the permafrost. Lovely in bloom, covering most everywhere but the hillsides.

Lol....! It has been called Hudson Bay tea and trappers tea. Usually in northern regions but all over the globe. You can make a tea and its used medicinally, but sparingly. It is a little toxic to the nerves for general use.

a nice wilderness. So beautiful. The other side: DonĀ“t You fear the bears, wolves and others????

Its beautiful wilderness, and I've had my moments with the Grizzly. He's not so bad, minds his business. No black bears, those are meaner. Moose are the most worry. But I am rather fearless as far as wilderness animals....lol. Cougar back home, thats a little scary.

But do You HAVE Cougars? And Moose - what do they do??

No cougars. Moose are very tempermental and too big to stop. Their first reaction is stomp you into the ground. Most dangerous when the babies are out in spring. Like a horse they'll turn back their ears, you should get out of their way right then.
