Labor day

I am sheepish here to post something and wish to be more regular on this space.  Occasionally, I hear from some who miss that I am not more active.  Mostly  ordinarly reasons of busyness and hard work.  However, an agressive lurker made posting here a bit difficult.  That seems to be over. So, an item or two from my summer garden for you.  And, me.  Nicotiana alata or scented tobacco:  I did not expect the lavender bloom here, a sport of such lovely surprise.

I am pressing tobacco leaves of several sorts, wondering if I can make cigarette of some sort of either smoke this fall or to burn in a censor.  Tobacco is a sacred plant, that could be reclaimed in ways more temperate, more graceful than how the leaf is used now.
