Way up high!

Romeo mimicked our way of eating berries

Drinking forest elixir from stumps

Introducing Romeo!  He is a rambunctious little orphan raccoon that I met last summer while completing clinic hours with herbalist, Christine Dennis.  After long days of clinic, we went for walks throughout the forest and this little guy would tag along.  These are the most suitable photos in my collection that reflect something Irish; a little raccoon, not much bigger than a leprechaun, drinking elixirs from old stumps, mimicking us as we ate berries and frolicking in the forest. I feel lucky to have met this charming little woodland fellow.
