I’ve got to love these little sweeties, even if they are feasting on my sweetgrass braid! Sweetgrass is also known as buffalo grass and the scientific name Hierochloe odorata.

Sweetgrass and sage are two of the Native American sacred plants, the third is tobacco, the fourth is cedar. Used in smudging the sweetgrass scent is inviting, and when burned, good spirits are drawn to it. It is burned at the beginning of a prayer, ceremony or cleaning ritual to attract the pure and good.

Well, my little sweeties are good. Now, if they can only learn to play a song or two!
