Disclosures and Policies


This page is where I tell you all about how I am complying with the FTC guidelines of disclosure for paid and/or sponsored content. Aelfrida’s travels and exploration may be sponsored by the kingdom, but her chronicler requires upkeep. This means that there will be ads on these pages, and if you click on them I will be compensated. Or perhaps someone has paid me to put one of their ads on my site.

My hope through this blog is that I can provide useful and insightful information about trees and plants and the many ways they can be and are used in our lives. There may be links within posts that will take you to where I purchased certain products I’m writing about, and I may be compensated with a commission if you purchase anything from said links.

I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites.

Sometime in the near future I may start to receive products or be asked to do sponsored posts. I can promise you this, I will always tell you when I have received a product or have been compensated to write a post. This is the most important part (to me at least, probably not the FTC); I will NEVER EVER keep, or review, or promote, or accept compensation for ANY product that I do not believe in. Period.

Re-use Policy

Now, to turn the tables. I work extremely hard to provide you with wonderful posts and images. Please do not take any of my content and use it for your own. That’s just wrong, not to mention illegal and considered a copyright violation. You MAY, however, use one image from a post as long as you link back to and give proper credit.

About Me

About Me

My interest in plants started young. While most of my friends were playing with Barbie or dreaming of horses, I was out in the fields of our farm creating imaginary villages and caching collected seeds, roots and herbs against winter need. When I discovered the library and field guides, I realized that I had found my passion- the interaction between plants and people. While my caching habits have switched to saving more useful plants, some things don’t change. I still …
