Temizuya
Japanese believe that it is wrong to go near the Kami in a state of impurity, so
every shrine includes a temizuya or chōzuya (a place for purification with a water
trough and ladles for washing hands and face) near the entrance.

The Healing Properties of Plants
The British Library in London owns an ancient ‘leech book’ (a medical reference
book) with herb recipes to prevent diseases. It is thought to have belonged to a
Worcester physician called Bald, who probably lived in the 800s CE. The image
on the left is a blackberry bush from the leech book and on the right is a book
written in 1633 called The Herball or Generall Historie of Plants.

The Secret Garden
“If gardens and fresh air had been good for her, maybe they would be good
for Colin.” pg 123.
“The chief thing to be remembered, she had told him, was that Colin was
getting well – getting well. The garden was doing it. No one must remember
about him having humps and dying” pg 184.
“Colin leaned on Dickon's arm and privately Ben Weatherstaff kept a sharp
lookout, but now and then Colin took his hand from its support and walked a
few steps alone. His head was held up all the time and he looked very grand.
“The Magic is in me!” he kept saying. “The Magic is making me strong! I can
feel it! I can feel it!” It seemed very certain that something was upholding and
uplifting him.” pg 197.
