☘︎︎ On Caltrops

The nuts of the water caltrop (Trapa natans) have been littering the banks of the Hudson River since it was introduced as an ornamental species is the late 19th century. Now invasive and choking out indigenous river plants, the caltrop's devilish looks have proven predictive. But the caltrop never meant to harm its environment, and ironically is struggling in several of its natural habitats. So instead of making a villain of the caltrop, let’s appreciate its striking form and, while we’re at it, spend a few hours each season on the banks of the Hudson picking up seedsand pulling weeds.

☘︎︎ Silver Care

Sterling silver likes to be kept close, maintaining its shine with the oils from your skin.

It's strong and can handle the everyday roughness work and leisure can bring.

Silver does oxidize with water, perfume, and time, so if you like to keep a high shine take care to avoid the first two and give it a polish once in a blue moon.
