It would very much depend on where you lived, I think. We live in a 'non-representative' part of the state, and that skews how I see the experiential over-view of the entire country at times. Nutty people like that MGT women are giving a lot of other nutty people all sorts of "ideas" and the repercussions seem to be popping up here and there. I might have to curtail focus on looking for connection points. It's not very good for me mentally or spiritually.
Yes. The entire experience was a heart-center opening, and I instinctively ended it with a visit to this flower. Only put together the color significance when I took the pics.
3-11-84 Jimmy looks like a man with a plan, doesn't he?? Literally rubbing his hands together. loosely germane because I wore the crown of flowers all day and the more dignified part of the evening. Also Mo asked for pictures after I wrote about our wedding day some time back.... Continue reading

Widget probably wasn't involved even if she was, right?

The closer I get to my solar return, the more I feel the push-pull nature of my astrological birth chart, which is bowl-like in form. Of course, there's an 'official' definition for what that means but what I've come to experience within my life's flow is that it very much... Continue reading

Don't worry, there's normal stuff, too. This maple tree is turning so far ahead of schedule, I'm assuming it's my personal 'hello' from maple-land this year. Ever since the later phase of perimenopause, I've found myself in close company to a maple tree that turned to its autumn foliage really... Continue reading

it was an extremely quiet thing for me ... but then, later, a reverbing gong-like after-effect to it. i loved that it was something big within something relatively tiny

All these photos are from yesterday. And this time, the sun was hitting the Elecampane leaves from the west rather than the east. I keep trying to save seeds so I can start several more plants but I've been rained out consistently beyond the two summers I was entirely too... Continue reading

Thanks, Dee. This is day four of me doing this - am challenging myself to keep it going through my birthday at the end of the month. Trouble is - I now think the additional/perfectly fine pics I took with my phone look like crap. And I am not about to give up the convenience factor so this is obviously a fluid process.

am kind of unofficially challenging myself to take my "good" camera outside every day. today is day 4 of me doing this. The plan is to keep going until my birthday on the last day of the month. Just to see how it changes my eye. [since a couple people... Continue reading

a friend who wishes to remain nameless supplied me with some gorgeous zinnia plants, by way of select seeds, after I so mindlessly threw away my two packets of seeds. I have found self-forgiveness within the joy of watching these plants develop buds and, so far, one full flower: The... Continue reading

We got about an inch and a half of badly needed rain last night. Also tons of lightning & thunder. I went to sleep awash in ozone and a state of open-tuned receptivity of negative ion soothing and healing. When I got up I went out with the cat almost... Continue reading

Miles sent around some very cool how-to notes about gathering healing plant material, and then preparing herbal remedies immediately thereafter. After I finished commending him for how much his written communication has improved since the dive began, I asked if he'd like me to take some pictures, since I was... Continue reading

Water in the evening with that sweet spicy scent rising all around has been quite enjoyable. Somebody who's been out and about more than I have told me she hasn't found any yet at the garden centers. Too bad it's unfeasible for me to leave a six pack of the seedlings on your porch!
I really enjoy the bright and joyous color range of later spring flowers.

first of all, i've written this post inadequately three or four times within the rest of yesterday. But this morning I woke knowing how to begin and continue in a way I felt authentically befitting and heartfelt. Then I searched for an audio link to include in the opening sentence,...

I love this ongoing eclipse season of the Beauty Way

it is both comfort and ongoing teacher.
It happened just before 7 this morning in the side pocket gardens. I stood in front of this bush - blooming in her full mature glory for the very first time, and I thought how much I would be willing to wear a crown of lilac flowers in multiple colors.... Continue reading

The season's first sweet rocket blooms. They are nicely dispersed throughout the field edges from a single plant I brought from he old place. Now this medicine spirit is one of the Queens. some of the growing-in-confidence flower alchemists have been co-creating with Celandine. pro tip: this is a wonderful... Continue reading

now I definitely have to find a pic of the flower head in my archives. Because this is the one I keep coming back to as well, except the flower heads are all wrong (they are green not white and far more sparse) and it's also more like 4-5 meters in height when in full flower.

About 24 years ago, I purchased the above Angelica species mis-labelled as Angelica gigas. I did't realize as much until 5 years ago when J got me two properly labelled Angelica gigas plants for mother's day. Since then I've searched online but never find a species having these type of...
