Wow! I love it at this time of year when our little local shop ‘busy bees’ , (the kind of shop you can go in and ask for absolutely anything) sells beautiful primulas. The colours and varieties are so vivid and bring a wonderful flash of colour to a garden that hasn’t quite burst into life yet.
They are all potted up now and cheering the gateway into little bs garden. Everywhere looks so bare at the moment. But…
There’s life brewing and I watch with eager eyes each day what is happening in gardenville.
I have a huge hawthorn bush that shelters us all year round and showers my flower bed with a blanket of nutrient filled, frost protecting little brown quilty leaves from November time. I’m very grateful for that but come February, I can sense movement beneath it and I want to see what’s happening so out comes the rake.
And reveals life, promise and hidden beauty.
The trees are budding, the birds are singing and so is my heart! How wonderful to be outside in the cold, crisp but sunny days… feeling the minuscule temperature difference. I even took my woolly hat off the other day! It’s permanently attached to my head until March !
Speaking of heads… I’ve been experimenting on little b
This is called a ‘pull through braid’. Good old Pinterest showed me what to do. I’ve just ordered some dark elastics to disguise them a little better. Look at that hair! Thick, curly and gorgeous.
Her hair is wet here but we tried a braided crown. I quite like it!
Now little b has a bag of marbles like most kids do. Bs are slightly different though in that 80 % of them were dug up in the garden!
Over the past nearly 8 years I keep finding them spread out all over the garden which was turfed. I’ve removed the turf to make a border and they are in there! It’s a mystery as to why.
I found another one today! Excuse the muddy hands, the subterranean marble was a little mucky upon its excavation.
I read recently that if you find a stone with a white stripe over it, it’s good luck. B picked this one up near Gunwalloe in Cornwall. I spotted it outside today and brought it inside to clean it up and charge it up. It’s a beauty! I’ve put it with my crystals.
I’ve had my crystal collection tucked away in my wardrobe for far too long. I bought a lovely dish to display them in and have given them a nice little spot to live in in the lounge now.
I’m hoping to do a crystal course soon with the lovely reiki master that did my last attunement. I really love crystals and thought my little friend would enjoy rummaging through them and learning about their names.
I’ve put this little piece of carnelian to work already. I’ve had some Japanese cherry blossom seeds in my fridge for a good six months. It’s time to take them out and wake them up! I really hope they sprout. I’m hoping this little carnelian will help them on their way.
Whilst we are on the topic of the metaphysical, I bought these oracle cards in the summer. I really like them. The pictures are beautifully illustrated and little b loves to look at all the kind people in them. She particularly likes the archangel Michael card.
I picked beautiful Mary Magdalene today. So as it reads… I thought I should share!
Well, what a varied post… we’ve covered a lot there.
Have a great week ahead ❤️
