Busy in the Kitchen..

They a woman’s work is never done.. But neither is that of man.. As we have both been busy this week in the kitchen and the garden harvesting the ripened produce and putting in the Freezer..  We have shelled around 10lbs of peas weight after shelling, and I have frozen strawberries, Broccoli with stalks made for soups, recipe here   courgettes have been coming our of ears as we have eaten most days with salads both cooked and raw ( lovely if sliced in ribbons raw with dressing ) Beetroots we have had daily in both salads and smoothies…  Potatoes have been on the menu with salads too as  well as lettuce and spring onions..  Not to mention the Curly Kale, Cabbage, and Beans.. oh and few raspberries… and the harvested Garlic.

Below is what was picked just this morning alone..

One mornings pickings from the allotments

Below is a recipe I found in a magazine..  Being as I had all the ingredients I gave it a go and wow… you should really give this one a try… Delicious!

Strawberry and Rhubarb Crumble

Rhubarb and Strawberries

Serves 6:

Ingredients

500g ( 180z) slim rhubarb ( trimmed weight)

225g (80z) golden caster sugar

300g (11oz) strawberries

150g ( 5oz) plain flour

150g ( 50z) Ground Almonds

150g (50z) unsalted Butter chilled and diced

Clotted or extra thick cream to serve..

Have ready an ovenproof dish about 2 litre ( 3 1/2 pt ) capacity, for example a 30cms (12inch) gratin dish.

Preheat oven to 200C /180CFan Oven/Gas 6

Method

Cut rhubarb into 3cm (1  1/4in) lengths  Toss the pieces in a large bowl with 75g ( 30z ) of sugar. Hull and halve the strawberries, combine with rhubarb and arrange fruit evenly in oven proof dish.

Tossing the fruit with sugar

Whiz the flour, ground almonds, butter and remaining Sugar in a food processor. If using a processor stop whizzing before before it turns into dough you want crumb texture.. or if like me rub in the butter and flour until resembling fine breadcrumbs and add the almonds and sugar  and mix in last.

Mixing the crumble 

Scatter the crumb mixture over the fruit and bake for 30 to 35 mins until the top is crisp and golden and the juices are bubbling..

Cooking until golden and crisp

Leave to cool for 20 to 30 mins, its also very good eaten cold, especially with thick cream.. or even vanilla ice cream..

I just loved this with our home grown rhubarb and strawberries.

Rhubarb and Strawberry Crumble with Cream

 Now back to the Kitchen to sort the Peas into bags to freeze..

Enjoy your weekend…

and Be Good to each other ..

~Love Sue~

THE TIME IS NOW!

I have a blogging Friend to thank for passing along this amazing video of a poem in spoken word by its author  Jamie Dunmore.

Listen to his passionate plea as he calls on Humanity to act responsibly and wake up to what we are doing to ourselves and our planet..  I hope you listen to his poem, as you also ask yourself  questions on what we would do and what WE  are allowing to happen..

Thank you David for passing this along…

Also may I take this opportunity to welcome all the New subscribers to Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary..

Now for more time out in Nature as I enjoy this Beautiful Day 

Love and Blessings 

~Sue~ 

 

 

 

Symbols and Symbiosis

 

Have you ever wondered about the Symbols we share?

The Language you’re speaking- Do you care?

Have you thought about the Words and the sounds they make?

Do you digest them and absorb- to intake?

 

Have you ever delved into the History Books ?

Studied Latin or Greek, or been given funny looks

As you compare how words have formed we use today

Did you wonder how hieroglyphs spoke and had their say

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Calendar of Mayan, such marvel of Signs

Which spanned many centuries, how geniusly  designed

The First Nations, the Indians with paintings on the rocks

Symbols of the road we travel with forks and zig-zag blocks

 

I’m sure you’ve seen the spirals from Pagan times and Celts

And the Flower of Life in Egypt along with Orion’s Belt

Celtic Cross Bakewell Church

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you ponder now in modern times of symbols that we see

As we delve into the Past of Mysticism’s Sea

And what about the Symbols that ‘Crop’ up with in a field

Did you never wonder at their messages they wanted revealed

Now moving to your Dreams, what Signs do they show you?

Have you never-ever wondered if they’re giving you a clue

Look beyond your language, Look no further than the Sky

Look beyond the Stars, then pose your question -Why?

See the Signs in Nature, look up the word Symbiosis

Our Earth Mother is talking- Wake Up!- We’re in Crisis!

The Signs of Change are everywhere, when will we wake up to become the change we need to make our lives, and live in balance.When are we going to learn to co-operate with one another for the benefit of all, instead of individual greed!

Are you Following the Signs?

The Bluebell Wood~ Poem and Story

Once upon a time within a wood

Unfolding her wings a Fairy Girl stood

She flew and she sang with the hum of the Bee

Sprinkling her dust to create a blue seaRufford Park

Each flower she tended with love and with care

Sharing their nectar she lived happily there

Blackbird

The blackbird he sang his delight in his Song

The wood their home it was where both belonged

Bluebell Wood ~ Rufford

She’d fly high and low touching each bell

And each one would open under her spell

Bluebell Wood 5

Soon there were thousands, they stretched out for miles

Each one touched by the Fairy with smiles.

Bluebell Wood 2

Now one day a woman alone and forlorn

Walked in the wood all weary and worn

She’d strayed from the path so deep was her thought

Blinded by tears of life’s worries she was caught

Bluebell Path

She rested her back by the trunk of a tree

Closing her eyes, that woman was me

She came to the wood to speak to a tree

The ‘Old One’ would listen, Silence being the key

Bluebell trail

His branches would creak, his bark would feel warm

The ‘Old One’ poured love, and the woman felt calm

The Fairy would sit up high in his branch

Watching the exchange and the woman’s downward glance.

The Standing One in the Bluebell wood

She’d fly by her shoulder and tickle her hair

With each breath the woman discarded her cares

She stood up, breathed deep, hugging her tree

Her thoughts now clear, her mind filled with glee

Bluebells

She turned giving thanks and blinked in surprise

Gasping out loud as the sight met her eyes

Her smile now broad, her heart full of love

The Woman discovers the Bluebell Wood..

Bluebell edge of the wood

And so she returns at May time each year

Feeding the birds, she no longer sheds tears

The Fairies still fly and dance in the tree

And once in a while they visit with me

Feeding the Birds

The moral of this tale is to open your heart

Let Nature heal you, you are one from the start

Discover your breath and talk to the trees

Seek out the Silence; your mind holds the keys

Bluebell wood 6

So let go of sorrow, worry and strive

Let Nature in for she’s part of your life

And if you should wander and stray off track

Remember that LOVE will lead you straight back..

When Nature comes Indoors…

Just a very Quick post to say thank you for all your wonderful  well wishes for my special day yesterday.. I have still got some of you I need to catch up with.. But here is a taste of the beauty that surrounded me yesterday… As I share the joy of Nature that came into my home..

 

Basket of flowers

Basket of flowers

 

Yesterday was a foggy start and then it turned to rain… But it didn’t stop the flowers from smiling as they kept arriving.. as Nature decided to come indoors.. 

We just have to take a moment in quiet thoughtful pose

To enjoy the bliss around us and be thankful I suppose.

Do we ever take a moment to give our heartfelt thanks?

For somewhere people are fighting and living with enemy Tanks.

 

So Bless those quiet moments of peace within your home

For you never know when it could be shattered,

 and darkness soon enclose

So enjoy the moments of each bright new sunny day

As we say goodbye to rain clouds in this first few days of May

Love and Blessings Sue

 Have a Beautiful Weekend.. See you Next Week .

 

 

 

 

 

Earth Day 2014

I have been so busy Living Life I A Spring Day in the Woodsalmost forgot it was Earth Day today until Shamanictracker  left a comment upon my last post, so many thanks to you.

So I quickly browsed on line and what awareness is being put out for this Earth Day 22nd April.  I came across several video’s this first one is to remind those of us who live in the cities to try and make our cities ‘Greener’

Secondly I looked at what I had blogged about last year on Earth Day.. I had written a poem with photos and links , so for those who are new followers to Dreamwalker’s I thought you may like to take a look HERE at my posting of my thoughts last year when I wrote about Gaia…

You can find out the History of how Earth Day began in the 1970’s by visiting the The National Geographic page HERE  where you can find out more about Air Pollution  You can also go to Survival International and see what is happening to the darker side of Brazil, as money is poured into the World Cup this year, see how its Indigenous peoples are suffering.

And thirdly we can all change the world by simply altering our ways of being.. Learning to live in harmony with each other and ALL living things.. Learning to respect and take care of our environment..

Sending you all Love and Peace..

Happy Earth Day everyone

Enjoy Life, Enjoy Living!

Unity~ Be At One.

Photobucket

Be at One with yourself

Be at one with the world

Be at One with Nature

And see your life unfurl

Close your eyes and imagine

The beginnings of a New Earth,

And Open your eyes to your beauty

Breathe in and give Birth.

divider

For you are One and part of the Whole

Not a separate Unit , but a Beautiful Soul

United within the One Divine love

And part of that cosmic hub.

Share your love along with your Light

And Rejoice in Gratitude

Use your sight

To see a world in Beauty and Grace

divider

You are stronger than you think you know

Spread a little Love where ever you go

Shower your peace and sprinkle your heart

Into the rivers of life send a ripple a spark

Be Calm, knowing all is well

Keep breathing in Peace for inside it dwells

divider

Know you are where you are meant to be

Open your eyes

Come on now See

For we are ONE and it’s time to Unite

Stop all your hating, and judging and strife

Find your heart and clear out your mind

Seek out yourself

And Wisdom you’ll find

divider

Let go of torments and allow the Joy in

Come on now people

It’s time to begin

Be One with yourself

Be One with the world

Be One with nature

And Let the Universe Spin

For the Spiral is turning and

Peace will Win..

Green Grow your Garden Oh!

Green is a combination of the colours yellow and blue, each of which brings its own unique energy to the overall feeling of the colour green. Garden 1

Blue brings calm and peace, while yellow radiates liveliness and high levels of energy. Like a marriage  between these two very different colours, green is a unifier of opposites, offering both the excitement of yellow and the tranquillity of blue.

It energizes blue’s passivity and soothes yellow’s intensity, inspiring us to be both active and peaceful at the same time. It is a mainstay of the seasons of spring and summer, thus symbolizing birth and growth.

Green is one of the reasons that spring brings so much excitement and activity. As a visual harbinger of the end of winter, green stems and leaves shoot up and out from the dark branches of trees and the muddy ground, letting us know that it’s safe for us to come out too.

My Garden in the past

In this way, green invites us to shed our layers and open ourselves to the outside world, not in a frantic way, but with an easy going excitement that draws us outside just to sniff the spring air. Unlike almost any other colour, green seems to have its own smell, an intoxicating combination of sun and sky—earthy, bright, and clean.  Like new mown Grass..In the best-case scenario, it stops us in our tracks and reminds us to appreciate the great experience of simply being alive

Green balances our energy so that, in looking at it, we feel confident that growth is inevitable. It also gives us the energy to contribute to the process of growth, to nurture ourselves appropriately, without becoming overly attached to our part in the process. Green reminds us to let go and let nature do her work, while at the same time giving us the energy to do our own

May you each continue to Grow as Mother Earth pushes us all up through the layers of negative Dust we have accumulated, to find our own new shoots of Green Growth.
