A Weekend in Healing Earth

Hello  my lovely friends.. This is the time of year that I spend more of my time getting my fingernails dirty in our Earth Mothers rich soil.  Now the milder and better weather is here, I am to be found more in my Allotments than I am here within the blogsphere of WordPress..

So I hope you will all have patience if I take more time visiting or replying to your most welcome comments..

To see what we have been doing the last couple of days.. There are some pictures within my  Garden Blog Link 

Have a Wonderful Sunday and a Beautiful Week 

~Sue~ 

 Switch Off! And Tune into Self!

I’m not hooked into T.V. soaps with Drama’s surreal

And I try to detach from the Media’s Squeal

I’m not attached at the hip to my Mobile Device

Like some who walk, looking up once or twice

Tranquil Corner of my garden

Tranquil Corner of my garden

 

I know too well all the pain some go through

And I’ve added my tears like the rest of you

I’m not helping the world if I wallow in gloom

So instead I create to help my world bloom

Seeds

Seeds and allotment plan

I plant and I sow and reap what I give

Sharing and caring is how we should live

If we see all the horrors of violence and greed

Maybe it’s because our attention is focused on these

Planted with Love

Planted with Love

 

If we planted more Kindness instead of mistrust

And put people first before the possessions we lust

Appreciate the NOW, and Let go of FEAR

Stop judging each other, and hold ALL life dear

Preparing the greenhouse ready for planting

Preparing the greenhouse ready for planting

 

Instead we’re conditioned by the Ads and the Apps

To purchase- Things- as in debt more collapse 

A virtual world, we are hooked and controlled

Another statistic, we’re boxed in as we scroll

 

Spring Bulbs opening to the Sun

Spring Bulbs opening to the Sun

So if I go missing from time to time

It’s because I’m enjoying this life of mine

So go on now, look up, and switch off your Device

And Embrace your loved ones and start living-Life!

This next week here in the UK has promised to be fine weather.. So I will be spending more time in the garden and the Allotments. So if I am late getting back to any of your comments this is the reason. 

Wishing each and every one of you a Wonderful Weekend and a Joyful week 

Enjoy!

~Sue~

Nature does Her Thing.

“What a joy it is to feel the soft, springy earth under my feet once more,    
to follow grassy roads that lead to ferny brooks    
where I can bathe my fingers in a cataract of rippling notes,    
or to clamber over a stone wall into green fields that    
tumble and roll and climb in riotous gladness! “

 Helen Keller

Remember last Autumn when the old compost heap on the allotment looked like this?

At the Back of the shed the old rubbish heap is going to be levelled. This is where we intend to grow our Butternut squash next year. As the allotment next to us just put his squash on old soil and left them.. They were 3 sizes bigger than ours.. So here they will have room to spread out to their hearts content :-)

Then Hubby got to work and started to dig. First digging the rectangle bed out which I was going to set flowers in and my apple trees in. 

Dug over Rubbish heap

He then dug out the compost heap and levelled it  using the old stone boarders from our front garden.

If I had wanted these nasturtiums to grow through the top of this broken old fire onion chimney they most likely wouldn’t have.. But just look at the transformation of the old compost heap..  You now see the new  overflowing compost heap contained behind the abundant Squashes and Courgettes. 

Well now it looks like this.

Some times you just have to let Nature do her Thing.

Picture Update~ Grow your Own

Hello my patient fellow bloggers.. I am currently over this weekend working my way around to those who have left me such thoughtful responses over the last few weeks..  As I endeavour to catch up with many of your posts..  

How is your Summer going?

Mine has been very productive as well as restful in-between gardening, I have been resting, reading, oh and I finished off a knitting project also. And of course I have been keeping my eye on the ball in Wimbledon as the Tennis Season is in full swing.

I am learning to self Nurture!

I knitted this little Bolero too which is for a 3 to 6 mth old.  It didn't take long to make.

 You can find out more of what I have been up to when you click this next photo below of some of my harvest and other crops that are growing. 

It will take you to Dreamwalker’s Garden

I Promised I would update you on how the Allotments were growing.. All is coming along nicely. And as you can see, one little girl was delighted to collect the first dug new potatoes and bag them for dinner.

Everything is growing well now..  its just a matter of keeping the weeds down.

Oh and remember our little friend who came to visit and then disappeared some time ago.. Well he was back today. I managed to sneak up on him the second time.. The first time I saw him I walked right under the hanging nut feeder this morning as its positioned under an arch of trees where he was doing his balancing act .. I glanced up and I do not know who jumped first, me or the mouse.. As he jumped back into the conifer hedge. 🙂 I waited a while and he came out again. This time I crept up and he tolerated me and I snapped this picture  until I got too close  then he disappeared again into the hedge. 

He was as curious about me as I was about him.

Have a wonderful weekend all of you.

When the Universe speaks, I Listen! Part One

Sometimes the best laid plans are not made by you, but are the direct guidance of the Universe. Have you ever had that feeling where you just know you have to surrender to the flow and see where it takes you?

Well that’s what last week felt like. I had promised my WP friends I would be back to visit them last weekend .However the Universe had other plans.

 

DSC01864My own plans were simple ones.. I needed a few days Computer Free to catch up with some unfinished projects.. The first one being a little jacket I made for my Daughter’s Step Daughter’s new baby girl. So technically that makes me a Step Great Gran!  My other knitting project I also finished. 

This was a cardigan for myself.

The other projects centred around the allotments and we had already planted seeds in seed trays which were sprouting. But the allotments needed digging which Hubby did, and I set too and helped plant the onion and shallots.

Remember this photo from last year where the old rubbish heap and nettle patch was going to be dug up? Below!

 

 

At the Back of the shed the old rubbish heap is going to be levelled. This is where we intend to grow our Butternut squash next year. As the allotment next to us just put his squash on old soil and left them.. They were 3 sizes bigger than ours.. So here they will have room to spread out to their hearts content :-)

Well this is what it looks like now on the photo below.

Another job which needed to be done was to paint the sheds with wood preserve. You can see Hubby busy doing this  one and I did the other. This shed brings a whole new meaning to Lean-too shed lol, It only houses sticks, wire and cloches and nets etc.

The next thing was to clear out the old Strawberry Bed of old plants.. We planted new shoots in the autumn .And made a start to clear out the old Strawberry bed. This will then be the new home for some of my flowers for cut flowers.

In the mean time I wrote a poem in collaboration  with Aquileana about Helen of Troy. and emailed her it just before my laptop was set for a scheduled Health Check.. That’s when the Universe thought to have other ideas about my plans..

I mentioned one of my keys was sticking to the computer guy, so the kind man said as it was insured he would send it away.. And So that’s why I have been absent longer than I intended.. But you see the Universe had a plan all along.. And as to that I will reveal in my second part to this post..

Stay tuned!  

And its good to be back..

 

Re-connecting to our Earth Mother.

“Every part of this soil is sacred in the estimation of my people. Every hillside, every valley, every plain and grove, has been hallowed by some sad or happy event in days long vanished.”

The above quote is part of Chief Seattle’s original speech of 1854, as reported by Henry Smith in 1887.

Rufford Lake

We spend so much of our time indoors, especially in the winter months, as we become so focused on the busyness of our lives. We become disconnected from our Mother Earth. 

Geese gathering looking for food

Geese rushing to be fed

These two followed us some distance

These two Geese followed us some distance checking we had given them the last of the grain.

It is this time of year that the lack of sunshine can bring on the doldrums of feeling low in spirit  and the  SAD syndrome  And even I was feeling depleted in energy as I missed connecting to my garden and going for walks over the last couple of weeks.

Winter in our  Allotment

How our allotment plot is looking at the moment.Looking tired but still full of Goodness yet to harvest. 

I was commenting recently with a fellow blogger as I said the majority of those in cities are now so disconnected to Mother Nature, and this is often what is lacking in our lives… We spoke on how much better we always feel when we connect back with Nature, from either walking or spending time near water or trees.. 

Snowdrops in the wood

Snowdrops in the Woodland Walk

Snowdrops

Much of what we truly need can only be found under the naked sky, alongside tall trees, on open plains, or in the sound of running water. As our energy re-connects back to the whole of which we are all a part..

Feeding the Birds

Feeding a Chaffinch along our walk with bird seed

Being in nature connects us to the earth, grounding us as we walk, unhindered by concrete, upon her. Surrounded by other living beings, both bigger and smaller than we are, we remember that human beings are simply one form of life in this vast universe.Rose Hips.. Natures own Vitimins

We instinctively know that nature is good for us on many levels. Even if you live in a city or find it difficult to travel to a forest or the countryside, there are many ways to reconnect with nature.

                                      

Rose Hips a natural source of vitamin C. 

When you step out of your door each morning,  allow your senses to absorb your surroundings.  Breathe deeply, listen to the wind, or it may be the rain upon the pavements.. So many of us run around not wanting to get wet… Yet the rain is cleansing and is the Life Giver to this planet, smell it on the grass, and if you have no grass, watch the circular ripples in the puddles. See the reflections in the water and watch the droplets run down your window panes..

 Autumn Fruits Rose Hips

Just pause for a moment and take in Nature’s beauty and colours, and remember each breath you breathe Nature has provided we  so take our breath for granted. Allow your senses to embrace the gifts Mother Nature has to offer us every day. As you spend time re-connecting with Nature she is also healing you, that is why we all feel so much better for a walk in the fresh air away from the concrete pavements.

( And preferably watch where you put your feet and don’t fall )

Big smiles..

Many thanks for all your wonderful well wishes.

I am feeling much lighter of Spirit.  

I Will be catching up with you all very soon..

Love and Blessings

Creative Captures.. Happy Halloween Everyone

You would think that Retirement would lend itself to giving you more time . Yet as my Hubby said when upon retiring several years ago he wondered how he had found time to go to work?.

Life in the Dreamwalker household has been busy busy to say the least since I took the plunge and retired.. I still have lots of catching up  to do with your beautiful blogs . And for all those who have taken the time to visit my posts I am in the process of returning your kindness..  But for now I will leave you with a flavour of what I have been up to mostly  in picture format.

So along with alterations around our home, we have been putting the home garden to bed for winter and sorting out the allotments. Hubby moved a row of raspberry shrubs as we learn by our mistakes as they grew I got nicely tangled in their tendrils.. So more  space has been created between them and a support made for the Logan Berries..

Before 
Fruit Bushes, Black and Red currant and Raspberries,  this is the view from the sheds looking back up the garden.

  After.

I have also been busy in the evenings as those darker nights draw in. I am in the process of Knitting a Baby shawl which I was requested to knit. I have about another 15cms to go then it will measure  a metre in length.. I then have to knit a boarder which will then be sewn all the way around it.. So still a ways to finish.

 And Lastly.. wishing you ALL a HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Below is my Granddaughter who over her last few visits has been busy with me Baking and tasting
