How does your Garden Grow?

Just wanted to update you how things in the garden are progressing, some days I have been so tired I have slept in the afternoons, especially in this heat we are not used to this time of year.. It’s definitely growing weather for weeds which have invaded the garden along with aphids, white fly, and a bug which flew in from Europe which is spreading fast throughout the UK.  To view all the news and pictures  please click the link HERE   On my garden blog.

 

 

Harvesting Goodness

Harvest time is upon us as we reap from our gardens what we have sown. It’s wonderful to see something that you planted from a tiny seed that grows and matures to a full-grown crop.

And haven’t you ever just stopped to think for a moment about those seeds. Just how miraculous they are. Each seed so tiny, yet they know exactly how to grow. Each tiny cell splitting off to become a leaf, petal or fruit. Just as our human cells know which cells form toes and teeth.

Each plant perhaps relying on natures helping hand as the bees pollinate creating new seeds for next year’s seasons

I have so enjoyed this Summer. It started out life here in the UK as being one of the wettest June’s for a long while. It was very cool to start with. Yet despite the cold start Nature catches up. And even though our sweetcorn took 3 attempts to sow this year it too caught up and now we are harvesting the ripe corn cobs

Life is a little like planting. We get to harvest what we have sown. 

I came across a wonderful post from Erika today whose own post was about the seeds we sow in Life.. in her post here entitled  The Challenge of Growth 

How true too about those seeds as Erika  describes them to break down and collapse before they open and bring forth their new growth. I invite you to go read her excellent thoughts on how we ourselves grow through our challenges.

As I view the world today I see many of our old ways now collapsing, they have to if we are to change.

Everything comes in cycles, Day follows Night, Seasons Change. We look back through history and see how our world has gone through its different ages. It seems we are now in the technological age. One at the moment I seem to in conflict with, big smiles as it seems me and technology are not getting on as well of late.

Not everything in our garden’s can be rosy all the time and in full bloom. But with Love and attention to what is important in our lives as we give our attention to the things which matter. We then reap that which we sow

I ask myself why is that me and techology seem in conflict right now – Could it be the Universe is wanting my attention elsewhere?   I have got much thinking to do at the moment and choices to make.  But I know what ever choice I make, it will be Ok, for there are no right or wrong roads, for all roads lead us to our destinations. It’s just sometimes we can detour off the path and for some they can become lost amid the jungle of choices that in this digital age can distract us from the true seeds we need to sow. Which often are the most basic.

To Care and Share.

We may have forgotten some of  the things that really matter in our lives. As the distractions of this material world have never been greater as they grab our attention and steel our energies and lower our vibrations.

I invite all of you who may be feeling of a low ebb and stressed out with the world right now to reconnect with your inner seed. The one that beats life into you day in and day out. Go into the HEART of Nature and start to listen to your own Heart.

It is patiently waiting for you to understand that all you need do for it to grow and expand to the Light, is for you to nurture it with the best nutrient ever given to man.

LOVE!

In Gratitude

Tranquil Garden

Sitting in the garden, as Blackbird sings her tune,

Summer is here, as we welcome the month of June

Foxgloves are in flower, as the Bumblebee explores

And new growth is around us, this time I just adore.

 

The fountain in the garden is tranquil, hear it flow

As peacefulness surrounds me, As I drift in Sun’s warm glow

The wind chimes they do tinkle, and the breeze just gently blows

And the pigeon in the tree top her cooing never slows

 

A neighbours cat is cooling, laid out beneath the shade  

Oh how I love these tranquil, peaceful lazy days.

The grass appears much greener, or is it just my eyes,

For when we are contented, nature gives us our best prize.

 

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 last day of May,

The above poem I wrote some time ago. The rain clouds are still here, but I choose to find the Sun in All that surrounds me.

May we all of us count our blessings and send out our thoughts of love into the world for those who find themselves in need of it right now.

I am so grateful  right now and thankful  to be able to go within my Gardens , for the healing they bring, and the Inner Peace that I find within them.

Have a beautiful new week,  and remember

“Live

And Work

but do not forget to play,

to have fun in life

and really enjoy it”

‘The Dawn of Change’

Where’s there Muck!..

Digging In

Getting Stuck In. ..

 There is a saying here in the UK.. I am sure some of you have heard of it.. ” Where’s there’s Muck there’s Money.”

Well I can assure you I didn’t find any Gold Nuggets, but this Muck is pure Gold in that it is rich with nutrients the Earth needs for next years growing.

And Like our gardens, so too our Minds and bodies need to be maintained and offered food for thought..  All too often we can rush here and there and neglect to care for ourselves. 

We need to remember to clear away the clutter and the debris which our minds all too often collect. As we  ‘Weed’ out the Muck of those negative thoughts which stops us operating at our best.

All it takes is a shift in our awareness, and to be mindful of what we are projecting out. I all to often hear people moan and groan, and yet when we compare our good fortune to others around the world, I see nothing much to complain about, and plenty to be grateful for.

Next years seeds

New Kidney Bean seeds collected for next year .

If I plant something in the shade, and over water it, it soon shows me its not feeling well, and will soon rot and die.. Likewise if I plant something in the sun and forget to water it, It too will whither and die.. 

We need balance, in all things as well as in our lives . And so at times our Lights can get blocked, dimmed by the shadows of negativity which filters through into our lives from  various outside sources.

That is what I always do, connect to Mother Nature, a change of scenery helps alter your perspective on Life. 

And  that’s just what I have been doing all week.  As I clear out, dig in and Create..

Knitting Waistcoat

New waistcoat I started yesterday Wednesday

 

But we must also remember to take some Quiet time for ourselves, relax and find our centres.. The Source is always there for us, but we can often forget to connect, as we divide our energy in too many directions. So remember to step back into your Own Stillness, and reconnect back to your own Inner Light..

And  so that is what I am doing over the next few days.. I will still be popping up to comment and may even pay you a visit..

But If I don’t, you know I am being Mindful of Myself..  🙂 

Love and Blessings to you ALL.. 

Love

Update’s of Garden.

Dear friends, as promised I will update you on what has been happening in Dreamwalker’s Garden

I am slowly working my way around you all, and hope to have an interesting post on Sunday which is part of Linda’s  Time Machine Blogging Challenge 

There are still a few more dates if you are interested in taking up Linda’s challenge.. at the above link  

Mine will be posted on Sunday.

In the mean time  

For this moment is all I seek

As conscious thought in unity greets

My heaven on Earth is held in time

As I grab my pen to create this Rhyme

Oneness is all I feel

As into my garden I gaze surreal

Tranquil thoughts as nature Blends

My thoughts of Peace are what I send

 You can also see what I have been doing with my Begonia’s 

HERE

And what I have helped to build

HERE

Love and Blessings

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.

Revamping Garden Furniture~ Nature breaks

Making the most of Sunny days in between showers is what most of us in the UK are used to. I have to say this week has been topsy turvy weather-wise, with Sunshine and Showers at at times high winds. which reeked havoc in some coastal places such as Devon and Cornwall . 

So in-between the showers this week I have had a project on going. I decided to repaint the garden furniture, which must be at least 15 yrs old. It was looking very shabby and by the time I had scrapped yet more lose paint off it, it was looking even more worse for wear.

I have to say painting these three pieces look me longer than I thought. and by the time I finished my arm and hand knew about it 🙂 

But the finished results were well worth the discomfort and aches for a few days.

We have been busy in the allotments and I took down the nets from the loganberries as they were about all finished and gathered in. I gave half a net to hubby who had ideas for the small fish pond

Subakin and Goldfish

 The wind meant the leaves were coming off our evergreen bushes fast and furious as old leaves died. So the pond was needing to be cleaned most days from the debris.

So Hubby made a frame using the fruit net to help as a barrier. The Fish also love the screen as they now no long submerge when they see our shadow. So we get to see them, and they don’t get a fright from us.

Hubby made this frame to stop the leaves from falling in the pond

All creatures great and small 

Spiders have been making their presence known to me all week. They no doubt have been prompting me in my creative skills,  And not only the spiders but I had a lovely long visit on my washing line from this lovely butterfly  The Red Admiral.

I have also had some time out to meditation and over several of them I kept seeing within them a face.. So yesterday I sat down with sketch pad and tried my best to capture the image of the face that kept popping into my meditations.. I have yet to find out his name.. but his smile was enough to reassure me all is well in my world.. I feel he is Tibetan .. So here he is

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend as I am taking a Nature Break ..

See you all Very Soon

 Nature’s Colours

 

 

Colours are all around us, but do we really see.

We take every thing for granted, and act so seriously

Have you ever stopped to think, if the world was black and white.

Close your eyes for a minute think! What if you had no sight?

Never to see a tree full with shades of green.

Never to know the blues of skies and ocean seas.

 

 

Come with me on a journey, back to nature and discover

Open your eyes see afresh full of colour.

Collecting sacks of yellow is our busy bumblebee.

Making lots of honey in his hide amongst the trees.

Surrounded by the flowers, whose colours are so bold?

Colours of a rainbow, now there’s your pot of gold.

 

 

Rose red, primrose yellow, oranges and apples green.

Tell me, who created all these lovely scenes.

Dazzling bright, smoothly blending, colours of the spectrum.

Every colour you can imagine is Gods almighty emblem.

Eagles circling with effortless ease, around a snow capped mountain

Reflecting sunlight upon a lake. Cascading like a fountain.

 

Wildlife in our forests before they cut the trees,

Tiger, Bear, and Panda and swinging Chimpanzees

Icecaps snowy beauty of Seal and Polar Bear,

Icebergs that comes crashing in the warming sunny glare.

 

 

The fish deep in the ocean, the salmon in the stream.

All full of beauty, much better than any dream.

So when you next open up your eyes.

Look and SEE you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

At the beauty, which surrounds us, and it’s absolutely free.

For which I pray to thank our Lord, most gratefully.
