Oh, yes. The mild days and cool nights are upon us, as daylight softens and nighttime sparkles with a million stars! This is one of my favorite times of year in the garden! The tomatoes are ripening to juicy perfection, the dahlias and roses are smiling in sunny coolness (finally!) and the salvias are bursting with a final splash of wild fall color! The symphony has reached its crescendo and the melody is sweet and high. It is autumn bliss here in the garden, and how lucky are we to see, feel and taste it all...
Whew, we flew out of the Lions Gate on a super stream of Light! We couldn't miss that one even if we tried! And all this Light is changing the game. We and Mama Gaia are evolving and it is a wild ride indeed. Awfully messy like childbirth always is. And amazing too. And painful. And real. And the doorway to New Life, this childbirth is. Every morning as I meditate out in the Garden Portal, I often see a spinning circle of Light with every single being on the Planet holding hands and limbs and leaves and fluffy feet, all in Unity within that spinning circle of Light!! And beautiful Mama Gaia is there too. And today I saw our beautiful Golden Earth birth out of the center of that spinning circle of Light! Wow! The New Earth. The one we are creating together. And we are birthing and it is hard at times. Please send your blessings into the fires and the winds and the floods and all the other necessary cleansings being used as Gaia removes the tendrils of dark history she has carried for so long so she can shine in the Light. Send your love into the humans and animals and plants and rocks and trees and all who are suffering in the midst of these cleansings. Hold everyone on the Earth dear to your heart so the beautiful Light you carry can touch and transform them. The darkness has held this beautiful Earth for so long and it is now blinded by that same beautiful Light you carry. We are birthing!!
The month of September is always a dear one to me as I celebrate my birthday, my wedding anniversary and then the beautiful Autumnal Equinox, a time to bring in the New Cycle of Life, Nature's New Year. The gardens are beginning to shine as the intensity of the Summer Sun wanes and the nights are cooler and full of stars. Have a beautiful month everybody! And see you in the garden...
Welcome to August and the Lions Gate Portal, which completes on August 8th. With this passage, we will move through the most intensive Portal of Light we have ever experienced as humans in a physical body. The Earth is experiencing the same and we are all expanding with the Light. We are birthing our world from the density of a 3D Matrix into the brilliance of 5D! Hang in there everybody, as it's a wild ride to get there! And the Garden of Eden awaits us...
Welcome to July!
Now that the fresh green of Spring has passed, we find ourselves in the midst of summer. Summer means heat and that's what brings the next wave of garden blooms! The daylilies, gladiolus, dahlias and zinnias are popping in a rainbow of colors and the fruit on the trees are ripening to a sweet perfection. And, not to be topped, the veggies are growing too with vines full of ripening tomatoes, pepper plants bursting with colorful fruit, and basil leaves ready for summer pesto. It's a glorious time in the garden and we are forever grateful. Have a beautiful July everybody! See you in the garden...
The beautiful warm days bring a bouquet of summer flowers to the garden,
and I am forever grateful for the beauty!
It is truly divine.
Happy June everyone!
Summer is here!
As we celebrate the "day of the flowers", it's a good time to reflect on the marvelous array of beauty that surrounds us. Flowers are everywhere and they are simply amazing! With colors and patterns and scents designed to attract their pollinators, they are a marvel of creation. I'm reminded of a quote by Iris Murdoch that says it perfectly, "People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us!"
Happy May Day to all of you as we celebrate the Flowers, the Faeries and the beauty that surrounds us!
Today is the first day of March and the Daffodils and Crocus are dancing in the sunshine! In fact, the Crocus petals look like beautiful skirts of brightly colored satin and I can just see the Flower Faeries wrapping themselves in the petals and swirling about the garden! We're celebrating the longer warmer days as we dance into spring. Let the flower parade begin...
Today marks the cross quarter day between winter and spring in the Northern Hemisphere. The daylight is lasting a bit longer each day, and the animals, especially the birds, are noticeably moving about and singing or squawking more. Our resident Red Shouldered Hawks are circling and calling above the house every morning now. They're giving us the first hint that spring is indeed coming, and they'll be busy with nest building soon. In the garden, the spring bulbs are just beginning to peek their little green heads out from their cozy beds. Each year they delight us-and the bees-with the first splash of garden color, and we are forever grateful! Our beautiful Earth is turning her face towards the Sun once again and, as gardeners, we are ready! In the Celtic tradition, they called this day "Imbolc", meaning "in the belly". We are moving from the belly of winter into the beauty of spring! May you all have a wonderful day, as we celebrate the return of the light. Blessed be!
The New Year has arrived, ripe with the potential for an amazing year full of creativity and New Life! We recently received the crystalline blessing of snow here in the high desert, and we are so grateful! Beautiful white, cleansing crystals of light. The perfect gift from the Devas, and now we are fresh, clean and new. Our Garden Portal was shining in her white beauty! May this be an amazing year for all of us! Many blessings in 2021!!
