In the Garden











We have been enjoying every bit of weather gifted to us recently, from searing hot sun to long days of rain to thunder and lightening storms that have lasted hours, keeping everyone awake into the small hours.
I dared to dance a brief naked salute to the Goddess in one of these storms, hoping the darkening sky would hide me from my neighbours. I was repaid with a wonderful feeling of lightness, wellness and content.
The garden is booming from this warm rain, the broad beans, cabbage, lettuce, beans, courgettes, pumpkins and so many other goodies are growing before our eyes, snaking up sticks, spreading across the earth and looking so wonderfully healthy and happy.
O delights in the mud, building, creating and digging, lining toys up for mud moving duties that keep him busy for hours, days.He is covered at the end of these mammoth sessions, his hands thick with earth, his clothes barely visible beneath such a thick coating but his smile is huge, beaming through the muck, his eyes sparkle, his lessons from Mother Earth learnt.

Mud and sun and storms and dancing - all so spirit uplifting! Beautiful days, dear friend. That sunflower house is great. Happy day to you!

Beautiful! And it's always worth the intense scrubbing and bathing when you know they've experienced such dirty magic! xo m.

Such pretty flowers and they don't seem heat stressed as ours do sometimes in summer.

Loving your little ones little hideaway :-) I bet that was really liberating dancing naked in the rain - not sure I would have the guts :-)

How delightful playing in the mud is! All mine love it. I love the idea of a naked rain dance, I'm sure I couldn't pull it off without being caught though!!!

How wonderful to dance like that in nature!! Summer is such a special time - especially for little boys who love dirt. xxxx
