Sugar Skull Princess & Blush Pink Roses
Moody, simple & spooky Halloween decorations this year ~ black & white sugar skull art & tiny roses from my garden in a black lace vase create some Halloween glam. What's your mood this Sunday morning, ten days away from Halloween?
The last of my garden flowers before a frost came in last night. Nature gives me such joy that living in the city can be quite painful for me. Every place I live I end up investing a lot of time and my own money to grow a garden. .
The soil here was so bad that last year’s plants even ran out of energy halfway through the season. This year was much better thankfully - now three years in. I’ve had to mulch leaves, put in organic matter, haul in compost and manure and balance with minerals and teas. That so, I will still mulch in leaf matter now and more compost again next spring. .
But it’s all worth it! We had a cottage-like fairy garden that was fuller and more vibrant then ever - enough so that I was able get my husband to sit out there and enjoy it this summer. The goal is to have mostly perennials by the time I leave that will feed birds, butterflies and bees throughout the season. This year I put in more prairie in a tiny strip and I’m exited to see what it turns into next year as it fills out! .
Tending the land is literally the most rewarding thing I can do. I come in direct contact with creation, with the plants and the plant devas, in turn making contact with my own inner movements and voice as I remember-tune to the subtle in the plants and allies. I feel like I am entering into an old relationship that is just patiently waiting for me to come home to it - it’s rote and part of my history that I don’t have to learn it but just remember. Working the land clarifies why I’m here. I am a part of the land - we all are. .
