I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

vintage gardening ~ August 7th

ahhh, a day spent in my garden * does wonders for my soul. I got out into my garden by 10am this morning ~ cutting down a few out of control shrubs , weeding and pruning. Then I put another seeper hose in a garden , weeded the garden then put a layer of lucerne hay onto it. I have decided to go back to using the lucerne ~ after trying pea straw & sugar cane mulch ~ the lucerne is just so much better. It is a little more expensive but the results are worth it. The worms love it and it puts lots of nutrients into the soil as well as conserving the water.
I also spent about an hour in my vegie garden, generally tidying up..in readiness for spring vegie planting.
I finished about 3pm and am just thinking about having a lovely bath with my rose petal bath salts.....then home made pizza for dinner and a movie!

I might just do that today. We had a good soaking rain yesterday afternoon, into the night and things are good and damp. A perfect weed-pulling time!

Oh, there is nothing better than the feeling of 'a job well done' is there? Especially if it was somewhat physical work. I like the way tired bones feel when you've been busy in the garden - it's good for the soul too I think. I love getting dirty in the garden - all that earth reminds us of our place in the world. Your daughters party sounds like such fun!
