daily musings of a vintage addict * I am totally obsessed with all things vintage * trying to keep up with my past...and sometimes ordinary everyday life

My Photo
Name:
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

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!
