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

Michaelmas


September 29
is apparently the Christian feast of St Michael the Archangel
St.Michael is seen to be the protector against the forces of dark
oh, I know all this is not everyone's cup of tea
but I am so drawn to the Saints
& love to read about them
The feast is all centred around the harvest
which
living in the southern hemisphere
really doesn't apply to me at all
as we are heading right into our spring
- goose seems to appear on the menu quite alot
but umm - no thanks
........ legend has it
that St Michael drove the devil out of Heaven
and he landed in a patch of blackberry bushes
In Simple Abundance
it is suggested to have tea
with scones and blackberry jam
and this to me sounds just delightful!
So today
I am taking myself to a little deli in Leura
where they sell the most delish jams
and buying myself the biggest jar I can
as well as some King Island double cream
And then to celebrate living down here
where it is spring instead of fall
- I am heading of to the nursery
and buying a michaelmas daisy plant
* then I will come home
put the kettle on * make myself a lovely cup of tea
* put my gregorian chants on
then sit & thorougly enjoy myself
- no one would understand

Oh I just love listening to Gregorian chants etc, Robyn have you heard other music such as medieval type of music? It's so relaxing and imaginative if that makes sense. I second you on the Saints thing, I find it fascinating too.

Peggy ! you MAKE blackberry jam? wow, here, they are considered a weed and any growing along the road side are poisoned so we can't take the chance and pick any. Yes, I wish we lived closer too :) what fun we would all have.

We pick blackberries every summer. Have blackberry pie, blackberry cobbler, blackberry jam and even blackberry icecream. My mother in law cans blackberries so she can have them in the winter.. I just freeze me.
