The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

~a garden for the fae~

i am so in love with our garden right now~from a neglected, smelly piece of land its increasingly become a place where it is easy to see the unseen fae that share this land with us.

*i love to sit there and just look and listen to the birds*

we came back from a weeks camping on sunday, a week when the temperatures had reached the hottest this year and the plants had no water~but our garden had taken on a wonderful, slightly over-grown aspect.

all the plants are happily growing side by side and as they grow up and outwards they have started to mingle into a wonderful multi-colored community.

the photos really do not do it justice~its hard to see and take in the slightly wild, overgrown look that has grown up of its own accord...

It really is a lovely time to be outside, soaking up nature isn't it?

oh I love it.. and just as I was looking at it, I thought of how it was much like Daisy's kind of garden style.. and right at the end of the post, there is a sweet-pea.. daisy's nickname for her daughter..
your garden is beautiful, absolutely! xo

Looks great, thanks for sharing. Time that I take and post some pictures again of our own little garden.

All things share the same breath~the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
