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"

Hopi Prophecy

~it didnt happen~

well the sky did not clear yesterday and it turned really chilly.

i had planned on getting some things up on etsy but found my 'camera' (my old htc phone takes a better photos than our real camera!) needed charging and then i realised i had about 6 brooches that still needed finishing.

so my plans had to change somewhat but today new stock will be appearing on etsy!

so when i finish this i shall be taking a whole heap of photos and start listing.


again it is a chilly, grey day but the weather forecast on radio 4 last night assured me...yes they assured me! that it would clear up today.
i hope so!


the search for the grrl-cave continues.
we realised we have a few things to work around in our garden,we have a specific size we have to keep to, there is a manhole cover which we have hidden by way of a wooden tub with fountain in...this means we need a shed with a door in the side so the fountain can remain, and it has to be in the position i mentioned a few posts back because of well established trees and plants.

its a difficult search to make because there are so many sites out there selling sheds and i thought that maybe the word 'shed' is the wrong word to use!
what about hut?
Workman's hut?
garden office?


well i happened upon a very good site offering two affordable (just!) options for me offering the right size and a side opening door and floor (one site offers the shed with the floor an optional extra!)

as we have have the stonewylde gathering in may and our trip to yorkshire in june the grrl-cave will hopefully be put in in july/august...oh and did i tell you i am off to wimbledon in june?

i am!

every year my sister and i fill in the form to enter the ticket ballot and this is our second time of getting lucky...a few years ago we had centre court tickets for the mens semi finals, the year raphael nadal won the final and this year we have centre court tickets for the first tuesday of the championship which is men's and ladies singles and doubles...so hoping we get to see raffa play again!

this time however i shall be taking our own pimms and strawberries and cream.

~well time to take flynt out and get ready for my diabetes 'MOT'

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