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

~of mushrooms & grated apple...~

we have had to lovely days to walk flynt this week
yesterday a large military aeroplane rumbled over us heading, i was reliably informed by swampy, to hurn airport.
we went up to ober heath where we get big sky


over night we had had very heavy rain, which i slept through with the help of ear plugs.

there have been lots of assorted mushroom sprouting up...

and plenty of fairy rings, although with some you have to look closely...

this was my lunch today...grated apple with blue cheese atop swampys homemade bread...

 i was in the bookshop in lymington last week and was flicking through River Cottage Veg and came across this recipe and just had to try.
its gorgeous...but if you decide to try make sure you get the sharpest apple and strongest blue cheese!
i only had a mild Devon Blue and it just wasn't strong enough.
well i have been busy creating things for
and making plans with a very special alchemist but you will hear more of that later!
