as i sit, with leveret and magpie playing around my feet (i never knew how entertaining it can be watching kittens play!) and flynt comfortable on the armchair and sandy denny on iTunes, i am thinking of the seed intentions i planted to germinate over the dark months.
its so dark here in this ancient forest, so much darker than this time of day only two weeks ago.
i had to spend some time this morning trimming back some long runners of the rambling rose over the nook or run the risk of impaling myself on the sharp thorns as i make my way up and down the pathway. i didn't take my time however because today is the day our council in, what i consider, their poor judgement, started to fell 5 of the 6 huge Monterey Pines that are just behind calvs house.
i tried to defend them but one person and a handful of signatures on a petition was not weighty enough to fight a government body.
so i could not bear to be in the garden and listen to the chain saws and crack of branches, as a result i have even had the windows shut to save my ears from listening.
instead i have sat and done some research into a new phase of production for the wylde apothecary~part of my seed intentions.
have you set your seed intentions yet?
