A sprinkling of lavender jewels twinkle;
Periwinkles’ are fairies tools,
Wound on earth’s spindles,
Into wedding bedding
With rose quartz runes.
As newly weds sleep,
Their dreams steep
Together so they are bound
I heard very sad news yesterday about the passing of my friend and colleague, Moira Christie. She was aged 77 and had been unwell for sometime. She was a kind, practical and positive person who loved her garden and nature. This photograph reminds me of her.
The last few days have been very strange because my thoughts were of her and all my friends in Edinburgh. Before I go to bed I often look at my Laboradite crystal and on Monday and Tuesday I saw a picture in the crystal of a view of Edinburgh and the Pentland hills, which I have seen so many times from further round the coast in East Lothian. Early evening, my husband heard an owl hooting, then I received the message about Moira’s passing. My thoughts are with her loving family.
The photo was taken on my favourite walk from my home in Cople, Bedfordshire. The dog’s and I got very muddy but we love wandering for miles along farmer’s tracks enjoying splashing about in the puddles
Picked from the hedgerows near our village, the simple foliage beautifully decorates my Yule wreath. Below is my heart of Yule indoor wreath. I love the simple art of wreath making, anyone can do it by walking about the countryside and selecting fresh foliage some with berries to cut gently with secateurs. Remember to thank nature for it’s offerings to you and you’ll enjoy your foliage and berries for the entire festive season. You can also attach pearls and other crystals, dried fruit and ribbons or burlap.
Happy Yule. Happy winter solstice, thanksgiving and christmas when it comes. Love from Lavender Moon. 🙂 🙂
