Compost, Critters and Fritillaria

Another update from the Wild Kingdom of Faery Gardening. This morning features hopefully my last truckload of compost and soil. I ordered a lighter blend and 1/3 less than last time, so I also hope to finish today rather than in tomorrow’s 87 degrees! We shall see. I had planned to get the delivery yesterday with its balmy high of 75 degrees; however, I had a backlog of email sessions Continue reading

More Mantis and Marmot Magic

After last week’s unusual animal sightings and interactions, the bizarre fun continues. The praying mantis who “reported for duty” last week is the friendliest insect I’ve come across. He (and it does seem to be a he, judging by size) landed on David’s arm on Sunday, and yesterday, I felt someone looking at me, only to discover it was my little mantis friend, hanging out on the cosmos! He said hi and then continued on his way. Today, he landed on my arm while I was planting strawberries and thyme. We both startled each other when I jumped, but after I apologized for flailing my arm, he turned his head and nodded at me.

David took down the dog run wire that had created a no-fly zone for hawks and eagles, Continue reading

Last Month for Email Sessions for Awhile

Just a heads up now that I’m getting more settled into our new home, yard, and the new rhythms of life here. For May, June and July, I’ve been experimenting with a $77 20-minute email special, and I mentioned this special might become a regular offering. It still might at some point in the future, however not at this time. I might just occasionally offer the email options as a special when I feel called to do so.

All that said, here’s the monthly special:

JULY 2017 SPECIAL + OPTIONAL ADD-ON

This special can be used for medical intuition, past life work, quick check-in’s, follow-up between sessions, or as a way of addressing your needs sooner than my phone availability would allow. Also, please see below an option invented by Continue reading

Bluebird Hill Farm Owner Extends Essay Deadline

My friend Heather alerted me to this essay contest to win a farm. For anyone who has had the dream of running an organic farm incorporating permaculture principles, here’s a chance for a committed couple (of any type — spouse, mother-child, siblings, you just need two people) to win the land and farm house. If you feel so led, the deadline has been extended until August 1.

Client News

Aspiring farmers have until August 1 to vie for this small enterprise in North Carolina.



June 29, 2017 (Bennett, NC) — Norma Burns, the architect/farmer who intends to gift her 13-acre organic farm in Bennett, North Carolina, to another aspiring small farmer through a convincing essay, has extended the deadline for submissions to August 1. (Background information to follow.)

June 1 was the original deadline. As that date neared, however, Burns received a flood of questions and comments on the farm’s Facebook page from people who had only recently learned about “The Gift,” as she calls it. And because she has not yet received the number of submissions/entry fees needed to pay off her mortgage so she can gift it to another aspiring farmer, she decided to extend the deadline — in accordance with the rules set up on the website www.essaybluebirdhillfarm.com.

Norma Burns introduces a young…

Garden Update: Calling, Planting and Growing an Ecosystem

I’ve had an interesting week in and around the garden! The groundhog “training” continues, with one of the groundhogs content to munch on clover and behave in a very respectful manner. The other groundhog has behaved more like a teenager: “You’re not the boss of me! I’ll eat whatever I want and like it!” Opening and closing the dining room window startles him back into his hidey hole, but this guy was determined to get into the backyard bed.

On Wednesday just past dusk, really too late for a groundhog Continue reading

Timeline Splits and the August Eclipse Gateway: Sandra Walter

A few people have asked me about the August 2017 Eclipse, so I wanted to share this Sandra Walter video (below). This complex video might make more sense to people who’ve had Timeline Tune-in and Tune-ups with me. If this (or any post, for that matter) is not for you, then please don’t worry about it. I have a wide variety of blog readers, and I know this will be important information to some of you, even if it sounds boring or crazy to others. 🙂

Sandra shares a lot of the collective timeline information that I sense, as well. I particularly appreciate her discussion of “bifurcation” as “choice” rather than “good” or “bad.”  I reallllllly appreciate her discussion of Earth gridding Continue reading

On the Receiving End of a Bouquet

I think the FedEx guy who delivered these beauties was as excited as I was: “You’ve got FLOWERS! Someone sent you FLOWERS! Oh, look at that smile, someone sent you FLOWERS!”

Too funny, as he has no idea how many bouquets I’ve made for others and given away in person, as well as virtually via texts to loved ones or shared on this blog. It’s nice to be on the receiving end — a housewarming gift to David and me from our sweet Madison friends, Brian and Ingrid.

And yes, they do smell heavenly. Crazy Plant Lady may have (slightly) restrained herself at the garden store within walking distance, but she is getting her rose fix after all. 🙂
