To The Mountain!

So lovely! Happy Lughnasa Weekend, Colette and all who celebrate this first harvest festival. I stopped FaceBook in December 2011 and Twitter in 2009 and still have a beautiful online community of my own choosing and loving. However you feel led to engage with the world and its news, do remember that Nature is the great healer. Enjoy the bounty and the beauty — offered to all of us from the Heart of the Mother, the Strength of the Water, and the Light of the Sun. Big blessings!

Bealtaine Cottage ~ The Oldest, Independent, Permaculture Smallholding in Ireland! Conceived, Designed, Planted and Worked by One Woman!

    That was a cool dip in clean, clear lake on a hot sunny day, thank you! What a magical land Colette has created….. and perhaps I’ll take up chewing cat nip! Animals, especially cats, are so very good at what they do! Love, B.

    What a refreshing walk through the current Bealtaine cottage! Like a virtual vacation. Collette has done such a wonderful job with that property. She’s created a true sanctuary from what was once ravaged land. So glad she decided to stay there and dream a new dream, funded by the private blog.
