Moon-like Flowers for the Eclipse

I had to share these white beauties for today’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. The first is “Dinner Plate Hibiscus” and the second, a “Casa Blanca Lily.” This Fall, I’ll be planting an ancient “Madonna Lily” to join the Moon ladies in our yard.

I’ve been taking advantage of this eclipse’s almost exact trine of my natal Mercury. Lots of Lyme book writing! Wishing you and yours the most productive use of today’s energies, however that expresses itself for you.

I have another, far more magical and accurate looking photo of that birch tree and surrounding garden, which I’ve unsuccessfully tried posting for weeks. In the photo you see above, most of the camera shy beings are out of sight. No matter how hard I try, I cannot get that other photo to load. If you want to know what the garden really looks like, imagine the above photo with extra shimmer and glow, and the hanging branches creating a “mist” even on sunny afternoons. The photo above is flat compared to the life force energy radiating from that tree and the plants and beings around it.

We have way more birds in our front yard this year due to all the fun perches available now. I see gold finches, cardinals and robins throughout the day. On a recent morning, Continue reading

This clematis was almost dead when we moved here, and now it’s been healthy and blooming for weeks. Delphinium came out today:
