Garden Update: Late Summer Colors, Crops, Kundalini and Moldavite

I’ve been waiting for the asters to bloom before putting up a new garden update. Finally, they did this weekend! Last Friday brought such chilly temperatures that I actually needed to turn on the cozy fire while writing in my morning journal:

Those cold temps meant one struggling tomato plant gave up the ghost and got replaced by more chard, spinach and golden beet seeds. The lettuce I planted a couple weeks ago is also enjoying the cooler weather — good thing, too, because all my other lettuce has gone to seed!

More Pretties

David and I are on the receiving end of another bouquet, and it’s just too pretty to keep to myself. Thanks again to Mitch for the beautiful belated housewarming gift. After having given away hundreds of bouquets since early 2013, these flower deliveries underscore a persistent theme of receiving — already planted trees, previously landscaped yard, huge flowering perennials that hadn’t yet found their strength in Goshen. And huge bouquets picked and arranged by someone else, then brought to our door. This one features lots of orange for my half-Dutch hubby, too:

Delphiniums, asters, carnations, lilies, Gerber daisies, roses and what are those little pink beauties? Anyone know? I’d love to plant some. 😉

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. 🙂

Well, the roses got the memo: “It’s June!”

Quick Updates and Flowers

Things are traveling at a whirlwind pace, but all moving along quite well! I find this very true in our own lives, and I hear equivalent reports from clients, friends and family. Once people experiencing any challenges notice that each challenge presents a chance to clarify, confirm and commit to the new, an energy shift emerges, turning the entire process into a blessing.

This happened to us last week, as initially, the sellers of our new home indicated they would not vacate by the Friday settlement date. A flurry of prayers, sacred chants, emails, texts, visualization, and a Reiki Healing Attunement apparently activated a much more positive timeline. Literally everything except the house itself changed overnight, including the individuals and situations involved — reworking not only to a fully vacated house, but also to major sync winks and uncanny blessings the whole day of our closing. Several “full circles” made everyone marvel at Divine guidance, and we just happened to meet the previous owner to the ones selling us the house.

She’s the now elderly woman who planted all the trees and flowers. On Friday, she just happened to drive by to check out the yellow irises she always loves to see bloom, whereupon she noticed the “Sold” sign and an open garage door.

She waited for us to come outside, introduced herself, gave us her phone number and offered to set us up with her former arborist and any information we’d like to know about the park like setting she created. She expressed sheer delight that another gardener is moving in, since Continue reading

Garden Firsts: Columbine, Iris, Sea Kale, Rhododendron, Roses, and the Portable 2017 Garden

Stunning columbines this year! It is crazy windy today, so some of these photos aren’t as clear as I’d like. Too pretty to keep to myself, though. 🙂

Flowering sea kale, is an edible perennial that looks good all season. Even better, you can eat every single part from roots to shoots to leaves to buds to flowers:
