A lunch side dish today: dandelion scramble. I made this with tender, young dandelion leaves from the garden, local eggs, and local onions. Yum, yum! I also harvested some dandelion roots. They’re drying in the dehydrator for future use.
Stones from a pet cemetery near my parents’ home. A well in the pet cemetery. Activity from the seed tray! I love seeing the seeds move , then roots! Chive blossoms! In March! Wow! What a lovely sight.
Leucocoprinus birnbaumii growing in my rosemary pot. My research says they won’t harm me or the plant. I’m a little concerned about the spores getting on my herbs, but I guess that’s why we wash things, right? They’re also supposed to indicate healthy soil. More lavender flowers. Most of my herbs are inside now. It’sContinue reading “Around the Garden”
I’m still healing from my recent oral surgery. I feel as if I might have some temporary (I hope) nerve damage in half of my face. The right side of my lips and chin are very numb. I also can’t open my mouth very far. I attempted to eat some more solid food today butContinue reading “Ditzy Druid Doings – Healing, Sewing, and Gardening”

I’ve spent a majority of my free time cleaning my art room (it was a terrible mess, really…), crocheting, watching “Firefly” with myContinue reading “Ditzy Druid Doings”

We’re lucky in that, unlike our ancestors, most ofContinue reading “Learning From My Garden”
One of the biggest challenges to living a Pagan life is integrating our spirituality into our everyday lives. It’s so easy to put it off until the high days and occasionally light a candle when we feel desperate. Trust me – I know. I used to be like that when I first became a PaganContinue reading “Maintaining a Magical, Spiritual Life When Overwhelmed”
Mushrooms May 2011, a set on Flickr. While moving pots around and fixing up the soil, I discovered all these mushrooms in front of my art room! They are all over the place! I’m not sure what kind they are yet, but they are lovely. I always think mushrooms in a yard mean good luck.Continue reading “Look what I found in my garden!”
Today was full of feeling ill, wonderful thunder storms, documentaries, and more sewing. Meditation and ritual are still difficult due to coughing and throat congestion. Still, the fact that I’m trying feels good. It is so easy to fall out of a routine, thus even if it is difficult to experience a deep trance, continuingContinue reading “Second Moon – Last Quarter – Part 2”
