Ostara falls on march 21st during the vernal equinox where by both day and night are equal. It is a pivotal point in balance where forces of light gain power and emerge over darkness until midsummer. The equinox happens when the sun aligns with the earths equator and begins to cross the northern hemisphere beginning the warmer season and emerging in to spring. This season we follow is the celebration of the returning strength and warmth of the sun, a celebration we call Ostera. Because of its astrological timing and events, this celebration is a good time to gain your focus and balance.
Remember those old lady knickknacks of the late 70s of a flower completely frozen in a globe of lucite? There were a few geriatric abodes I visited during that era, and those stopped-in-their-tracks flowers were always a fascination. So perfect and yet so bizarrely frozen.
You can make your own, a bit more ephemeral, version as another gorgeous use for edible flowers. Encase your posies in ice cubes to chic up late summer cocktails or mocktails. You can use any edible flowers for this project. Read More
Each seed you plant contains a huge amount of universal information.
Nothing man made can compare to it for size and accuracy. This information allows the seeds to know precisely, down to the millisecond, when it needs to come to life and grow, what juices to take from the earth and how to use the emanation from the sun, the moon and the starts. It knows what to grow into and what fruits to bear.
Fruits are intended to give man sustenance. These fruits can effectively fight and resist any illness of the human organism more powerfully than any man made medicines that exist today or will in the future. But to do this, the seed has to know about the persons condition. In order for it to be saturated during the ripening process, the fruit needs the correlation of substances for healing a specific person and his illness, if he has one or a predisposition toward one.
In order for the seed of a cucumber , tomato or any other plant grown in a garden to have information about a persons health, the following is essential.
For those of you who never had a chance to visit the beautiful Mosaic International Cultures Exhibit at the Botanical Gardenâ€™s, I wished to share with you some of my favourites from the show. I almost missed it myself, however luckily the Botanical Gardens had extended the exhibit for an extra week because of the nice weather in Montreal, and so very glad they did! Although it was raining the day I visited (hence the slightly dark imagery with some raindrops) it was that much more romantic being out in the nature, unsheltered by the rain. The pictures don’t do justice to the magnificence of these living works of art, they were every bit worth being caught in the rainfall.Read More
In memory of his wife, Winston Howes planted 6.000 oak trees to create this giant heart in South Gloucestershire.
He laid out the trees in a six-acre field but left a perfect heart shape in the middle – with the point facing in the direction of her childhood home. The labour of love has now blossomed into a peaceful oasis where Winston can sit and remember his wife of 33 years.Â Read More
