Flo, the littlest hobo, follows me around today as I work in the gardens.
Another waif and stray who has found a home at Bealtaine Cottage.
She is a character for sure!
Today has been busy…baking, weeding and topping up the potatoes, as well as cutting down the comfrey and topping up the compost…yes indeed, I swing from one task to another with nothing between each except the soap and sink where I wash my hands!
This used to be a pathway, one of many that needs a good trimming.
No wonder that the compost heaps are brimming and the soil is so healthy…there is so much to feed the soil with, it’s almost impossible to keep up!
Healthy abundance, the true gift of permaculture!
Monetary systems produce scarcity, Permaculture produces abundance, freely!
As I trim archways like this willow one, I throw the cuttings around a plant or tree, as a food and mulch.
In this way, the soil is built up and good bacteria is introduced into it as the cuttings decompose.
Permaculture…it is time…instead of weapons of destruction, we need to unleash weapons of creation and abundance.
Willow archways and the beautiful Purple Beech, a stunning and simple combination!
Here are the simple white-washed stones I wrote about a few weeks ago in this blog, down by the entrance gate near the road.
This little garden was put along by the fence and has settled in really well. All the plants are home-grown from either cuttings or seed.
The stones were collected up from the land, so the cost of this was zero!
Our true divinity is in our ability to create.
