The farm became her life and she slept for the next twenty years in a big brass bed in the barn…

  1. I remember this blog 🙂 ahh these comments even make me smile massively. I love the connection between all things living and sometimes passed as those live on in us and around us. 😀 thankyou for your inspiration and sharing your creativity 🙂

  2. Colette – I am, even if I don’t say it, very very grateful to you for the work you have been doing, and are doing. It goes beyond the artistry of your blog. It even, for me, goes beyond Permaculture Gardening/Planting itself. You take me to a place I know exists – and I have been dreaming of creating, most of my life. In short – You Give Me Hope. I may neglect saying thankyou – but please do know that you and your blog bring great light and hope into my heart and life. What you have created/create is a living, breathing Being – and it touches the lives of many, I know. I live in Athens, GA, USA, in an apartment, and am saving my money to buy a very small place in the country. Perhaps I shall take the example of your grandmother and purchase her “on the courthouse steps,” at auction! Bless you – Peace and Love, Mari Braveheart-Dances

      1. WordPress is a nightmare Colette. Loads of times I type in a comment and it tells me to log in. I try to do that and then it tells me I canny because I’m already logged in. I end up chewing cushions.

Your comments are welcome! I reply to every one!
