Goddess Permaculture 39…Exposed!


Thirty nine photographs of the Goddess at her best, as we rise towards Midsummer…a mere twenty four days away!IMG_1558

An abundance of fruit, flowers and vegetables, captured this morning on film, images from a small part of the three acres of Bealtaine Cottage, in the west of Ireland…all growing on this “poor” agricultural land.IMG_1559

I won’t take up too much of your time with words, for I would rather you simply enjoy the images, as I have done whilst drinking my morning coffee and walking the land.IMG_1560

Many thanks to Majella and Derek who brought me the beautiful little Oak saplings yesterday…that’s the pic at the top of this post!IMG_1561

I wish you all a Happy Sunday with blessings for the week ahead, from all here at Bealtaine Cottage…May you embrace the joy from Mother Earth XXX Colette XXXIMG_1562IMG_1563IMG_1564IMG_1565IMG_1566IMG_1567IMG_1568IMG_1569IMG_1570IMG_1571IMG_1574IMG_1575IMG_1577IMG_1578IMG_1579IMG_1580IMG_1581IMG_1582IMG_1583IMG_1584IMG_1589IMG_1590IMG_1591IMG_1593IMG_1594IMG_1596IMG_1597IMG_1598IMG_1599IMG_1599IMG_1572IMG_1573IMG_1588IMG_1585IMG_1595IMG_1600

  1. Dear Colette, I recently stumbled upon your videos on Youtube and I’m astounded and inspired by what you have achieved. I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to you for this amazing project you have embarked upon with Mother nature and for sharing it with the world. God willing, I hope to achieve something similar and intend to use your fantastic achievements as a continuing source of inspiration and motivation. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that have done and continue to do, you have lit a fire in my soul. Blessings to you 🙂

  2. You inspired me to do a bit of guerilla-gardening myself today. I dumped a sack of soil on a closed-down industrial lot across the road, on a little hill and strew a lot of different seeds over it. And now I just let nature take its course.

  3. I absolutely love your garden and being taken for a walk through it ! You must be in a micro climate as your garden is way ahead of mine (Pinner Middx) ! Truly beautiful and I can feel the peace from here ! Thank you for sharing your garden and home.


  4. Yes gorgeous, and wonderful! So many things blooming right now. May you continue to have a happy life and adequate rain, Colette! I did receive your autographed book and thoroughly enjoyed it!

  5. I love what I can see so far of your photos. I’m sorry to say it may take a while. Loading numerous photos on dial up can take forever, here, in the US.

  6. Stunning photos as usual Colette. The sheer abundance at this time of year is breathtaking . I am so pleased the beautiful little bat survived bless him . Your garden gives me so much inspiration and makes me very happy just looking at it. Enjoy your Sunday too . Blessings to you xxxx

  7. I love how it looks there and the things that you do. A friend “introduced” you to me and now I want to learn more about the things that you do. It’s so beautiful!

  8. Thank you so much for the lovely visions of Midsummer approaching. The beauty of Nature knows no bounds but continues to unfold in ever more amazing ways each season.

  9. As always, the photos are lovely. There is a depth and richness at Bealtaine Cottage that is staggering. Thank you for sharing so generously! Xx
    P.S. Is there an update on the little bat you rescued?
