My Connemara visitors have left…sad to wave off such great folks!
Missy and Che are both fed and pampered.
The Tea cups are washed and stacked on the draining board and the last of the muffins packed away into the freezer…for if not I would surely eat them…well, I may share them with Jack and Flo!
Missy appears to be more tolerant of Che, for today at least…he may be taking his life in his hands by getting this close tomorrow!
We talked and talked about such interesting things…it’s a pleasure to share time with like-minded folk!
By understanding the Universe as a vast, holistic system and our Earth as a part of that complex and unified system, we can start to bring about the restoration of the natural ecosystems that hold it all in place.
This is why so many visitors are drawn to what is happening here at Bealtaine…the restoring of the ecosystem on three acres can be mirrored anywhere.
To begin, it is essential to honour and trust Nature…that is what I have learned at Bealtaine Cottage.
For once we let go of the urge to control and dominate Nature, we become open to understanding creation itself.
We simply do not yet have the words to articulate this wonder.
We have been constrained in all aspects of our living for so very long…
Terri brought me big generous bags of wholefoods from her shop in Connemara…I feel utterly spoilt!
I may visit Connemara to give a talk on Permaculture…thank you both for the invitation!
As we stood together in the garden nearest the cottage, we spotted a Butterfly…I hope this is a good omen of lots more to come!
We live in such strange times.
I feel blessed to be here, at this time, for so much has been revealed.
More and more people are becoming conscious, as though they have awoken from a very deep slumber.
We live in interesting times, we live in dangerous times, but most of all, we live.
The same thing has happened this year as did last…
I am struggling with the fruit produced last summer and am desperately using it for wine-making!
Oh well, I hear you say, that’s alright then…
However, there is a real panic setting in as the blackcurrants are fast maturing and every time that I open the freezer, a realization of the immensity of what’s to come, stares back at me in the form of bags upon bags of frozen Blackcurrants!
A goblet of the red stuff from last year…a fine vintage!
Blackcurrants do make superb wine, a real taste of summer to open in midwinter!
The only real rule to follow is that everything is kept scrupulously clean…that’s all!
So, to today and the video I have uploaded from Bealtaine Cottage…
It’s all about how the plants are progressing…and they are doing very well indeed…
