Every Wednesday evening just after dusk my family has a campfire on our property. Neighbors and friends sometimes stop by to share the light, warmth and friendship. We have decided to open our fire circles to others and would like to invite you.
We occasionally dine by the firelight so feel free to bring your own drink or food if you feel inclined… or not. The only thing we ask of those who attend is an open mind. Enjoy the warmth. The light. The peace. Turn off your phone. Conversation is optional but we do hope to share in some inspirational and thought provoking discussion.
Unplug from everything else and join our open fire circle us if you’re in the area. We’d love to meet you. Share in the warmth and the light. No words required.
The weather is turning cooler so dress appropriately. We do not have fire circles during inclement weather.
If you’re interested in joining us, send me a message via twitter.
This has been the busiest season… I step out my front door and every day there is something to do. Prune, plant, transplant, pick, harvest… dry, tincture, infuse… the list is never ending and it continues to bring me such a sense of joy, pleasure and peace. Mother Nature does most of the work, I just steward in conjunction with her. I wish everyone could experience the beauty, grace and magic of gardening. It’s so simple – every one should do it! Here are some latest images from the gardens…
blooming lavender, ducks enjoy their new pool, a gourd growing in with the tomatoes, growing tomatoes and basil together, happy green beans, sister sunflowers, huge banana peppers, our basil in the front garden are nearly the size of small trees! (shhh… soon to be pesto and canned in tomato sauce) … happy gardening!
Here’s a game– name the vegetable that matches the flower! Okay, the Rose of Sharon and Sunflower don’t count. There’s cantaloupe, potato, hot pepper, squash, tomato and mustard flowers. Did you get them? :)
The wheel turns and today we mark both the longest day (Northern Hemisphere) and the shortest day (Southern Hemisphere).
