Growing Season Within & Without

Hello to my gardening friends… I have been absent for a while… But I have not been idle… I thought to share some philosophy here combining both blogs today with my gardening world one… Love and well wishes in your growing season.. Sue

Dreamwalker's Sanctuary

Hello again to those of you who bare with me through these times of shifts and changes. So much is happening within our world, both within a consciousness level, and within our own personal lives. In which so many lives have been tipped upside down within this Upside Down World.

We each have had to learn to navigate through these changes and shifting energies as best we can. And while the outer world is plunged within the fear, I have for the most part been able to ground myself within the growing season of planting and tending our large allotment plot. As well as connecting back within, to the things my heart is guiding me to, such as my painting and crafts.

Golden Paths~ Taking Time To BE…

This may go some way in explaining how I have been feeling since I wrote this post on my other blog back in 2019. And the longer gaps here on my gardening blog. I have felt the urge to go within and in many ways disconnect, while reconnecting back to nature, and my authentic self… My inner guide which has taken me back within my arts and crafts..

My next post here I hope that I can show you more, of those painting and crafts. But I am taking the internet in bitesize chunks these days… So for those of you still with me here within my garden blog.. I thank you …. Its now time I feel all of us got reacquainted with our Inner Selves and those skills and dreams we put to one side…
Much love … Sue ❤

Golden Paths

Hello my friends, So what has been happening in Dreamwalker’s World..   Well I have been surrendering to the higher power and those intuitive feelings we are all a part of..

I am seeing many of my WP friends who are also embracing their intuitive feelings as they too step back to go within their own space to BE.. 

For me I am no longer feeling the urge to be communicating here as often..  Why is that?… I am uncertain.. Whether it’s the changes within me, or the collective needs to regain its balance..I am not questioning it… I am just following the flow of my own compass, concentrating upon my Inner Being… I am playing my part in finding my own inner balance.. After all, the only thing is this world I can change is ME. 

Maybe if we all of us took responsibility and went within…

A Post In Pictures

As many of you may have noticed I have not been in WordPress much lately…. That isn’t to say you are not all held within my heart… As I cannot concentrate for long periods right now due to having bouts of Vertigo which have my head spinning more some days than others..

This update is in picture format only.. Showing the allotment and home garden a few weeks ago… First the Flowers and then the Veggies..

Sending you all much love… I appreciate you all, and wish each and everyone of you especially those who live across the Pond in the USA a Happy Thanksgiving… Stay Blessed

What a difference Eight Weeks Makes!

Its been a while I know since I posted an update. And what you see here is all to the hard work of my hubby.  After I set too in Spring and over did things. So I have kept to lighter duties on the gardening front. If you hover your mouse pointer over each image it will tell you what is planted. 

So while  Hubby has been busy planting and keeping the weeds down, I completed my knitting projects and also finished a painting which seems ages ago now that now hangs on our granddaughters bedroom wall when she comes to stay.

Eagle and chicks

Short sleeve top

This Short-sleeve top on the right  was completed, and no sooner was it finished than I was itching to start another as I came across some more bargain wool

This short sleeve top I did to add as a short top to the cardigan I knitted.

The colours are the same, its just my camera and the lighting that makes them look different.

I then set about wanting to knit a summer light jumper which I was hoping to take on holiday, but I didn’t finish that in time, I completed it when we came back  home

Summer Jumper,

The colour of this is a turquoise but again the light and my camera do not do it justice.

The back of the jumper pattern in close up here

Now I am working upon a thicker Aran Wool Sweater. I have already done the back and working on the front 

Aran Sweater

The Home garden has been where I have been working, and getting my Begonias which have been stored over winter into pots. Lifting tulips out of the tubs and daffodils. While filling the hanging baskets and wall hangers with flowers for Summer..

Here is what the tubs of Tulips looked like back in April

Happy Gardening and Creating!

Until Next Time.

I thought I had better break my internet silence to let all you wonderful people know I am still in the land of the living.  I think this is my longest absence from WP since I started blogging in 2007.

 I have missed not visiting you all..

THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCHfor your beautiful responses to my last post, and for showing patience. I did warn you all it may take a while to respond to your wonderful comments, I hope next week to work my way back down the list of comments to reply to you all and visit your own wonderful sites will take priority.

But I do recommend turning the modem off, for long periods, and I have not felt guilty one bit.. (A first for me…) And as a result, I have got lots done. And more soon on my feelings as…

Arriving back from my vacation can often feel like a shock to the system, as we adjust back into the realm of being busy, as our days of relaxation are soon over.

Having had time away in beautiful Scotland, when I arrived home, the weather in England had been exceptionally warm, and therefore everything in the garden had bloomed, including the weeds.  So, among our first tasks was to set too and water and weed and sow seeds that still needed to be sown and plant out things which had been in the cold-frame which were ready for the allotment.

This was what it was like when we left this piece at the end of April before my holiday.

Sometimes things have to take a backseat and it happened to be my blogs this time that were pending.  So, apologies for those of you who still await my replies to…

Oban~ Scotland.

This is why I have not been around my gardening blog lately.. On Holiday and Preparing for Christmas. Thank you for your patience.. and look forward to catching up with you soon.. Hugs Sue

The above view  is taken of Oban Town, from the  The Colosseum-like structure of  McCaig’s Tower.  The view looks out onto the various Isles in the distance. Below is a plaque which shows you the Isles,to which the ferries travel back and forth, to Mull, and other islands, sorry the focus is out on the one below. 

 

Oban means ‘The Little Bay’ It is from here you take the ferries to Mull, and other islands.  I took these photos from this advantage point. The McCaig’s Tower. Which stands high above the town 

John Stuart McCaig (1824 – 1902) commissioned the build  over a five year period from 1895 until his death in 1902. You can find out why it was built by opening the link.   

Inside there is a garden and it looks like this

To get to the tower you walk the steep climb.. We took the steps…

A Time of Gathering.

I took a walk Yesterday, and added some thoughts.. I posted this on my other blog.. Enjoy and Enjoy your harvests..

Autumn colours as I walked yesterday

Walking out in Mother Nature is a gift I treasure, watching the changing seasons, absorbing each one with all her different merits, from Spring, through to Summer. Now Autumn is truly here, and its that time of harvest, of ‘gathering in.’

The heather shows us her colours~ What colours do we show the world I wonder.

  As I walked, I thought about how I love harvest time.. I love reaping in our harvest. And we all reap that which we have sown. 

Yesterday we harvested some of our first carrots.. A success story, as we often do battle with the  carrot fly, and pests, as we do not use any kind of chemical pesticides, So the carrot fly  has in the past rendered our carrots inedible.  This year with forethought and planing, we set them late, in a separate bed, covered them with a…

Wouldn’t you know it when I got shaky with the “process” upon which posts of mine are made, a new method I attempted failed.  Sure did.  I thought (for a change) I would take the words that had come earlier (written down on my yellow pad), outside with me to peruse my garden to see if I could construe what shots to take for those words.  All I obtained was zilch, natta, no genius of a Muse felt anywhere.

Huh.  How do ya like that?  Teach me, didn’t She, not to change anything!

OK!! I stopped…
