In the interest of attracting good energy, I decided to decorate my front porch door.
Not much blooming right now in my gardens, but the leaves and the pinks look good, and they make me smile.
There are hosta leaves, astilbe, beach roses and lavender.
My lavender is just starting to bloom perfect time for some Lavender wands. I make them every year. They smell so wonderful.
This is from the Heirloom Gardener -John Forti
Lavender wands ~ History brings us artfully layered garden crafts like weaving lavender wands. They encase the fragrant flowers in a green woven basket of their own stems, and create artful wands that could ornament closets and drawers to perfume clothes, lingerie and bedding. Science reinforces what our ancestors already understood; that lavender infused a calming perfume that also kept moths and bedbugs at bay.
To make your own lavender wand, gather the longest stems of fresh lavender. Secure them tightly just below the flower heads with fine ribbon and bend the stems back over the flowers like a cage. Use the same ribbon ends to weave back through in opposite directions (in order to leave flowers exposed in a checkerboard pattern): over and under, over and under, until the flowers are encased and you can use the remainder of the ribbon to fashion the handle of the wand.
It's a great craft to share with kids...and of course there is a little magic in every wand
This is so tiny and such wonderful color.
Roses we dug up in Maine at my mother's house not far from the ocean. They are everywhere near the ocean in Maine. They do well here and form a hedge for us.
My favorite place in the summer and sadly the last of my roses. The pounding rain this morning took out the last of them.
My hens and chicks in my rock gardens are happy.
Today I saged the house. It is supposed to drive any bad energy out of the house and leave room for the good energy.
Husband has been getting better every day. But we are still being very careful today is day 8. I have used more bleach, disinfect spray, soap, paper towels and hand sanitizer than I ever thought possible.
The worst part is the isolation, anxiety of waiting for the other shoe to drop. Again, tense energy... I am hoping the sage helps Let's put it this way it can't hurt.
I have had a lot of time on my hands but for some reason no creative energy. I have hooked a little but really, I have wasted so much time on pintrest. Makes me mad just thinking about the lost time.
I enjoyed the last book I read by this author, and I treated myself to a new book something I rarely do but my library didn't have it.
Sadly, it is nowhere near as good as the first book I read. But I will finish it.
I am closing with a smile
Have a wonderful week!!!
