flowerings

Monday, May 30th, 2011

Spring flowers are everywhere!! I was surprised pleasantly to discover these beauties on the beach the other day.

Ponderosa pines i do believe, 2 of them side by side. One had flowers in a deep purple, the other a rich red. WOW!

Not a usual flower with petals and stem etc., but definitely radiating like one! And the source of the young seeds….

Amazing!

 

I hope you are enjoying the bliss of spring flowers too!

Love Life and Be Well!!

Love, love, love! this springtime air. A lot of the time all i want to do is sit, and breathe. Each breath is like a gulp of fresh springwater, and nourishing as any food. So rain and shine i have been able to enjoy this….

It feels like everything i make is inspired by these natural experiences.

Once again i am spinning away (yay!). When i look down at my beautiful wheel i just feel like i am time traveling. Any type of meditation is crucial these days, and the repetitive whir of the wheel and my foot on the treadle, the fibers slipping through my fingers, well it suits me just fine.

I even learned a new technique, Navaho 3 ply! Which is an amazing way to turn a single ply thread into a 3-ply yarn! ingenius!! (thanks christa)

and some results…

Looks like candy to me….YUM. Soon to be found on the shelves at Maplerose:)

 

Love Life!! Be Well!!

 

 

 

 

ode to tree

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

 

Another wander in la forêt, has once again filled me to the brim with love and gratitude for the trees. The trees that ground our consciousness and continually, peacefully, and patiently hold it down for the entire planet. Thankyou, dear trees, for providing medicine, and shade. Thankyou for your strong presence. Thankyou for letting go always at the right time. Thankyou for feeding and sheltering mosses, lichen, polypores and fungi. Thankyou for your ever-beauty.

 

Just a note to let y’all know that all the pictures on all my blog entries are my own:)

enjoy life today!

Giving thanks for sky, air, water, earth

 

Ahhhh… the beach.  Spent a luxurious night, warm in a tent, fresh air reprieve, first camp of the year, yes!!!

 

Beautiful, alive, generous, reflective.

Nothing like it… glacier lily in the sun

Look closely at this next picture, that is not the sky above the trees, but the lake! This is taken from a very high vantage point over slocan lake, off a very steep cliff!! Though the sky is perfectly reflected….

beauteous kootenays!

Love Life and Be Well!
