A Meet Cute

How do new Flower Essences come to be made here?

Often it is a bit of a “Meet Cute.”

This is phrase I learned in the wonderful Holiday movie called, The Holiday with Kate Winslet.  At one point, a dear elderly Hollywood producer is telling Kate’s character that in a story or a film there always has to be a funny and charming way that the love interests meet.  I feel that way about Flowers.  I always feel meeting a Flower is a big deal and seeing an old Flower friend after a long winter a very special reunion.  This makes every day in the garden such a gift to me as you can imagine how many reunions I have!

So anyways, for me the “Meet Cute” is when I bump into the Flower- maybe one I have known, maybe one I have been looking for or maybe one that is new to me.  And the Flower calls out to me in some way or another. Usually in a way that makes it hard for me to miss!  Thank you Flowers.

It helps with the Meet Cute when some of you have been asking for this Flower to be made into a Flower Essence.  Its like I have gotten a bit of an introduction before we actually meet and I am looking for the moment we meet- So Thank YOU for all your suggestions!

This weekend’s “Meet Cute” was with Nettles.  Our old friend Nettles which I have long drunk in tea in spring as a spring tonic, but which I have never found in bloom until yesterday.

During a sparkly clear dawn, I was standing in a field down the road from here watching another activity when I glanced down and saw a patch of Nettles right in front of me with the Flowers all lit up and glowing.  Within moments, a Flower Essence was underway.

And here she is, Nettles with the Flower Essence joining the ranks this morning.

After the Fourth

One thing which keeps me busy in the days surrounding the Fourth of July is working with the air Elementals, aka the Sylphs, to repair the damage done to the air element by fireworks.

Yes, its not just your dogs that don’t like fireworks- The Elementals loathe them!

New Hampshire has the most complicated regulations for say getting septic tank approval to build a new home but pretty much a five year old can walk into a store and pick up a truck load of fireworks.  This means that on the days before the Fourth and even after, there are fireworks everywhere. Firework season has become Memorial Day to Labor Day! And this has been very hard on the Air Element and the hear working Air Elementals who are already swamped dealing with our pollution.

If you would like to work with the Sylphs to repair the damage done on land near you, ask the Sylphs over the property where the fireworks took place to cleanse, clear illuminate and rebalance the air of this place.  Our request is necessary due to humanity’s free will. The Elementals will assume we want the air Element looking like swiss cheese if we don’t ask for this repair.

If you would like to work the whole piece of land, call in Pan (head of all Elementals), and all the Elementals (which includes Sylphs for the air element, Undines for the water element, Salamanders for the fire element, Gnomes for the earth Elemental and Ether Elementals for the Ether element. and ask that all the Elements of the property be cleansed, cleared, illuminated and rebalanced.  There is a much longer description of land clearing on our website’s resources page in the section under Angels & Elementals.

ANY land clearing work you do right now matters so much to Earth!  Consider making this a part of your daily routine! BLESS YOU!

Now I am off to the potato patch to check in on a Potato Flower Essence I am making with the dozen gorgeous potato varieties we are growing right now- I have never had such a radiant group of potato plants here, much as we grow them every year- I credit my son in law, Charlie who is in charge of the potatoes this year.  He has a real touch with potatoes!
