I relearn every year that I have to work with the rhythms of Mother Nature. After 75 degree weather here today, the weather folks are calling for possible snow showers on Saturday night. It’s enough to make any gardener crazy! My father told me there would always be a frost around the full moon near Easter, and once again, he’s right.
As I have raked and pulled plants I don’t want in certain places (I refuse to call them “weeds!”) and dreamed of new beds, peat moss and horse manure this week, I have been aware of the spirits of the plants around me. Every plant on Mother Earth has a Spirit, called a Deva, who nurtures the plant and helps it grow. Deva means “Shining One” in Sanskrit. My responsibility is to connect with the Spirit of each plant in my yard, and ask for guidance in doing the very best I can for each plant.
I leave a section of my yard in its natural state, which is where the fairies and elves are happiest. Sometimes, early in the morning or at twilight, I catch a movement, a glimmer, and know that the fey are watching over me!

Lovely Deb, thank you for sharing ♡
Thank you Joni! peace and blessings, Deb
Welcome to our world. I can’t even think about the garden yet. (well I do yearn for it) I might be able to plant some pansies in the flower box. They can handle a freeze. Weather man says we will struggle to hit 20 tomorrow and possible snow flurries. Hopefully we will warm up soon. We have some hearty fey up here but they are anxious to get out into some sunshine just as we are. Enjoy your garden.
Thanks for writing Melanie, and best of luck to you when you do start your garden! peace, Deb
Deb I love this reminder! I don’t live locally – could this work as one of your downloadable classes? Just a thought. Thanks Deb in all that you do!
Hi Kate, I’m planning on making it a downloadable course next week after I roll it out live. Watch for a notice about it! Thanks so much, Deb
