Breath


Beneath the intricate network of noise
there's a still more persistent tapestry
woven of whispers, murmurs and chants

It's the heaving breath of the very earth
carrying along the prayer of all things:
trees, ants, stones, creeks and mountains alike

All giving silent thanks and remembrance
each moment, as a tug on a rosary bead
while we harry past, heedless of the mysteries

And, yet, every secret wants to be told
every shy creature to approach and trust us
if  only we patiently listen, with all our senses.

Magic surrounds the world

Magic makes the miracles,
magic finds those who need it,
looking around,
moving around the world,
creating peace and battle,
we search for a great peace,
the nature around us,
full of magic,
the love and harmony cross,
loving those that love it,
searching for friends and allies,
love of magic is truthful,
and magic shall love you always.
-Nicholas Spandrel-


Hyvää juhannusta!
Have a nice midsummer weekend!

Iris


"The species that has appeared most often in art since the fifteenth century is the German flag (Iris germanica), although many other species and hybrids appear, especially in seventeenth-century paintings. In general, the iris symbolizes kingship and majesty, both worldly and celestial. In heraldry, the lily appears as a fleur-delish in the arms of the rulers of Florence and France and their families, as well as the arms of various cities in France and Germany. Many medieval sources cite the iris as a symbol of Christ or divine rule, and a symbol of the Virgin as Heavenly queen."
from the book:
Belief in Nature (flowers with a message) by Sam Segal.

With these Irises from my garden I wish you a nice weekend my friends!

Paulan puutarhassa



Puutarhavierailulta Paula Ritanen-Närhin puutarhasta 24.5. Puutarha on kyllä niin ihana seikkailu, yksityiskohtia yksityiskohtien perään. Paritalo, tontti ei ole suuren suuri mutta se tuntuu juuri sopivan kokoiselta ja sinne on saatu mahtumaan minun mielestäni kaikki mahdollinen ja luotu jumalainen salainen puutarha jossa ei tylsää hetkeä tule. Osaan kuvitella kuinka aamulla kiertelisin aamukasteen aikaan kiertelemässä kahvikuppi kädessä katsellen valon leikkiä. 
Kiitos Paula tuhannesti!

Details from Paula Ritanen-Närhi's garden where we visited 24th of May. It was so gorgeous, full of details in every corner, I really loved it.

Omilla nurkilla




Sunnuntaita kaikille! Hieman oman nurkkien kukintaa, osa kuihtunut jo ja osa alkamassa kukkimaan. Unikot olen siirtänyt ex-anopin pihasta luoja ties kuinka monta vuotta sitten mutta nyt vasta ovat alkamassa leviään. Tähän mennessä tullut vain 2 kukkaan mutta nyt niitä on kymmenkunta kahdessa eri penkissä, mahtavaa. Toivottavasti sateet lakkaavat nyt jottei unikon silkkinen pinta ruhjoonnu ihan kokonaan. Etupihan kivetys on niin kaunis kun koristeomenapuu pudotellut vaaleanpunaiset kukintonsa ympäriinsä, jotenkin niin romanttisen pinkkiä ja sireenien ihana tuoksu siihen päälle, täydellistä.
Aurinko pilkistelee lupaavasti ainakin täällä ja hieman harmittaa lähteä töihin mutta ajatellaan näin että siitä saa nappulaa kukkien ostoon:)

Few pictures from my own yard. Some of the flowers are already gone and some are just starting, like poppies. I so love poppies and those I have moved from ex mother-in-laws yard many years ago. Until this year I have got only two poppies but now there are almost ten buds, yeee I'm so happy they are finally spreading.
Sun is trying to shine and I hope it's not going to rain anymore ( I had enough of that for one week).
Have great Sunday, hoping sun shine for your lives!
