My cloth stones for the magic feather project are ready to roll so I'm saying good-bye. I'll have something to remember them with though.
The annual plant sale for a group I belong to, The Herb Society of America-Rocky Mountain Unit, is tomorrow. Set-up is today so I have to let go and say good-bye to these many green spirits in a little while -- over 100 plants with whom I've shared time and space and life over the last few months -- my donations are Genovese basil, Mrs. Burns lemon basil, red amaranth, nettles, and horseradish. The tenders got hauled into the house on cold days and nights but for the most part, all the plants were outside in the cold frame. It's remarkable really, and sort of sad. I hope they all have joyful lives in their new garden homes.
Big events with the earth, sun and moon occur this weekend -- 1) an annular eclipse, meaning we'll see a just a ring of the sun's edge around the moon as it passes by; 2) the sun moves into the sign of Gemini so happy birthday to all you Geminis; and 3) a new moon in the sign of Gemini! Eye protection is needed to watch the eclipse -- I'm hoping we have some welder's glasses around here somewhere.
Thanks for visiting here and happy weekending. xo
