moon-day-light

 

Today is a full moonday in Pisces. In that way that regular life often seems to emulate moon life if one notices -- we too are at a pinnacle of fullness and ripeness and beauty. Elder branches are laden with hundreds of tiny black berries and raspberries bow deep, so heavy their load -- they remind me of my own visions coming to fruition.

Like candlelight and moonlight, September daylight makes everyone and everything look more beautiful. The buddha garden and the goddess garden draw me in -- and remind me to see, really see, to create a sweet memory for later. The colors of flowers and chairs and cloth are more brilliant than ever. From the indigo vat, a white blouse has emerged the finest blue I can imagine. And a September moondala ritual begins with imprinted dyers coreopsis wool and a little onion skin moon.

Circling 'round, I'm taking it all in, as much as I can. I wish you the same with your season.

Hi Deanna, yes, it went into the vat twice. It had also been dyed, unsuccessfully, a few times prior, once with eucalyptus and once in oak leaves. Finally!

Peggy have you taken part in the World Blog Hop train by any chance?
If not would you like to? : )

Thanks, Dee, it was a long time coming for that one. :)

Peggy said...

Lyn, yes, it certainly does pay off!

I never have taken part in the World Blog Hop but would love to know more about it. Will hop over to your blog to see if you've mentioned it. I think I remember when you did it last year.

What a lovely garden! And I envy you a little for all those fruit, I have to content with a balcony and foraging - that of course is a pleasure in itself. I find it difficult to walk past an elder or rowan tree with all those tasty berries enticing me.

Your blue blouse is wonderful, I wonder if first dyeing it with oak leaves helped.
Looks like another beautiful moondala on it's way.

Somehow I missed this post!
How much land do you have? The garden looks so big in this pic today. Love the blue blouse. And I agree the colors do look so rich.
I completely love those little people candle holders.
