Nature’s Early Spring Perfume

I have a witch hazel bush that is just perfuming the air with fragrance for over a week.

It’s so strong that I am walking around the yard trying to find things to do so I can keep smelling it.

If you are in the northeast, I highly recommend this native plant. The scent will fill the yard.

It’s the first thing to bloom too.

My Brother Mark, A Son of Eire

My big brother Mark comes to me in songs.

Clannad’s “Harry’s Theme” will spontaneously come on when I think of him, if I have satellite radio on. He was brilliant and beautiful. So this St Patrick’s Day, I think of my brother, Mark. We Irish can be brilliant lights, but tend to find a beauty in sadness, methinks.

I will go east and go west
From whence came
The moon and the sun

The moon and the sun will go
And the young man

With his reputation behind him
I will go wherever he came from –
The young man with his reputation behind him

His birthday was on March 1st. If it wasn’t for my brother Mark, I would not be who I am today. He turned me on to music, to the arts, to science, to science fiction and Star Trek. To exploring the unseen worlds within our Universe. To spirituality and not religion.  

He was a huge influence on turning my natural inclination to the exploration of the higher realms of thought into something tangible I could bring into my life. I would explore his room as a child and find the books that lead me on paths that made me who I am today.

I owe a lot to him.

Smart, funny, extremely talented. In his younger years, he was the prettiest of us all. All that I can do well, he could do better. Guitarist, musician, artist, gardener, chef, actor, dancer. He wrote songs and sang them. He wanted to boldly go where no man had gone before.  He was willing and able to see in our world and those worlds beyond us what others could not.

He was a true son of Eire.

Extreme Gnome Makeover Part II

…..A Tale of Two Brothers.

Part Deux

The Gnomes meet the true boss at our cottage, A.O Extreme Gnome Makeover Eileen Anglin www.whiterosepath.com

The Gnomes meet the true boss at our cottage, A.O

I apologize for the long stretch of time between the tale of Two Gnomes. If you are just joining us, you can read Part I here. The truth of it is, I have a Gemini moon so my mind and my energies travel where the winds flow. And they flowed in many directions this past month, my friends.

A.O our resident overlord and Master of the Golden Light Ray helped me paint these two. He was sincerely interested in all stages of their transformation.

A.O. Making sure his directions are carried out..as per usual.

I know these are statuary. But regardless if people think I’m Nutsy Fagan, I’m going to tell you that there were some mystical moments with these two. From the moment they sat outside in my garden, which has very active Devic energy, there was a lot of  Nature Alchemy and spiritual synchronicity at play.

What was interesting is when these two first arrived, I put them out in the herb garden, flanking a young crab apple tree. Within days, I began to get complete images of what they wanted to look like at the end of this make-over.  If and when I veered away from that during painting, I had to correct it or could not move on with my day. It would be a little nagging thought at the back of my head all day and night.

Crystals at the base of Brother Gnome

For example, I did paint this one’s beard and hair grey, as my first vision had shown me. But then I changed it to blonde because I thought it would be more cohesive. After I did so, I had this little nagging voice inside my head saying; “No..no no! Change it back to grey!” When I did change it back the following day, it just felt right. All was right in my Brother’s Gnome world once again.

This sort of thing happened throughout the process. If I painted outside the vision I had received from their arrival in the garden, a nagging went on day and night until I stuck with the plan.

Stay tuned for the final installment of Extreme Gnome Makeover to see how important those details were and how that tied into some interesting revelations when they arrived back in their Oregon home.

How the Gnome Brothers looked when they arrived

Meet the Brothers Gnome.

I know someone who really loves her gnomes. In fact, we call her yard “Gnomehorn” after the famous garden of Findhorn that has a lot of spiritual energy.

But her gnomes were bleached white by the sun and it’s elements. Especially two of them that meant a lot to her.

They came to me for some TLC and to soak up the very active energy in my own gardens, what we named The Gardens of 333. I had a vision of how they should look at the end of the makeover. Was the creative vision created in my minds eye  or did it come from the magical gnome brothers? 😉

They spent the summer next to a baby crabapple tree in my herb garden and in the fall, the makeover started.

I start with one that I’ve already envisioned as “the starry-eyed wizard.”

Finally..my hat has color again!

Out of the two, he definitely colors outside the lines, so to speak.

Migrating Monarchs Stop By The Gardens of 333

I took these photos of Monarchs on their way south towards a major migration route in Cape May, New Jersey. They took a break in my yard and the gardens I created to help them survive. (See previous posts on my Save the Monarch Project.)

This happened 2 weeks ago, but just now getting a chance to post about it. I can’t tell you how thrilling it was to have them come into the sanctuary I created as they make their long trek south.

If you have been following my blog and my little backyard project,  you know the Monarchs are in serious decline. The photos I took were of four individuals that I saw that day. I don’t know if four is an encouraging number or not, as I am pretty new to all of this.

What I do know is that the monarch larvae that were in my garden this year ( if they survived the many preying mantis I have around here) will come back to me in the spring, like kids coming home to where they were born and raised.

Birthday Rocket

English: LADEE lunar orbiter Deutsch: LADEE Mondorbiter (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Last night I saw something that ranks as one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. A rocket, launched by NASA came over our house and went to the moon. I mean, we literally saw the engines glow, a trail of orange behind it and then the separation of the rocket in front of us. It looked like it was right in front of our house. Then it went out to the sea.

Those who know me well know I am passionate about space travel, and if I had a mind for math and humans lived longer lives, I would have loved to have been an astronaut. My birthday is in a few days, and it’s a milestone birthday.  I joke with my husband that the angels gave me a rocket launch for my birthday.  It was absolutely amazing. Breathtaking.

Can you imagine if the countries of the world spent money on resources and services for people and our environment, space exploration instead of war, what we could accomplish?

I know I’m a space geek, but this really was spectacular. NASA calls the rocket mission “Ladee,” but I call it “Birthday Rocket!”
