The First Time We Saw the Land in Four Months






There had been so much rain for...months.  The road was not passable.  We kept checking back.  And then, last week, unexpectedly we were able to get down the road again!  The last time we saw it, the whole shoulder of the road all the way to the ditch had been scraped clean down to sand.  We had sown a couple of POUNDS of various seeds I'd kept over the years.  We had no idea what we'd find because the floodwaters washed a lot of them away.  But as we neared the property...I became like a little girl again.  The pics can't pick up these without "orton-ing" them color-wise, but it was the only way to somewhat capture it on camera...

JOY!!!!  Flowers waiting like a celebration as we lay eyes on the farm for the first time in soooooooo long!!!

Thanking Jehovah!!!

How gorgeous! I love all these flowers.

Thanks, Sandy! Apparently of all the different kinds of seeds we had thrown down, the ones that survived were nearly all zinnias!

Hi, I found your post looking for reviews of the East West school.. I looked through your other blog, but it stopped after a few months. How did it go? Would you recommend the course??
Thanks!

Melisazia, yes I would heartily recommend the East West herb school as well as mentoring or any lessons by Rosalee de la Foret! I put my studies on hold for longer than I wanted due to a job working 12 hour shifts most of the week, and then a leg injury that slowed everything way down. I'm picking it back up, but that's part of the beauty of it...it's designed to flex with life itself. The love of herbs never flags, and the information is there for study as well as a lifetime reference after its completion :)
