February in the UK has experienced unusually warm days, with 20C towards the end of the month. This time last year we were wrapping up our seedlings and some of our perennials in readiness for the ‘Beast from the East’ which delivered 30cm of snow overnight and left us with temperatures of -

Is it really unseasonal? Or are we missing the point? Nature in our garden and around the UK is connected with all of nature on our glorious planet. What happens in one part of the world will influence another. Australia has experienced unprecedented rainfall this month with floods in Northern Queensland the likes of which have never been seen before. While in other parts of Australia, years of drought have resulted in millions of cattle dying in the extreme heat.
We are messing with nature all over the planet. Natural habitats are being encroached upon more and more on all continents. When we disturb places of nature which have been untouched since the beginning of time – places which have been left to create rich, diverse eco systems and which exist in perfect harmony with the surrounding areas -
Nature does, and will always, have the final say.
We are more at risk than we may imagine. Our beloved planet is a living, breathing body. And just like our own human body, Mother Earth looks to maintain balance, or homeostasis, at all times. When one part of her body is stripped of essential wisdom, nutrients, subtle eco systems and her library of intelligence wiped, she will respond with increasingly drastic measures to maintain her balance and to protect herself. Our own body carries billions – trillions – of microbes. Some good, some harmful. Microbial balance is something our body aims to maintain constantly, with our immune system in charge of wiping out the interlopers. We are like billions of tiny microbes on Mother Earth. If we continue to harm our Mother body, she will need to regain balance, as she has started to do with dramatic effect in parts of the world through Earth quakes, storms, cyclones, droughts.

From her book ‘Flower Essences’, I found this comment from nature:
“It is not an exaggeration (although many will perceive it to be) to say that at some point in the future, the medical world will look to those who have established co-
How do you hear nature? I liken it to being able to tune in to a subtle radio station which is beaming out information all the time. You simply have to learn how to listen. Flower essences help get us out of our heads and ‘in tune’ with our own essence, which is ‘in tune’ with the radio station of nature.
