Natures Wisdom from my Garden Feb 2018
Previous Blogs Nature’s wisdom from my rural English garden Posted February 2018

Snowdrops remind me of tiny lanterns. And being some of the very first flowers to shine in the garden after long Winter days, they bring much joy to people who see them, in our garden or anywhere else. The essence of snowdrop offers the energy of revelation, to help you ‘get something’ you can’t quite find the answer to, helping you with the ‘aha’ moment you’ve been searching for. I love using flower essences in season, when the flowers they are made from are actually growing. It seems to compound the energy and the effect of the essence.

This is another reason I have come to work so closely in our 2 acre garden and to establish my flower farm here. Working with nature by observing the very subtle changes right up close, seeing what’s happening on my doorstep, means a world of difference of when to act in tune with nature and when I may be ‘following the rule book’ and doing something in the garden because everyone else is doing it ‘because that’s when you should be doing it’.

Lighter days are here, with sunlight hours increasing as the wheel of the seasons gently turns towards Spring once again. One day we have warm air currents and sunshine, only to be replaced with arctic blasts and snow flurries or cold rain the next. But nature always knows what’s coming, and only pops her buds into flower when the time is right.

In our Kent garden, just one small family of snowdrops close to the Oast house have turned their lights on and opened up in flower. Their relatives further up the garden in the more exposed apple orchard are still shut tight, knowing there is more deep cold weather to come.

In 1887 Michelson and Morely conducted experiments designed to show that a field existed which connected all life – a popular theory among scientists in the 1800’s, and an accepted fact of how life works according to ancient cultures and today’s indigenous societies. The Michelson and Morely experiment was repeated 100 years later by the US AirForce and the results published in Nature magazine, August 1986 (journal 322). Bottom line, they found the field did (and does!) exist, and measured precisely as Michelson and Morely had predicted 100 years earlier. Advanced technology meant the field could be more accurately measured and recorded.

This unseen field which connects all life runs through you and me, through my garden and yours, through all of nature, connecting the whole planet together. My snowdrops are part of this field of life (talked about in my January blog as ‘L fields’/fields of life through Dr Harold Saxton Burr PhD and his experiments on trees). Tim Berners-Lee replicated this field or natural ethernet through the ‘world wide web’ or internet we use every day. We can access trillions of different pieces of information at any one time from where we are. Nature does the same through her field of intelligence. The trees, seeds, bulbs, flowers in my garden are fully aware of what is going on in nature around the Earth. And they have their own instinctive timing of when to grow and bloom, because of the world wide web of nature.

There are generalities to all seasons, of course. In Spring, seeds, bulbs and buds begin to show signs of coming to life. Summer is when nature is in full flow and full flower. In Autumn nature shares her bounty for us to harvest before returning to seed. And in Winter she lays dormant, resting after a full wheel has turned, to have new energy for Spring once again. But within each season, there are micro seasons, and what happens in my garden is influenced by many local conditions, as well as global patterns. Aside from the nature I can see and learn from in these micro seasons on my doorstep, there is the world of nature which is unseen.

This is where the ancient cultures begin – with everything being connected - and where science is just arriving. The way to create one world is to look to nature. Learn to listen to nature and read from her library of intelligent wisdom. You make a world of difference by acting in tune with the nature on your doorstep which is part of nature’s whole field of life.

31 January was the first blue moon/blood supermoon/full lunar eclipse since 1866. Mainly visible in parts of the USA and Australia, we did have a clear, crisp night to watch the super supermoon rising, and for the garden to be bathed in brilliant moonlight all night long.

















I will be talking about the moon’s influence on seed and plant growth in my workshops. Also the effect of birdsong on flowers and nature. Click the picture for workshop details.

1st February is Imbolc in Celtic tradition, when Mother Earth is pregnant with potential as the wheel of life turns from the Crone phase of Winter into the new light of Spring and her Maiden energy of fertility, potential, new energy, rising light.

Preparations are underway to sow a new flower meadow area this month. New raised beds are also in the planning stages for more annuals for lots of celebration flowers. All planted in tune with my garden, of course!
