More from the Sorcerer’s Garden

“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.”  Rumi

And so go walking mindfully, letting your feet touch the earth, each step a song.

moon gardener’s tips

For night perfume, plant Jasmine, Honeysuckle Evening Primrose, Moonflowers, Stocks and Heliotrope. Watch for Persian sprites and djinn’s who are attracted by the scent and will be inclined to visit your garden.

Most importantly:

Always leave an overgrown patch at the foot of the garden for the wild spirits to come and play!


The hillside and the water garden are images from summer( which I am looking toward!) The hillside I used a slight painterly effect in the sky!
