Garden Magick @ Hedgewytch Hollow (photo blog)

I’ve about knocked myself out this year revamping our gardens and grounds.  It has been a lot of work, and I’m not finished yet, but it’s also been a lot of fun, and it’s turned out to be a wonderful creative outlet.   (Spirit Chimes in the “Old Garden”)   “The Old Garden” is my…

Spring 2012 @ Our House

I’ve been working like a crazy woman this spring redoing garden spots, adding new garden spots, planting, mulching, planning, shopping, and creating.  It’s been a hoot, and I’ve loved the bonus of this early growing season.  I’ve added several photos to a new garden slideshow, and I’ll be updating this slideshow from time to time…

Spring @ Our House (slideshow)

I’ve been working like a maniac the last couple of weeks redoing the flowerbeds, landscaping, and cleaning up the yard.  I wish I would’ve kept track of how many large bags of mulch and soil I’ve gone through; I can tell you that it is a lot!  I told my husband that I must have…

Autumn Magick: Flower Power

I was just talking to my girls the other day about flowers and foliage and the seasons. I mentioned that it seems, after that first brilliant ‘coming to life’ in the spring, there is a hot and lazy period. Everything seems scorched and beaten by the summer sun, wilted and tortured by the elements of…

Road Trip, September 2011

This September Hubby & I, and another couple, went on a whopping 5 day/4 state road trip. We traveled more than a thousand miles. I have created a slideshow of 161 photos of our adventure, and through the magick of the internet, you’re invited to come along: Create your own digital slideshow

Prairie Summer Magick

I don’t know how Laura Ingalls Wilder survived the pioneer age through summer heat and humidity with no air-conditioning and not even one lousy electric fan. I would’ve died. I took my camera outside to capture some of our flowers and stuff this week and was amazed when the lens fogged over. I guess you…

Random Thoughts on a Hot Day

I’m working on one of those in-depth 36 card tarot spreads. I’m not sure anyone really knows how much work they are. It virtually amounts to a written interpretation for each card, plus a general overview, and a summation for any specific questions that the client might have. Like I said, it’s a lot of…

Dreams, Magickal Formularia, & Fairie Realms

I have a new dream to add to my journal, it’s incomplete, one scene out of an entire adventure, most of which can’t be remembered, but it’s visually memorable:  An Indian (Native American) village is burning.  I don’t see the flames, but the smoke is thick and curling, sulfurous, twisting through the air like dirty gray…

Wytchy Chit-Chat: It’s Been a Long Week

I feel like I’m waking from a fog.  This past week I’ve been sick with the flu, in bed most of the time, filled up on Ibuprofen and cold medicine, sleeping off and on, and waiting for the moment I would feel normal again.  Well, that moment has finally come– ta,da!– and none too soon;…

Tea-Time with the Witch: Spring Arrives at Hedgewytch Hollow

It seems like Spring has had to labor especially hard to make its presence felt this year, but I found hard evidence that it’s finally arrived when I checked one of my flowerbeds this week.  The last time I’d looked, these daffodils were timid little sprouts shivering beneath last year’s dried oak leaves. We had new…
