C... is for

I have decided to join in ABC Wednesday.... I thought it might help me focus on all the DELIGHTFUL things in my life ~ if I had to make a point of searching each week for a specific item, then I might stop fretting about my spiritual journey.... so I wandered around my home looking for all the things that I could find that started with C.....

Calendula ~ which is growing in my vegetable garden. It happily self seeds, willy nilly.. I love it! It is also known as Pot Marigold... and has wonderful, magickal healing properties... Calendula oil is a must in my medicine cabinet.... also growing in my vegetable garden is Chamomile.....

I love the bright yellow daisies.. their little heads have been brightening my days lately! then I noticed the Clover....

which is growing in my 'lawn'... I patted it and thought I saw the clover faeries flitting in and out of the dark green leaves... while I sat and looked, I had white butterflies flitting about my head.... I wonder what my ancestors did with their 'lawn'.. did they fret about mowing it each weekend? Or did they just let it be.....then I saw my Citrus tree.... this one being a lemon

and nestling among the leaves was a Citrus Caterpillar..... nearly ready to Cocoon and turn into a beautiful Citrus butterfly..... but the one thing that C is for me... is my Chair...

My big pink snuggly Chair... which wraps its arms around you when you feel sad or lonely. The chair that comforted me when Daisy died.. I slept in this chair for over a week when she died... crying. And when I look at this photo... outside the window.... what do I see.... but an angel looking in... (well..sceptics would say that it is the sun.. but the sun was on the other side of the house... and i KNOW it was an angel.. it was Daisy, I am sure)

Welcome to ABC Wed it has been a lot of fun for me to find things for the week for the next letter. I think that you will really enjoy it.

Lucky you that you still have all those wonderful flowers in your garden. All we have is a mess and snow.

I love this post. I suspected from the moment I began to visit your blog you were an herb woman and it is so true! I cherish each delicious comment you make about your world. I have goggle earth on my computer (the free version) so the pictures are old, but I can hover over your house like the Angels do and bless you often. What is that roundish looking building next to your house? I try to imagine where your garden is and where the chickens run. I see mostly shapes, not so much distinct details. Know you are regarded fondly by many, Dear One, Blessings, Sr. K

Welcome to ABC Wednesday. It certainly gives one a new perspective on the things around us.
Great choices for the letter C. Your chair looks comfy.

What a splendid idea! I love calendula. I have a little bottle of calendula oil, it's very soothing.

Julie Marie said...

Loved all the C things, but most especially the chair. I am jonesing for a comfortable overstuffed chair where I can tuck my legs under me (and get rid of Dan's recliner).

I see the angel too.
