H is for ~......... hurry up Harry !!!!

I thought I might be able to introduce Harry but still no sign of my new grand-baby-to-come... I thought he might be born today as it is my friend Peter's 75th birthday! But maybe he will be born exactly 9 months to the day he was conceived... 9 months ago the day Daisy died. Who knows. Only he does I guess, plus his guardian angel. He is all ready to come, his head is engaged, he is facing the right way and his mum is ready for sure !!! But he must wait til all the stars are in exact alignment for his life he has chosen. I hope he will be born in the sign of Pisces.....
I wandered around early this morning, even before the sun peeked out... to find some H words.... at first I couldn't think or find any but came up with a few from my own corner of the world in Woodford...the first one is under the apple tree..


I HANG my jumpers on coathangers to dry in the shade of the branches of my ancient apple tree... this is a vintage crocheted cardigan.. I love it! as hot a pink as you will ever find.. I wear it with a skirt, leggings and my Dr.Martens. Then we have my HENS... they thought I was going to feed them, so they stood very still while I took this photo...

below is a bee HIVE that I have in my garden. There are no bees who live in it but oneday I would love to have my own bees. I am looking into an apiarist course at the moment. Not sure if I am brave enough though.

sweet HONESTY seed pods are gorgeous.. another common name for them is silver dollar.. they self seed all over my garden. Love it!

then I have my HONEY - organic of course ! and my HERBAL mix that I take 3 times a day to boost my immune system. It is made up specially for me by my HERBALIST and has quite a few immune boosting herbs in it - astragalus is one that I am sure is in it

and last but not least I have HEARTHSTONES... these were sent to me by Sr.Kathryn Knoll for my 50th birthday. They are wonderful and I love them... small clay hearts with words pressed into them...there is also a book that you can buy that goes along with the hearts and each heart has a small reflection. The first time I pulled a heart - the word was: Wisdom. Ha! meaning to me Sophia - the Goddess... wise. a gentle push in the right direction perhaps?


You can buy these from Sr. K here:
HEARTHSTONES

and Sr.K even has little words of wisdom online here:
Jubliate says..

so that is it for H.... except that I must tell you that ABC Wednesday is the brainchild of Denise from
Mrs Nesbitts Place.. .I joined in ABC Wednesday because it is fun and it gives me an idea once a week of what to post about.. but of course, I don't follow the rules.. I am supposed to visit the other members blogs to see their photos....I did the first week that I joined but it got too much for me to visit over 80 blogs..

signing out from Woodford... where the birds are starting to chirp, the sun is starting to shine and I am waiting anxiously for a phone call...

Astragalus has improved my life! It's kept me healthy during the worst of times. I hope you know it shouldn't be taken by those with asthma and not for a prolonged period of time in bigger doses.

I hope you get that phone call soon Robyn!

Robyn I love the photos. I would love to visit your farm and see the apple tree, bees, and hens. It all looks so peaceful. I know you are excited waiting for baby Harry to arrive. Maybe he will be here before next week when we use the letter I and you can post a picture of him with the word. Incredible as if to say being a grandmother is the most incedible experience!

tinker said...

I love all your 'H's - those hearthstones are really lovely, especially.
It's so hard to wait for those babies to arrive, but they do it in their own time. Hope all goes well for baby Harry and his mum~XOXO

Hello, Ruth. I followed your page through Autumn's Meadow blog. Its a lovely place! So your baby Harry is waiting to be born? We always think we know the right time to bring a new life to Earth... LOL They're wiser and know it better! I'm sure soon he will be in your arms... I'm a mother of a sweet little boy of 4, and it's perfect to have a new life at home, congrats!
Hope to see you around soon!

Nydia said...

And I always wanted to know whose idea was for the ABC Wednesday!

Kim said...

I LOVE sweet honesty. I haven't seen it for years. It was a childhood favourite pastime of mine to peel the outer cover off to reveal the pearly insides. I love your alphabets and the wonderful things you find to go with them.

What beautiful H things you have. I think you'd be a great bee keeper by the way.

Krissie said...

I forgot to add Robyn... I am allergic to honey and hate the smell and taste of it! I thought thats because I have hayfever? Not sure....

Ninnie said...

Do you have that Grandbaby yet? Hope all is well. Loved your pictures. Love Hugs and Blessings

It would be wonderful to keep bees - they are so magical and of course they are a link to the Goddess. Our local Celtic saint is Bega - her name means `bee'.
