These are the last of the tulips. I promise. Maybe. The tulips in our yard haven’t bloomed yet so there might be more.
So, clearly, I am a flower junkie. I love flowers and taking pictures of them. I love them when they’re tight little buds and I love them when they’re falling apart and dying.
Part of it is obvious. They’re beautiful. But the other part is that flowers are magickal. They have amazing energetic properties. And when you work with flowers and their essences and scents you’re mingling with faeries. In the world of faeries, flowers have important uses in the lives of the faeries and their magick.
The Spring Shawn was in the wheelchair, the yard didn’t get tidied up. So seeds from plants that hadn’t been cut back, had fallen and started to sprout. We spent the whole Spring curious, exploring, speculating and analyzing what was growing and what it could be. And it was awesome. So we still do it now. It’s a great way to stay very grounded in the present moment.
Anyway … the last of the tulips we have now.
