    I adore finding little secret doorways in trees! This sweet little space has clearly been used by squirrels to store their nuts....but when you feel deeper into the space more is revealed and you feel it as a sacred space. And you feel its magic! The Magic of this little tree is often found by nature loving children visiting our Garden. One little one in particular loves to sit by this doorway!  …

The birds are singing and you feel …

Balancing the male and female energies. 

    For me it is always such a powerful, beautiful flower to create in sugar. I …
