Wow!! My last post was in March??? How did that happen? I don't know...I can't say. I can't even say that I was working on some big project that took up all my time. Well, unless I can just say "life". That is my only excuse. But, the ol' Homestead has been calling to me. I am back. I am sorry for leaving anybody hanging. And to those who stuck around and believed that I would one day find my way home again...thanks. I look forward to getting to know all of you again. To visiting your blogs again and reading your words. I have missed you all. Blessings....
Welcome to Heartsease Hollow. They say it isn't the final destination, but the journey itself that really matters. This is mine... I am a woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend...and a witch.
This blog will be a journal of my path as all of those things. Gardening...being close to the earth...brings me a little peace in a rather chaotic life. I love watching things grow and being a small part of the process...so ya, I'll be blogging about that. My family keeps me on my toes with their antics...so ya, you KNOW I'll be blogging about that. I do not come from a long line of witchy descendants(that I know of). I have no claim to any special connection like that. Hey, I wish I did. All I know for sure, is that for as long as I can remember I have felt a witches blood flowing through my veins--even before I knew what that meant. I have heard the wind calling my name and felt the power emanating from the full moon. I have been lackadaisical in my studies thus far, and I want to change that. I want to rededicate myself to my path...so, ya, I will definitely be blogging about that. Come join me on this journey if you like. I can use all the help I can get.
The Heartsease, or Wild Pansy, very different in habit from any other kind of Viola, is abundantly met with almost throughout Britain. Though found on hedgebanks and waste ground, it seems in an especial degree a weed of cultivation, found most freely in cornfields and garden ground. It blossoms almost throughout the entire floral season, expanding its attractive little flowers in the early days of summer and keeping up a succession of blossom until late in autumn.
