Lightbeing we are all one dear.
Do not fear the dragonfly. Such a lovely creature



"Immortal amarant, a flower which once
In paradise, fast by the tree of life,
Began to bloom; but soon for man's offence
To heaven removed, where first it grew, there grows,
And flowers aloft, shading the fount of life,
And where the river of bliss through midst of heaven
Rolls o'er elysian flowers her amber stream:
With these that never fade the spirits elect
Bind their resplendent locks."

from Milton's lost paradise

Good morning, Mudra. It just shows we should tread lightly, watch where we step. What an amazing little creature.

Seashore the photos below are from a baby hedgehog

A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae and the order Erinaceomorpha. There are 16 species of hedgehog in five genera, found through parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, and New Zealand. There are no hedgehogs native to Australia, and no living species native to North America; those in New Zealand are introduced. Hedgehogs have changed little over the last 15 million years. Like many of the first mammals they have adapted to a nocturnal, insectivorous way of life. The name 'hedgehog' came into use around the year 1450, derived from the Middle English 'heyghoge', from 'heyg', 'hegge' = hedge, because it frequents hedgerows, and 'hoge', 'hogge' = hog, from its piglike snout. Other folk names include 'urchin', 'hedgepig' and 'furze-pig' .

Mudra ...incredible pictures of dragonflies... they are so full of mystery and irridescent beauty .. Ilove to see them!

Thank you sooooo much for posting the pictures of the baby hedgehog. These pictures show them cuddled and fearless in someones hand, are they your pictures?

Mudra Ive enjoyed this thread with deep joy and been warmed and inspired by stories that were posted and the deep hush of reverent silence the energy of the plants and flowers brought, I felt I was blessed to walk through a zen garden.- the knowing from the deep silence.

you have been and are the heart of Avalon...bless you for all that you shared and gave to Avalon

No they are not mine Day.. they were send to me by a friend and I think by now this litle hedgehog has been travelling whole world round on the internet arousing such a great love response from people that I feel he is a blessing.

We are part of that heart that is true, some shine through with different reflections as a diamond does reflract light...these are like blessed qualities to me ...such as artistic talent, linguistic talent, animals, music, people, some are logical and some shine heart qualities, yet all come through with humility

as you shine to me..the heart qualities

all those different petals of qualities make the rose and as the Light shines and illuminates their beauty...without which could not be without those petals

Song of The Flower
I am a kind word uttered and repeated
By the voice of Nature;
I am a star fallen from the
Blue tent upon the green carpet.
I am the daughter of the elements
With whom Winter conceived;
To whom Spring gave birth; I was
Reared in the lap of Summer and I
Slept in the bed of Autumn.


At dawn I unite with the breeze
To announce the coming of light;
At eventide I join the birds
In bidding the light farewell.


The plains are decorated with
My beautiful colors, and the air
Is scented with my fragrance.


As I embrace Slumber the eyes of
Night watch over me, and as I
Awaken I stare at the sun, which is
The only eye of the day.


I drink dew for wine, and hearken to
The voices of the birds, and dance
To the rhythmic swaying of the grass.


I am the lover's gift; I am the wedding wreath;
I am the memory of a moment of happiness;
I am the last gift of the living to the dead;
I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.


But I look up high to see only the light,
And never look down to see my shadow.
This is wisdom which man must learn.

- Khalil Gibran

MANGROVES OR THE "WALKING" TREES



Mangroves live life on the edge. With one foot on land and one in the sea, these botanical amphibians occupy a zone of desiccating heat, choking mud, and salt levels that would kill an ordinary plant within hours. Yet the forests mangroves form are among the most productive and biologically complex ecosystems on Earth. Birds roost in the canopy, shellfish attach themselves to the roots, and snakes and crocodiles come to hunt. Mangroves provide nursery grounds for fish; a food source for monkeys, deer, tree-climbing crabs, even kangaroos; and a nectar source for bats and honeybees.



As a group, mangroves can't be defined too closely. There are some 70 species from two dozen families—among them palm, hibiscus, holly, plumbago, acanthus, legumes, and myrtle. They range from prostrate shrubs to 200-foot-high (60 meters) timber trees. Though most prolific in Southeast Asia, where they are thought to have originated, mangroves circle the globe. Most live within 30 degrees of the Equator, but a few hardy types have adapted to temperate climates, and one lives as far from the tropical sun as New Zealand. Wherever they live, they share one thing in common: They're brilliant adapters. Each mangrove has an ultrafiltration system to keep much of the salt out and a complex root system that allows it to survive in the intertidal zone. Some have snorkel-like roots called pneumatophores that stick out of the mud to help them take in air; others use prop roots or buttresses to keep their trunks upright in the soft sediments at tide's edge.



These plants are also landbuilders par excellence. Some Aborigines in northern Australia believe one mangrove species resembles their primal ancestor, Giyapara, who walked across the mudflats and brought the tree into existence. The plants' interlocking roots stop riverborne sediments from coursing out to sea, and their trunks and branches serve as a palisade that diminishes the erosive power of waves.

It's a lovely feeling to me to be able to reach Avalon's garden once more.
I am sure one day we will all walk through it and enjoy it's beauty in 4th D and beyond !

This is a flower from Thailand .
It is also a protected species and not allowed to be exported.
This will be the only way we will be able to view this flower.
THE VERY RARE PARROT FLOWER.

I love my wee bit of garden

Had a severe phobia of worms all my life which prevented me from going near soil, until 3 years ago, when I attended a TFT {Thought Field Therapy} one-day-course. I knew little about TFT, and wondered if it might be something that might help others with MS? {i run a self-help / Therapy Group for folk with MS}
Anyhow, we did a little work on phobias / fears / addictions- I worked on my worm-phobia and after that, I was able to garden with Bare Hands- NO Gloves!!!!!! {I was previously not even able to say, or write the "W" word!!}

i have since been able to pick up worms that strayed onto the path without my blood pressure or heart rate shooting up! I kid ye not- Most Amazing therapy!!

http://www.rogercallahan.com/news/about TFT info

Anyhow, back to plants

I 'asked' some more houseplants if they were happy enough where they were situated- my big old Spider-plant said no, so I have moved him with another trailing plant that was happy enough to swap places... will see if he picks up any?

I also started asking them all, if they were happy enough with the type of water and feed / fertiliser I am using? Only 2 'said' they would prefer something different - went through a list of everything I knew of until they 'said' yes

Clive {my Clivea} is now flowering & my outdoor Hosta has 4 flowers appearing

I talk to them all the time...

I also personally believe that having an Orgone generator in the house is doing wonders for my plants... an Ebay shop I use regularly; http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/WISDOM...__W0QQ_armrsZ1

They deliver quick- not sure if they ship to the US / outside of the UK?
I bought a pyramid, and wear a pendant Every day- I truly believe it makes a difference. {Everyone I have lent a pyramid or pendant to, goes & buys their own after trying it!}

Blessings to you all

Karen
