It was one of those weekends when I couldn’t find the time to schedule my regular weekly posts. One of the reasons was my youngest son’s graduation ceremony for successfully passing his final apprenticeship exam. He is now officially a chemistry lab technician. He even picked up the award for the second-best graduation in the year. It was unbelievable what he had shown in terms of motivation, diligence, ambition, and discipline during the entire three years and especially in the last two months. I know you won’t have noticed (LOL), but I am very proud of that and how he achieved it. From the beginning, it was no walk in the park for him.
But this is just a side note that I just wanted to share. However, I thought I’d share some photos of my summerly garden from time to time when time is rare, starting with a plant that has been amazing me for a year now, a Mullein. In German, it is called “Königskerze” (Kings Candle) which meets its visual, majestic, and strong appearance.
Last year, when I was on my education for healing plants, I wished to have one of those in my garden and planned on checking where I could get them. But I did not need to. One day I noticed some huge leaves at a strange place coming through the ground. It looked like a large lettuce head… lol. So, there were only big flat leaves last year. I had not expected such explosive growth of this plant at the end of May.
Within 1.5 months it grew from zero to this immense size… and it is still growing and expanding.
I am amazed not only by this fact but also by the fact that it just appeared shortly after I wished to have this plant in my garden. Was it me attracting it or the plant and my soul already communicating about its scheduled arrival? Another thing that I think is special: It is a protective plant which means, it protects from bad energies and supports harmony and balance. The ancients planted it in front of their houses. Now, look where it happened to grow: In front of the main door and garage. Meanwhile I learned that you cannot simply plant it. Because the plant itself decides where it wants to grow and settles where it feels fine. Seriously, I appreciate this plant as a gift from above.
In Love and Light
