Mini tree conservationist

Posted in indigo kids, trees on December 15, 2016 by Psychic eevee

Our grand daughter likes to do the things I do and now our grandson is getting older he likes to copy my husband,yesterday we went to my aunts and my husband helped her to break up an old tree,Isaac really enjoyed helping,hubby does voluntary tree conservation during the winter as well as the owl work.

Isaac was so sweet toddling around with small branches saying “manage” because I kept asking him if he could manage 🙂

Nature walk (and the dragonfly coincidence)

On Tuesday we went on a nature walk with our grandchildren ,we had promised them a picnic

Well wasn’t it clever of me to pick the hottest day ever

I ended up collapsing ,and was crawling while pushing Isaacs buggy ! Me and the heat do not mix

But before that we had fun and I felt nice and calm from the “grounding”

This kind of looks like a Monet painting

Where we went is one of the first UK nature reserves,its about a ten minute drive from our house, because it is “the fens” it is as flat as Holland but it gives wonderful views of the sky

Our grand daughter was overjoyed to see the “magical house” in the middle of the woods

It is on stilts due to flooding, the fens are basically marshland

Arwen announced “ghosts live in there” and she is right,because in the past I have got evidence of that, you cannot go in the house but you can look through the windows

We found a lovely bench that was not there last time

We sat on this ridge looking for rare Chinese water deer, we didn’t see any 😦 I have only ever seen one before they look like teddy bears with tusks, they don’t have antlers

Isaac was COVERED in jelly !!

We did our “woodland trust” activity pack “invite a tree to tea” we invited my birth tree the birch

Arwen collected lots of leaves and acorns and feathers

This was how bright the sun was !!

On the way out we wrote our sightings on the board, a buzzard and a marsh harrier

We saw two baby shire horses going for a walk

We saw millions of dragonflies, I have told arwen that I believe they are fairies 🙂 this nature reserve has half of the species in the UK including the rare “chaser”

I did not have my camera with the zoom lens so did not manage to get a picture of one 😦

So imagine how surprised I was to find one when we got home,I have never seen one in our garden before in the ten Years we have lived here !

Pictures from another of my cameras,the dragonfly was on the roof of our gazebo

I also saw these on Facebook that evening

It was a lovely day ,apart from the heat and the walking has set my pelvis and hips off but it was so worth it,if I don’t get out in nature I get really stressed
UPDATE

seeing more and more dragonfly things on Facebook

Learning trees

Posted in celtic birth trees, indigo kids, trees on July 19, 2016 by Psychic eevee

Our grand daughter is learning to recognise certain trees,she calls these “grammis birth tree” because in Celtic astrology I am a birch,she is ivy but insists she is rose too because that is her middle name,she recognises my hubbys birth tree ,the willow because she says it looks like it has “Elsa hair”

We were fascinated with the bark on the birch, it felt just like wallpaper where it was peeling off and the trunk underneath felt just like suede…amazing,we took a bit of the bark home that had shed right off,and thanked the tree, you must always thank trees and if possible leave them an offering

Druid girl?

Posted in animals, birds, celtic birth trees, druids, indigo kids, trees on July 11, 2016 by Psychic eevee

I really wish I got a photo or video ..today our grand daughter picked up a large branch in our garden and walked around with it like it was a druid staff and even tapped it on the ground like she was doing some sort of ritual calling up earth spirits ,then minutes later a rare red tail kite appeared ,they do fly over our garden occasionally but this one was circling, she called it an “eagle”
