Almost The 4th of July.
Summer Solstice came and went over a series of spectacularly brilliant full moon nights. There were four that were on my radar as being very special, and meaningful.
The news pierced the tall sun burnt tall grass symphonic sways like a hot knife through pumpkin pie.
A Mountain Lion got a calf.
The cattle have been moved to another field.
Weather has been hot up here at 905 Feet above sea level.
Last Chance Road.
This is a wilderness where people live with nature. The gate at the front of the road, opens onto gravel, windy meandering dirt and tall pines. You can see off over the 50,000 year old lagoon to the yonder ridgeline across Swanton Valley. There are mysterious rock lines on the side of the ridge. Here the colour in the surrounding fields is spun gold and the scent is of sun burnt pine needles, in early morning.
Dust. Oak. Heat. Horses. Lions.
Lavendar is the local and regional favorite. Spanish, English, and French. Our lavender speaks a romance language of many places.
Night Blooming Jasmine explodes under the milky way in the inky darkness.
Lemons, Limes, and Grapefruit, Pomegranate Flowers and their Fruits create the heart note, along with Apricot, Pears, Apples.
Hibiscus, Rose Petals, Geranium echo the season
Sticky Monkey Flower adds the zenith of aphrodisiac attractant.
Oak Leaves, Moss, Lichen, Rock Rose: Labdanum, Yellow Lupine, and Yellow Brugmansia, and Iris Orris Root create a vertical accord that becomes the base note that brings you circularly back into the heart where Starry Nights shine above. Beautiful soft warm breezes. SUMMER.
