My safe place is pottering in my garden of my Sleepy Hamlet home. Taking photos of what I see. At the beck & call of my girls 🐔🐔🐔🐹. Trying to make a difference each day in a positive way. Tea helps everything.

Friday evening and spring has sprung in the chicken enclosure. First peach blossoms, ripe mulberries and the passionfruut vine is getting ready to flower.

Not sure if people aren't following me back here because they hate me or they just get too many notifications to notice I've moved :rainbowthink:

Wildflower! 

Flower for the night crowd: GREAT BLUE LOBELIA (lobelia siphilitica). A wetland plant, its blue flowers make it fairly unusual among fall wildflowers, most of which are yellow or orange. This is another flower beloved by long-tongued bees, but all its parts are poisonous if eaten by mammals. Which brings me back to its scientific name ^, given because it was thought to be a cure for syphilis. Can't have syphilis if you've already pooped yourself to death!!

Been seeing a lot of anxiety on the TL the last couple of days. I went to the river this afternoon to take some photos that might cheer some folx up or soothe some nerves.

Period pain 

I will be up all night with it and a hot water bottle is the only tried and true relief
