Bunny Beads

Bunny Beads

Rabbit poo is my current fertilizer.  My landscape is sprinkled with Shiva Shambo bunny beads. They safely add nutrients to the mycology underfoot in the soil.

 

I’ve been unsuccessful over the last few days posting blogs onto WordPress because my work just disappears. My poo post is a test – and a bit of retaliation for ghost work.

Great British Baking Show Sequoia

Great British Baking Show Sequoia

The giant Sequoia tree in the park where the Great British Bake Off is filmed was talking to me.

This show is filmed under a tent in Berkshire’s Welford Park. While watching an episode on Netflix, from time to time we see the tree.

Finding a still photo of the GBBS tent on the Welford property where the tree was visible was a challenge in itself. Actually these photos are stock photos and watching the show is a better way to find the tree.

I did some research and that tree on the Welford Park property was planted there in 1856. Mr. Charles Ross planted the giant Sequoia there to commemorate the end of the Crimean War.

We don’t know the age of the tree when it was planted, but we can safely say the tree is >160 years old.

In a grand perspective, this tree is young!

In season 3 Sue Perkins mentions the California Redwoods. A reference to Sequoia. Was that one of her comedic riff? Was that a serendipitous moment of Sequoia speaking to us thru her?

Or was that spoken reference to far away forest scripted by the network program? For what purpose, praytell?

We enjoy the BBC version of GBBS.  Currently there have been changes to the network for this show.  We enjoy watching Mary Berry, Sue & Mel and of course, Paul Hollywood.

Sequoia sempervirens

Sequoia sempervirens

My prayer antenna. There are two redwood from one trunk out front of the little house. On our property, this Sequoia isn’t much taller than the many Douglas fir.  I send prayer out and receive message through the tree. I smudge the tree with sage and Palo regularly with the moon.

My husband and I were married on Quinault lake by the big Cedar tree. Tree spirit and I are a team.
