Garden update

I managed to get the mulch resulting from the tree pruning in front of our property - a whole truckload for free! So this year our front native garden is getting a decent layer of mulch (I'm usually stingy with it because in the past we paid for it). The munchkins and I worked on it for nearly a week, digging up African Love grass and mulching. It looks like a real garden now - like a section of Kings Park almost. I've been sitting out there taking photos of dew and insects and playing my guitar..well practising playing guitar. Bliss!

Women's Circle

I have just recently joined a Women's Circle which has newly established here in the Hills. It's something I've wanted to do for a while, but hesitated because of the politics and ego I had experienced in a similar set-up years ago. This seems to be the right one for me though. What a wonderful group of women. No egos, no politics, no power plays. Just a diverse gathering of women, sharing, for the sole purpose of encouraging and supporting one another's personal and spiritual growth.

I'm really enjoying the richness of the gatherings I'm attending lately, whether it's here or drumming, or a Choice Theory evening or whatever. I'm starting to feel out my niche, where I feel I belong. Late bloomer or what?
