These plants are so lovely. The pictures were taken a week ago and the veggies have grown so much since! Many more plants and different species live in our garden but this is a nice collection. 🙂
This will break the silence: a donut-shaped Earth painted on a tea table by my boyfriend and me! We do believe in a ball-shaped Earth. However there is some sense in the image, since we humans tend to look up from the Earth to the sky and its celestial bodies. It’s an interesting perspective at least. This month I’ve been very busy with my internship and shipping myself back and forth accross the country. Hopefully the storm will calm and I can get some peace more easily.
For some time I’ve been meaning to show you our garden, but it’s rather messy (permaculture-ish) which makes that it takes some effort and skills to take good pictures. So I did not do that yet. Today, however, we had such a great-looking harvest that I wanted to show you! The garden is managed by three people and we started this year only. It’s an allotment garden in the city where we live. The garden is a really lively place with all the plants and (mainly) insects. This was today: The pumpkins should grow orange, but since the plants are producing so many big ones already and we’re going on holidays next week (we’ll disappear on The Day Out Of Time!), we figured we may better already take some, so the plant can use its energy to further develop smaller ones. The yellow UFO-like veggies are the newest addition to my long long inner ‘favourite veggies’ list: they’re called patisson.

Here is a small collection of pictures, which resonate a lot with me right now. The plants help to see the beauty of nature, of growth, of the reproductive cycles, of being female and bearing everything in us.
Spring is booming so you can see it everywhere; the gentle reminders showing that life is beautiful. I strive to get more attuned to my cycles and the cycles of the world. I think that women should honour their menstrual cycle, instead of shaming, ignoring and hiding it. We can learn to work with nature instead of against it.
Our menstrual cycles are as beautiful as the cycles of fruit trees and bushes.
In addition, I find that using a menstrual cup and pretty re-usable menstrual pads feels way better to me than using ‘conventional’ one-time-use tampons and pads.
The yoni is everywhere! This image is a picture of a tree, a wooden door. I totally love it. I see that it resembles female sexuality and spirituality beautifully.
