It's a New Moon this evening, so I'm opening my garden for a card draw. As always, I hope to send some good energy out into the world, to spark some hope and creativity. You can ask about real life or a creative project, or even a game. I can draw a card for you to meditate on, to represent the Guide you need right now, or to get you unstuck. I can draw a card for a character or can draw a card or cards for you to use as writing or art prompts--starting something new is a traditional use of New Moon energy. But ask what you will, because now is always transforming into a new moment.

I hope you will stop by my garden. It's warm this evening, the grass is green, the roses are mostly starting to bud, and the dandelions and weeds are growing. There's a few tulips and daffodils--they're thinner than I would wish, since the squirrels think they're food when we first plant them, but spring blooms are always welcome. You and I can share hot chocolate or tea and chat, and you can get a reading if you would like one.

New friends and old are welcome.

For free one card readings, you can pick from the Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle, the Daughters of the Moon Tarot (one of the round decks), or the Shapeshifter Tarot. You can ask a question, ask for a Guide or for inspiration, or you can just ask for a card. I don't need to know what your question is, but you are welcome to share it with me if you like.

The first card is free (though tips are always appreciated). Tips also let you ask me to use any of my other decks, including but not limited to my combined Susan Seddon Boulet Animal Spirits and Goddesses cards. Tipping ca also be used to request a private reading, or to draw a clarifying card. If you want a longer reading, send a direct message so we can agree on the type of reading and rate.

Please consider dropping something in the guitar case below. Readings take time and energy, and even though the Milwaukee winter, like everything else, has been affected by global warming, winter heat is pricey and old houses always need repair somewhere or other.

Signal boosts are very much appreciated, and also earn you the right to ask for a clarifying card.

I understand all too well that when people don't have cash or spoons that is generally when they most need inspiration! Don't be afraid to ask for a card if you can't tip.

If you tip, it's helpful to me for you to mention it here so I can connect your paypal information with your request. Tips should be at least $1 (Paypal charges fees). If that doesn't work for you, drop me a message and we'll work something out.

I've written before about why I do readings and some of the decks I use here, feel free to hop over and check me out. I'll wait.

I will reply to all requests. In the highly unlikely event that the number of requests nears my limits, I'll close this card draw by adding a clear note at the top of the post rather than risk leaving anyone without a response. However, I intend to stay open at least through Thursday morning, and longer for paid readings. The weekend will be busy, so if you get your request in after noon on Thursday, I may not draw your card until Sunday night. If that's all right with you, it's all right with me!

Thank you, and Blessed Be!

As always, these readings are for entertainment and inspiration only. See my "Dandelyon's Readings" page if you have questions.

A few days ago, I picked up some seed starter and some plastic thingies to turn flats of plastic pots into little greenhouses. I also picked up some Brandywine tomato seeds, but held off on getting more seeds because I knew I had some leftover from recent years, as well as a few I'd saved from organic produce this last year.

So, I planted some of the Brandywine tomatoes, and the some older seeds: The last of the Black Cherry Tomato, Chocolate Stripes Tomato, and Northern Lights Tomato. I also planted some Cherokee Purple, but not the last of my seeds, and some older Lemon Cucumber, and from last fall, the seeds of some mild Habanero peppers I got at the local organic food store.

The last thing I planted was a surprise. Quite a while ago, I had a volunteer squash plant that tasted like a cross between pumpkin and spaghetti squash, both things I'd grown the previous year in that garden. It was good enough that I saved the seeds, hoping to plant them the next year, but life happened. I thought they were long lost. In amongst some older garden stuff, I found the envelope of those seeds! It's probably a lost cause, but I planted some of them, with a prayer.

Planting older seeds is always a gamble, of course, but it's early enough in the season that I can put too many seeds in each pot and hope that at least one of them will sprout. And if not, I'll plant something else in that pot, only a couple of weeks behind the newer seeds. But that hybrid was really tasty, so wish me luck!

Here's the little babies, who are hopefully starting to awaken in their new soil beds.




(Of course I used the purple pots!)

for the Muse Fusion, but I'm tired today and can't make up my mind.[Poll #1564029]If you need more information about the story and the poem, there's a description about two posts upstream.

In other news, My Angel needed the car today, so I drove home at lunchtime, and just as I got within sight of the house, the sun came out.  Gosh, spring is pretty when the sun comes out suddenly, even when the grass needs mowing!

And if you're in or near Orlando, my brother's getting set to give drumming lessons.

wyld_dandelyon: (guitar gloves)

My new gloves are working quite well!  I’m especially pleased with them now that I’ve got the decorations firmly sewn onto both, and the dangling threads trimmed. 

The weather forecasters promised low 40s for today, so I brought my guitar to work with high hopes.  Lunchtime came and I looked eagerly at my screen, then I went outside even though the computer said it’s actually only 37.  The park is buried in snow that has melted and re-frozen a bunch of times (read “ice with a sheen of water on top”), so I walked past my bank to a plaza that has nice concrete benches that are actually clear of the wet white stuff.

I strongly regretted that I had not brought anything place over the concrete, but I was able to play several songs.  My fingers remained comfortable, but my behind is a different story!  And, of course, I’ll have to completely retune the guitar once it warms up again.

Last time I saw TV news, they had promised tomorrow would be nearly 50 out; I’m betting they were wrong.  Sigh. 

A new haiku for my “blurb”:

Outdoor music calls  /  But ice shares Winter’s cold  /  My guitar sounds sad.
