What I have been noticing this week is that you don't have to put up a for rent sign or become a pied piper to get nature to move into your space. All you have to do is nothing, just open the door, or lay out the lace and it will come.
Some of you who have been following this blog for the past year of so will already know about my art installation in a secret location, now well into its second year of doing just that. It is very slowly being reclaimed by nature. Here are just a few of the most recent pictures I have taken. The changes are slow but I am really enjoying watching the moss very slowly move along the lace stone. The piece that fell off the tree and onto the birch bark is almost invisible now.
Then I noticed what was happening in my own backyard where the doilies had been hung for my son's wedding.
oops that last one is actually my lace top and a little seashell on a string I have been wearing around my neck for the last few days. ( sonia had tied her pincushion parcel with it)
You can see snails are hanging out on the lace as well as number of cocoons for moths and spider nests. I am pretty excited to see what becomes of them.
I heard a flock of chimney swifts this evening in our neighbourhood. A very good thing since their numbers have been steadily declining with loss of nesting spots.
Today we had an earthquake and severe storm warnings but tonight all is well in the land of resurrection fern.
I may not have an empty shelf or a clear surface in my home yet but what I do have is beautiful and makes me happy.
