Apple Picking

This Monday me, hubby, and Witchlet went to a beautiful Apple Orchard not far from our house and had a wonderful time apple picking. The weather was beautiful, perfect fall weather with a beautiful blue sky. We collected 15 lbs of apples as there is a 5lb per person minimum. Never mind that I am allergic to fruit, lol. Along with the apple picking I collected a nice bunch of apple branches and twigs that had already fallen off the trees. I was collecting branches while everyone else was picking apples, lol. We had such a nice time and I thought I would share some of the pictures with you.

Me and my Witchlet. You can see some of the branches I had already collected.

The hat didn't even last long enough to get a picture at the apple orchard! It looked cute though didn't it?

Awesome Finds Today!

Today I happened upon a yard sale in my neighborhood and stopped in. I found some great books and a Palmistry Hand!
I am so excited, this hand is going to look so perfect on my table where I do my readings!
I also purchased these books:
A wonderful Zodiac Book that is beautiful with a compatibility wheel and beautiful illustrations for each sign.
A DJ Conway book about Magickal and Mystical Beasts.
The Book of Irish Weirdness...:)
Divine Magic by Doreen Virtue
The Witches Almanac 07-08
And another beautiful book called the Complete Book of Herbs with recipes for food, beauty, and medicinal ones as well.
All of this for $10.00! I am most excited about the Palmistry Hand though. It has the Primary Lines, secondary lines, as well as the mounts and markings on it!!!
ok, time to clean my house and then tonight I will smudge my new findings.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

New Rules for Tarot Readings???

O.k., Today I am aggravated and I will tell you why..
As you know I am a Tarot Reader and I perform readings for my local clients and my online clients. With that said...
This past Sunday I performed a reading for one of my clients. She had a very nice session and left feeling happy and confident about her future.
Now fast forward to today when I run into my client at the local coffee shop and she runs to my car so upset because when she left my house after her session she was telling her friend about her reading and a woman who was listening to her conversation felt the need to tell her:
"I am a Wiccan and no Wiccan should be performing any type of Tarot Readings on a Sunday because whatever is predicted will never happen and it was essentially a waste of my clients time"!!!
I promptly assured her that what this woman told her is complete and utter nonsense and for her not to worry at all. Her future was safe.
Honestly! Have people just decided to start making up there own rules now because I have been reading the cards for over 10 years, I have about 20 different decks, and about 30 books that I have collected and read over time and not ONE of those books says anything about not performing readings on a Sunday!
I believe it is Catholics who do not work on Sundays because it is considered God's day however I have yet to hear this new rule applied to Tarot Readings.
Also, I am not Wiccan, however I have read a number of books on Wicca and have not read anything to this effect either.
Has anyone heard of this and if so where did it originate from?

So, to the woman who lives in New England and tried to rain on my clients parade, "Keep your new rules to yourself"!

Garden Update

My garden is finally starting to bloom! I am still waiting on so many but I am pleased to be able to show you pics of what has bloomed so far. My foxglove is the star of my garden so far this year. I have patiently waited since last year for these lovelies to bloom and it was worth the wait! My lavender is starting to bloom as well as my clematis, roses, and hydrangeas. My peppermint is clearly going to start taking over if I do not thin it out this year, it grew so quickly! I will have lots of that to offer in the store once it is ready to be harvested.
I hope you enjoy the pics, I enjoyed taking them!

Gardening Update

Happy Easter All,
Everyone is still asleep in my house as it is only a little before 7 am. I love my quiet time in the morning before anyone gets up in the house.
So lets see, this week I got quite a bit done regarding the cleaning up of my garden and getting it ready for the summer. My foxglove and Aster are so nice and leafy green already, I am really looking forward to those blooms this year, plus my hollyhock will be blooming for the first time this year as well as the foxglove. I will be able to take some nice pictures of my products with those lovely additions.
I cleaned out the gardens and turned over the soil. I had to redo the rock border as they got messy over the winter. Last summer on one of our trips to the beach I collected a big bucket of beautiful beach stones to use for the garden border. I so love the way the garden looks using them to border it. I plan on extending the garden quite a bit this year so another trip to the beach "looking for treasures" (my youngest and I call it that) is needed. My oldest daughter found me a beautiful piece of purple sea glass last year for my sea glass collection, my only purple piece yet. I am hoping to get up to the beach soon before the tourists start arriving and the treasure pickings get slim.
My new sproutlets are growing nicely indoors and I look forward to adding new flowers and herbs. I started some more White Sage and Rosemary. I already have that growing but not enough, so this year I started them from seeds. They are a bit slower growing then the rest but they are coming along.
This year I started the following from seeds as well:
Forget-me-nots, Portulaca, Red Cypress Vines, California Poppy (orange), Shasta Daisy, Cleome, Gypsophila, Statice, Phlox and a pot of Ornamental Grass.
From bulbs so far I have: Gladiolus, Sparaxis, Acidantheral and Brodiacea.
I still have a bunch of packets that I haven't started yet but most of them I am going to start right in the garden in another few weeks.
Here are some pics of what I have so far:
As you can see, nothing fancy. I use whatever I can to start the seeds in and keep them in my downstairs window where they get tons of sun and the temps are cool.




Here is my Foxglove so far:


Clematis buds:


In this picture of my youngest daughter you can see my Aster in the background as well as my other lovies. Aster is one of my favorites and is wonderful to add to any herbal or flower mixture honoring the Goddess and Faeries.


So that is what I have been up to this week...:) I better log off as my Bella will be waking up soon to see what the Bunny left for her.
Brightest Blessings all,
The Celtic Witch
