Welcome "Haunted Blog Tour" Patrons!


It's a pleasure to meet you! My name is Rue - welcome to Rue and Hyssop!

I'm a rather ecclectic Pagan, with all sorts of leanings here and there. But I do enjoy some of the finer things in witchy life, like my herb and veggie gardens, my cats, celebrating the seasons, my small circle of "elemental" sisters (you know who you are) and the joy of reading all the wonderful blogs out there (Pagan and otherwise) in the 'blog-verse.'

These are my 'kids' (left to right) Dexter and Daisy. They are brother and sister, rescued from a barn on a farm, where their mother had abandoned them.




I also spend quite a bit of time with my wonderful neices, one of whom is a little witch-in-training.

You'll find posts here about wine and vodka, farmers markets and gardens, moons and Sabbats, and whatever else is on my wandering mind! I do hope you enjoy yourself - feel free to stay and put your feet up.

Special thanks to Mrs. B for leading the tour!

Hoping you all have a wonderful month of October, and a fabulously fun and spooky Halloween/Samhain!

Blessings!

Rue

Your blog looks amazing, and the kitties are cute!!!

Rue said...

Thanks for visiting, everyone! And thanks for your lovely comments!

Motheralice - Dex and Daisy often sleep together wrapped around each other in one way or another.

Celia - I couldn't part with them, I'm afraid. I did try to send Antonio, but after trying to shove him in a box, I received a restraining order, so....probably won't happen.
