May Fey Giveaway
I just love May. The warming of the earth and the re-awakening of the green. I've been planting optimistically in the raised garden beds and pots (no annuals or perennials yet.) My peas are nearly a foot high, and the lettuce can be eaten as I thin the rows to make room for larger heads. I have onion, raddish, carrots and swiss chard coming up.
I finally finished removing the rampant Larkspur from the flower beds (although I notice it has now populated parts of the lawn.) The flower garden is much happier it can breathe without the choking invaders and although my forget-me-nots didn't survive, the wiggly grass was rescued and moved in the hopes that it will have more room to grow.
A generous offering of milk and honey was left near the foxglove for the Fey. There is no reason for some of the wonderful plants I have, to grow so well in a 3/4 shade garden so it's them I thank for keeping my "full-sun" perennials coming back so beautifully every year in a small, shady, corner garden.
And as a gift to you, I offer my May giveaway. A gorgeous deck from Brian Froud, called "The Heart of Faerie Oracle." This lovely set includes a hardcover book that describes all the cards and their meanings and details how to use them, giving you options for spreads.
As usual, all you have to do is be or become a follower (or indicate that you have subscribed to the RSS feed.) Please also ensure you have a way for me to contact you via your own blog or email on your profile page. Leave a comment on this post, and you are set!
I will draw the winner of this lovely deck on the May full moon - Tuesday, May 17th.
May you be blesssed by the awakening Spring - and by the Fey!
