Winter Solstice Newsletter 2019

Down at the depth of night now. Breath steaming mornings, crisp and clear. Short days, mild, sun-warmed back, open to the day. Long evenings, warmed by fire, feet toasty. My favourite time of year.     The time of pruning fruit trees. Such an art to know each tree, how and when she fruits. Which wood to take, what to leave. I am slowly finding my way with the secateurs. The chainsaw and axe is a more familiar route but…

Autumn equinox newsletter 2019

The Great Turning[1] is underway. Are you a part of this? Or are you looking the other way? Time for inaction has run out.

Then home with family to continue on the festivities, as this is a weekend off for us to melt into…

It will mean that we can keep our food garden thriving next year, which has become a priority.  It will also mean that our ducks will finally get…

Winter solstice newsletter 2018

Winter solstice is upon us. For us here at Ningendo, this time of year sees cosy fires, frosty mornings and beautiful sunny days. The winter sun is gentle and the short days give long evenings by the fire reading and working on projects long accumulated.
