and the Rain Came and Came and Came……

We have experienced significant rainfall here in East Tennessee this spring. With it, lush green and rapid growth with all my perennials and vegetables at Serenity Cove.

Take a look at the size of the Collard and Kale greens! and my clover crop. Wonderful for juicing and steaming and restoring nitrogen to my soil. Yearly I add lama manure, probably the finest fertilizer for the garden. It feels like top soil and has not odor.

For a long time our ancestors, for us our grandparents, would mention and offer spring tonics to cleanse the body systems. Castor oil given by the tablespoon by your grandmother? What about Dandelion tea – for our livers – when they pop up in early spring.

Do you ever notice how God gives us what we need?

What do many of us do today? Kill our weeds and dandelions with cancer-producing Roundup?! There are natural weed killers like salt, baking soda and vinegar. My grounds are abundant in clover – which is feeding the soil with nitrogen.

I sit upon my wrap-around deck viewing the mountains and watching the many birds land close to me for seed. Bluebirds, finches, gorgeous, red-headed woodpeckers, swallows, cardinals and more.

Do you every stop to marvel at what we have in nature that feeds our souls? The beauty, joy and simplicity and perfect order of it all?!

A visitor to one of my rental cabins this spring. We think it could have been a mama and her cub – probably looking for food. There was no food left out or being cooked when this guest arrive, tore out the door, and when discovered, left.

I walked down my road here at Serenity Cove and a flock of baby ducks and their mom scattered out from beneath my bridge.

Last fall for the first time, a beaver created it’s home over the creek that runs adjacent to my road. They are very busy animals and when they began stripping bark off my willows, I had to wrap all of them with chicken wire.

I have 2 large turtles in my pond and many fish, so bring your rods fishermen!

Remember to bring your bikes if coming to Serenity Cove. Wonderful biking nearby.

Come and relax and restore in the beauty that surrounds you and take some time for yourselves, cleansing, balancing and restoring – with attention to the colon, digestive system, stress reduction and diet planning, releasing all here at Serenity Cove.

Because our bodies are constantly bringing in and storing toxins – thought is being given to purchasing a new Infrared Sauna which is beneficial in purging the body of heavy metals, bacteria, viruses, parasites etc.

Give me your comments please! I appreciate your input!
