Blossom, buds and bees

Today's working bee was a joyous celebration for these inconspicuous seedlings. We worked for three hours preparing and sharing and learning and gifting, to make the earth just right for their arrival.

We brought straw bales.

We brought new soil.

We brought creativity

and danger.

We made connections.

We sang songs.

We showed off.

We made friends.

We laughed.

We loved.

We brought gifts to share.

We shared.

We were generous.

We rested.

We welcomed the seedlings into our family and were welcomed, lovingly, in return.

June working bee

Despite the cold, we turned up.

Despite the chill, we warmed ourselves,

we took responsibility for our actions,

we dug holes to plant more life,

we got down and dirty,

we worked together,

we laughed,

we shared,

we taught,

we learned,

we looked deep into the future,

we planted,

we explored,

we held hands and joined in,

we pondered,

we uncovered secrets,

we shared longings,

we dreamed,

we united,

we restored,

and we were wondrous.
