This is a section of our garden that does not get mown at this time of year. It allows all sorts of wildflowers to grow and flourish especially clover. It attracts bees and bumblebees regularly and is well worth the effort.
It is so easy to leave a section uncut and it also looks so well. There is still plenty of time for you to try it and see for yourself. Start with a small section and see the difference it makes. The bees will be so glad you try it too!

Both the Winter and the Summer Solstices are expressions of love. They show us the opposition of light and dark, expansion and contraction, that characterize our experiences, so that we can recognize our options as we move through our lives. ~Author Unknown

Tomorrow Tuesday (June 21st) we mark the longest day of the year. The biggest tilt towards the sun is at this time of year and it is possible to get 17 hours of sunshine in many parts of Ireland. But like everything to do with a summer in Ireland, it depends on the weather!

From a spiritual point of view we are always invited to tilt towards God and everything that is good and life giving. We are equally invited to tilt away from negativity, bitterness and darkness. Nature has worked out that balance over millions of years.

The invitation on the longest days of the year is to tilt even a little, to something good, positive and worthwhile in our lives. We remember the words of Jesus: "Come to me all who are weary and overburdened and I will give you rest."
