"I just had to share a couple of photos (shown above and to the right). Today I went down to Percival Grove for a bit of exercise, and when I sat on a bench I found I was looking at the other side of the Triple Tree. As I stared at it, I thought I could make out an eye on each trunk. As I moved closer to the tree I could see the 'eyes' were very clear on two of the trunks, and at first I thought someone had painted them on. But no, they had formed naturally from where lower branches had been trimmed off. They've even got eyebrows! What do you think?"
"I listened to a couple of trees and found they were responding to being blown about by gusts of wind. Apart from the obvious creaking of the branches, which sounds quite dramatic with an ear pressed to the tree, the sloshing of the sap was more intense while the wind was gusting, as if it were being hurriedly pulled down to the roots to keep it safe until spring."
"I am trying hard to eat sensibly, drink lots of water and do a bit of exercise, though the weather's been too yucky for much walking and cycling. Yesterday I found myself thinking about Ganesh for no obvious reason, and I remembered I had a little brass Ganesh pendant that I bought in the 1970s and had never worn. I wondered where it might be, then it turned up in a box when I was looking for something else. I Googled Ganesh and found he is a deity for new beginnings and enterprises, so perhaps he was calling me. Anyone who's survived a head transplant is worth listening to!

Before Samhain, and earlier in the year, I ran similar blog posts about witchy gifts. Those online stores are now selling amazing things for Yule and are worth checking out. Here are links to some of my previous posts:
