Unexpected yet incredibly well timed - was called to prepare a flower essence around noon today. Above shows the bowl shortly after settling it in perfect suspended balance between two of the repurposed field rocks. It contains three vibrant blooms from the largest surviving Montana Blue Centaurea. This flower essence is all about vision that's both crystalline and comprehensive. Can think of no quality more relevant to these times.
one of the fleece flower's stalks topped by an exploding baseball-sized sphere of still tightly budded flower panicles. the Fair Maiden lives! holding breath a bit waiting to see if she blooms as well.
Discovered the echinacea that's appeared utterly eclipsed by the foxglove has managed to thrive enough to produce a side-shoot clump of itself. This was completely concealed and utterly unknown to me before the staking. Have spent some high octane quality time in this general portion of the evolving sanctuary bed today. The energetics feel good. See below the rough facsimile of an isosceles triangle formed by the three vibrant blooms that offered themselves for the essence bowl.
