‘Setting goals is the first step ..
in turning the invisible into the visible.’
~ Tony Robbins
Saying goodbye to 2015 ~ reflecting on the past year and all that we accomplished here on the farm.
Plantings of elderberries and many medicinal herbs .. incorporating Permaculture principles, creating hulgel kultur beds for plantings which save on watering and also, in the winter helps protect the herbs ..
exploring the farm and finding a wealth of herbs that grow
naturally here: burdock, comfrey, mullein, usnea and so many more yet to explore and find!
Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves.
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves.

Just wanted to write a quick blog on the Common Ground Fair
hosted by MOFGA here in Maine this past weekend.
The Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm where we had our booth were wonderful to us
and of course the Alpacas are just amazing magical creatures ..
The children of Maine were amazing and inquisitive and loved to ‘sniff’ the smelly stuff.!
It was a joy for me to introduce them to essential oils and watch the look of wonder on their faces.!!
And to Kristyn and Chuck thank you for all your hard work
and making this possible event possible for SunRose!
The harvest moon hangs round and high
It dodges clouds high in the sky,
The stars wink down their love and mirth
The Autumn season is giving birth.
Oh, it must be October…

The season is changing …and Im loving the Fall Season ..
the falling leaves and beautiful colors!
Though we had such a very dry summer ..
the brook was all dried up.
We finally got some big rains today ..
and yes I am grateful.!
End Quote ~
October’s the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down —
October is red
And golden and brown.
Wishing you a joyous Autumn. til next time, Rosanne
Hoping next year to have herbs,
elderberry tinctures and dried elderberries
to sell on SunRose.
So stay tuned to the future happenings here.
Life is a journey for sure .. each and every day a treasure.
I am so very grateful and so very blessed to be living here
on this amazing land with my life partner ..
he has made this incredible move easier for me.
And sharing life with him has been a true adventure.
We will be at the Common Grounds Fair / MOFGA this year .. our first ..
and hopefully, not our last.!
Look for us at the Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm.
There will be a ‘sniffapalooza’ going on ..
AND you get to meet these amazingly beautiful creatures ..
they have a wonderful gift shop
where they sell their fiber for knitting and also clothing.
