Welcome to Mrs Darley's Blog

This blogspot has been created especially for those who wish to share their ideas and thoughts about the natural world as the year turns and the ancient Pagan festivals that were once celebrated by our ancestors.

Poetry, prose craft work, ancient cure craft and general thoughts and feelings on how the change in the weather and seasons makes you feel are all encouraged and welcomed.

Mrs Darley was my once next door neighbour when I lived amongst the wilds of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall back in the early 1990's. Her charismatic ways and unending wisdom lead me on a journey of self discovery as I spiralled ever further into her magical world.

She has since become the central character in the 'Mrs Darley' series of books.

The Lavender Man

This is a time of reaping and sacrifice, a time for understanding that death is a natural part of life and that in order for something new to spring forth, the old has to be laid aside.
This is a time when the golden fields yield their summer bounty into the arms of man and when the lavender fields offer their delicate perfume to the Gods.

Beware beware the Lavender man,
The lavender man,
The lavender man
Beware, beware the lavender man
He'll lure you to his bed

Lavender sheets and lavender wine,
Lavender grapes from lavender vines
Beware beware the lavender man
His charms will weave and bind.........'

From 'Mrs Darley's Pagan Whispers' (The Lavender Man)
