“Carrying out the Great Work of making an ecologically durable and decent society will require us to confront the deeper cultural roots of our problems and grow out of the faith that we can meet the challenge of sustainability without really changing much. The evidence, I think, shows that we will have to change a great deal and mostly in ways that we will come to regard as vastly better than what exists now and certainly better than what is in prospect.”

Blue pea flowers & tea

As I am running out of my green, white and oolang teas during the covid19 lockdown, I am changing my tea habits. I am diversifying my teas by adding local flowers & herbs. So an interesting addition to my teas comes in the form of Blue pea. These beautiful blue flowers from my garden, make a nice cup of blue tea. It really tasted nice with some fresh mint.

Practicing a policy of least intervention in our garden, we almost let everything be. Changes we make are usually minimal, gradual, as our needs call for & there has never been a grand plan or design for our garden. This little wild garden, shaped by all its inhabitants including us, has emerged organically over the years. And once in a while it reveals something to us from its stock of mysteries & surprises.

It was while trying to harvest Ivy gourds from a vine that had climbed up a henna tree, that we found a hive of the red dwarf honey bee. Delighted as we were about Ivy gourds, we were more delighted that the red dwarfs had made our henna tree their home.
