What do you notice about these two photos? What is the permaculture principal that is taking action here?
As you can see nature is showing us something valuable. It is showing us to use edges and value the marginal.
Even though these plants are considered weeds by many, they are actually very edible.
We can see how densely abundant the growth is because it sits on the edge. USE EDGES VALUE THE MARGINAL. The edge is a place where energy is captured. In this case the suns energy is captured and stored as thermal mass in the stones and released aiding in germination of the seed. The potential energy of the seed itself has been captured in crevices due to wind, water flow and wildlife activity. When the seed has found the perfect place to grow, nature takes control helping the plant to reach its full potential without human intervention.
This is a lesson that I will begin to value more with gardening and in my life. I will plant seeds (literally and metaphorically) along these edges to get more of an abundant yield by letting nature do what it does best. Allow abundance to flow into YOUR life by observing nature, valuing the marginal, and knowing that natural forces will provide YOU with EVERYTHING as long as your vibration is aligned with what YOU desire.
Embark on a new adventure 🌱..

#SummerSolstice } #Summer#Solstice is the time every summer when the #sun reaches its highest point in our sky and each winter when it reaches it's lowest point. These #astronomicalevents are the #Solstices and they correspond with each of our own rhythms, helping us to each understand what and where to #focus amidst the ever changing cycles of life. They're powerful #pointsintime to #celebrate the light, honor your path, consciously expand, and vibe up your life. It’s no surprise that the sun, one of the most powerful #naturalforces, has so much importance in #humanhistory. The history of humans honoring, worshiping and highly revering the sun spans cultures, time, and religion. The changing seasons, much like the cycles of sowing and harvesting, have always been key points within the human #lifecycle. The continued changing of seasons also represents corresponding stages of your inner journey. Each year on and around the Solstice a beautiful #energetic spike and opening to the higher realms of spirit is created. This is due to the Earth's #alignment with the #GreatCentralSun, the #GalacticCenter, and the absolute light bath of #crystalline, zero point, and cosmic light crashing onto the shores of #consciousness as a result. This is a #DivinelyGuided opportunity to take a #quantum leap in expanding your consciousness, healing every level of your being, And rising up in vibration to proactively claim the highest possible #timelines on both an individual and #collectivelevel. There are times to move forward, times to share, times to go inward and #reflect, times to step back and even #darknights of the #soul. In this way, the Solstice is a natural way to reconnect with life’s divine plan and to feel a deep connection to all of life and the natural world. #Reflecting on your journey is a wonderful way to celebrate the Solstice. Honor and celebrate your unique journey and the inherent cycles within walking a #spiritualpath and living a human life as well. Though humanity has largely lost connection to these #ceremonies and understandings, it is not too late to tap into the #powerofthesun and its #positiveinfluence in our lives.
