Angels of Abundance


Doreen Virtue’s books on the angelic realm have been a great resource for me since I started my journey of connecting with my angels in 2008. I was recently given the opportunity through Hay House Publishing to review Doreen’s newest book Angels of Abundance , which she co-authored with her son Grant Virtue.
   
As with most of Doreen's books - this one came to me at a time that I needed to be reminded that I'm not alone on my journey – that my angels are there to help and guide me, I just need to call them (and allow myself to receive their response).

When I have reviewed books for Hay House in the past I received a hard cover book. This time it arrived in the form of an e-book. Can you say the angels were signalling that I was in need of many reminders ASAP.  As I clicked my way through the pages I was reminded not to give up, to keep working hard towards my dreams and most important to pay attention to the signs that the angels give in response to my requests. 

In this book Doreen and Grant provide answers to questions about creating affirmations and how long one needs to do affirmations. Interesting - about a week after reading this book I was asked if I would be interested in conducting a workshop about affirmations. Not only was the workshop's theme perfect - it (workshops) was something that I have been hoping to branch my business in healing into. There really are no coincidences - and if you are reading this review, there is a reason why this book - Angels of Abundance - is being brought to your attention.

This book is an easy read, wonderfully inspiring and informative for anyone who is seeking a quick read on how to manifest an abundant life. And a wonderful reminder for anyone who needs a little nudge from the universe that asking is only part of the manifesting process - action and faith are also required.

Angels of Abundance - Heaven's 11 Messages to Help You Manifest Support, Supply, and Every Form of Abundance reminds us that we already hold all the power and resources needed to fulfill our life's purpose, we only need to allow ourselves to see what is revealed to us.

Garden in the Country -Over a Cup of Tea

Welcome dear friends, regular readers and new readers of HHL! It's been a whirlwind of activity for me this spring/summer ...trying to keep up with our gardens in the country while trying to manage the organizing of our home in the city.
If we were sitting down over tea today ... I would show you photos of the gardens a couple weeks ago..


The peony were as lovely - if not the loveliest this year ...and were a wonderful surprise to arrive at the country home to.


Of course the lilies and hostas were looking quite grande as well ...


and my beautiful roses ...oh they were showing wonderful green foliage and a magnitude of buds!!! As we left for the city after this visit I was excited that the following week we would return to a symphony of roses ....


For our tea today I'm serving a freshly baked croissant, and some juicy watermelon...


for the croissant there is also some rose jam from France ...
Today we are enjoying our tea ( by tealish) in this fine bone Royal Albert casual tea cup. I think its yellow background and floral motif is perfect as we are talking gardens.


Now that we are all set with cup of tea in hand and some treats ... lets get back to the country gardens ..fast forward a week...


On my return to the country gardens the following week I could see the lavender was coming into its own!


Can't wait to bunch some up and tie it with ribbon...


the butterfly garden ...starting to show pops of colour ...


As I made my way through the rose gardens ... I was greeted by these beauties....
 As I took a closer look at my beauties ... something  was definitely not RIGHT!


(click on photo to enlarge)
Where were all the blooms I had anticipated?  A good majority of the rose bushes looked beyond naked with leafless branches.

Closer look ... I was devastated to discover these .... I've heard about them , but thankfully had never had them strike my gardens. 

But along with the picked naked branches where there should have been beautiful rose blooms... were stubby remains ... like something had debudded  them... was it possible that these green worm like thieves ate the buds too? The mystery began ...


back inside ...Gabbana would not leave the window ...I quick look did not reveal her chipmunk friend that taunts her ( I think on purpose) nibbling away on a nut ...but she was persistent ..and Dolce then joined in on the stack out... a closer look revealed ... 


This little cute darling ....


But a glance out to gardens ... also revealed there was a bunny party going on in the rose garden...


YES .. THREE more bunnies were frolicking about in my roses .... could they be the ones eating the rose buds? and to add to the mystery our maintenance guy informed us that he had spotted deer in the gardens on a couple of visits.  So, I'm not sure who the rose bud thieves really are ... perhaps all (green worms, bunnies and deer) ...the mystery remains.

Have you had your roses attacked by any of these? What did you use to protect your roses and prevent further damage...


Oh and in case you were wondering ... there is nothing quite as luxurious as rose jam on freshly baked croissants..

With Love and Gartitude,
