I usually spend as much time outdoors gardening as possible. Over the years I’ve found many surprises while digging. Some finds have admittedly been, unpleasant. Yet the ones I recall most are the many amazing things I’ve been lucky enough to discover, everything from old rusted rings, to unique stones.
However, in our most recent dwelling, my mineral finds have been the highlight of all my digging/finding, thus far.
When we first moved here I would find a quartz every so often, but last year, while planting dahlia bulbs, I found a whole catch of quartz clusters, geodes and swirls of agate.
I’ve traveled wide and far to hand collect minerals, sifting dirt in diamond mines, and visiting private lakeside destinations. I was more than stunned to find some of the best specimens in our own yard! How fortunate that a person who recognized the value of what was dug up, found it. I’d be lying if I said this was a unique occurrence to me. It’s really another example of serendipity in my life, being drawn to the right place, at the right time, and being present enough to notice. Is it good luck, a faery gift, or happenstance in synchronicity? I’d like to call this type of moment, divine timing.
