iris in bloom

What in your life is calling you,
when all the noise is silenced,
the meetings adjourned,
the lists laid aside,
and the wild iris blooms by itself
in the dark forest,
what still pulls on your soul?

Plant of the Day

Tuesday 21 March 2017

In the Scree Garden of the Beth Chatto Garden, Essex, the Iris unguicularis ‘Peloponnese Snow’ (Algerian Iris) was in full bloom - what a beautiful plant. It needs a sheltered, free draining and sunny site - I’m sure I can find space for one of these in my garden!

12 days of MM ladies (with a few changes)

So as the name says it’s 24 days of glorious ladies of Murdoch Mysteries. For 24 days there will be 12 different ladies (2 days for each). All sorts of works from arts and fics to playlists and mood boards are cool

It will start on the 20th of March (Tomorrow UTC+02:00). You can see the “rules” and schedule below :)

Rules:

- the tag is #12daysofmmladies, it might change if we get more characters. (Each character has to be suggested at least three times so we can include it into the event.)

- you DON’T have to participate each day and if you miss a day then don’t worry you can still send your work this way :)

- the tag has to be one of the first five tags so we can track it.

- the works have to center around the character of the day but it doesn’t mean that you can’t include other characters, even whole squads.

- it’s preferable if the fics can be here but don’t hesitate to send us the link(s) if you write somewhere else :)

- if you prefer to submit works straight to this blog instead of tagging then that’s cool too :)


Schedule (final):

20.03. Iris Bajjali
22.03. Sally Pendrick
24.03. Jean Hamilton
26.03. Ruby Ogden
28.03. Nina Bloom
30.03. Edna Brooks
01.04. Lilian Moss
03.04. Emily Grace
05.04. Rebecca James
07.04. Margaret Brackenreid
09.04. Eva Pearce
11.04. Julia Ogden

It’s 24 days now but the tag will still remain #12daysofmmladies.

*signal boost for the event will be appreciated :)*
