Generally the ants put block or white rocks on the mounds – typically black in winter, to absorb the sun and warm the nest, and white, in summer to reflect the heat.
The earlier the ants put the white rocks on and the more white rocks that go on – the hotter the upcoming summer.
I have listened as Grandmother Parisha, A Cherokee Elder, has shared stories about Nature.
I love the Grandmother Pa’Ris’Ha quote “Be in Nature, stay in harmony with Nature, it is you…Learn of Nature, then understand yourself!”We can learn so much from Nature.
Sydney is pretty hot now but cooled with evening light rains and brief but strong cooling winds. I Love It.
The Trees are shedding bark and my husband and I and our Daughter have been clearing out where we live – like the trees shedding what is no longer necessary.
Our son was just happy to play, play, play – I’ve put a pile of things in a box for him to sort over the next few days (before the new moon on the 4th)
Wishing you all the Best this Holiday Season may you have great times in and with Nature.
All the Best
