Wildwood COTD : Card 11 – The Woodward

My first thought when I pulled this card out this morning was: Protector. However, he is so much more than that. He knows where everything in his domain is and who lives in his domain. He’s watchful at the moment but he can be mean and aggressive in the pursuit of protecting his domain. That lovely looking lynx by his side is certainly a wildcat I would not like to tangle with and looking at this chap, I wouldn’t want to utter a single breath in his presence, never mind a word or two! However, his knowledge about his domain is unsurpassed.

Today, I’ve borrowed some of his qualities. I’ve been protecting my garden, adding to it, changing it and I’ve felt the spirit of The Woodward nearby throughout most of the day. I’ve changed how things are not only because I can and want to, but also because some of my lovely plants need out of their pots and into solid, good ground. And I have some plants that while would survive in the ground, can’t go in as I have yet another (yes another!) low lying ever green root to take up. But not today. For today, things are as they are and I am happy with the changes that I have made.
