Graveyard Dirt

Some new products! Ritual Bath Salts in Sea Witch and Aphrodite's Bath Water, and a business success incense called Business Boom. They are all available at Anathemum's.

Yesterday Joey and I visited the graveyard in Downtown Fredericksburg. It's a confederate cemetery but I found gravestones as recent as the early 2000's buried there (most likely family plots). The graveyard is pretty big and was very quiet despite the area and all the busy streets. We found a bench and sat down for a while to enjoy the beautiful day and spectacular weather.

Proof I was there!

I then wandered around a bit and gathered some graveyard dirt from the blessed ground of the cemetery. Joey acted as my distraction in case anyone wandered by but we were completely alone for a while. Well, not really alone, but you get the idea :) I was also considering listing some of the dirt in the Shop if anyone was interested.

Also, to my surprise I found what I believed to be a Yew tree, which would be appropriate in a graveyard most certainly. I've been searching for Yew to wild harvest some and was unable to find a bulk supplier of the tree. I'm decent when it comes to plant identification but wasn't sure (especially because it wasn't giving off it's unmistakably strange red berries at this time) so I took a sprig home for further investigation. (by this time my purse was filled with leaves and my hands were covered in dirt, like a true witch!) It turns out I think I'm right! Or at least I hope I am.

P.S... I left an award for you on my blog.
