I loved seeing this word, doula, attached to the garden and the lady's lifegiving hands. Magical.


Wonderful picture.
So sorry we did not connect.
Nova Scotia, worth visiting again:)


I love photos of hands, and this one is extraordinary!

Gloves are not my thing either.
She obviously like to feel the earth in her hands.
Beautiful photo..

Beautiful picture and oh that feather is gorgeous. Reminds me of the Owl feathers I have been gifted with this year.


I have never heard of a garden doula. I also don't like wearing gloves in the garden, but I don't think I am as spiritual as this doula. I would love to hear more about her.


Gloves are for sissies!

She isn't so much spiritual as *spirited*. With her permission I'll write again and show a photo of her with our beloved Zohrab.

Although come to think of it she is Goddess and Religion of her very own Earth Church. This is the impression I was left with anyways :)

We should all be so like her.

Marilyn are you going to Jordan?

My name is Eva Nicholas, founder of the Wabanaki Gardeners which is a community based garden group here in Wekoqmaq first nation and would love to talk to the Garden Doula. I too feel that gardening the original plants is very spiritual and one of my missions to do so. I am currently researching what she is already doing and think she can save us some time and energy.You think you can connect us?

Hey there, Gillian! What an experience you are having...It's fascinating to hear someone talk about something they are truly passionate about and how they are dipping into a natural & spiritual history that is so rich and often ignored. Have you taken more photos of her garden? I'm eager to read more of your posts (I've been away for a month) to find out what you are up to.

Thanks for your comment, and yes. I'll contact Jayme and put her in touch with you.


It is fascinating to think of the word doula attached to nature. I love it. And that feather.
