Rite of Stone, Projects Completed
I used some of the suggested herbs for the Stone Rite in S. Ravenwolf's book The Hedge Witch and added a few that were special to me.

Herbal Magick speak to me of gems and stone's ability.

As I stepped out onto the porch step there lying at the bottom of the step were two beautiful perfect feathers.
I couldn't believe it. They hadn't been there just seconds before.
