Wayne and I have had matching Celtic knot rings for two decades, although we didn’t for a few years in the middle there.
Many years ago I was wearing this ring while putting sugar cane mulch on the garden beds. It was only when I came inside that I noticed it was gone and a search of the garden showed that it was seemingly gone for good. Oh no!
Then, several years later, I decided to move the compost bin, pulling apart the wooden frame and scattering the compost around the garden beds. It was only when I got to the very bottom that I noticed something shiny in the earth. My ring! I’m so glad I got it back. It was pretty mucky after years in the dirt but came up gleaming just like new after a clean and polish with lemon juice.
