Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Garden remodel

I’m looking to add a little color to my garden, turquoise perhaps.

Love love old pots with a great patina or chippy paint. This image from country living caught my eye.

This little green house would be the perfect place to spend my summer. I may be a city girl but my heart is stuck between the pages of a country living magazine.

We have had so much precipitation this year that a mini flood came through my garden during the last terenchal down pour.  So now I have to rebuild. The wood chips are gone and my flowers took a beating. The little play house/potting shed is wet but still standing.  The images from country living are a great inspiration.

Enjoy your day

Something in the air

Have you ever had a day when something felt different somehow. Not anything you can put your finger on- just a feeling.  A day when things seemed to fall into place as little bits of magic were wisping through the air.  This happened to me. It was almost as if everything I saw had something special to it. It was like looking through a magic telescope and seeing everything for the first time.

I’m not sure what it means or why these things happen but I had a day like that yesterday. The world just felt right and all my ideas clicked. It was a day when all the cosmic tumblers clicked into place and anything was possible. I felt it but I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. I had to laugh when I pulled into Arbies for lunch feeling like my day couldn’t get any better and the girl on the talkie thing said, “would you like a free sweet tea with your order?”  “Mandarin orange please,” I said. It was the best damn tea I’ve ever tasted and not just because it was free.

You know it’s a good day when a happy accident like this happens and the results are purely magical. I took this image in a corner of a greenhouse I was visiting. I must have moved before the image was complete or maybe it was a little magic at play. Hmmmm, well anyway I’m so captivated by this image that I may have to sneak back to see if she’s for sale.

I love days like this- if only it were something I could bottle up and share with all of you. Now that would truly be magic!

Sunrise over the misty pond

BTW just in case your wondering…the weather in my fantasy land is beautiful.

I’m off to Cooly Gardens to do a photo shoot for the up-coming Mad Hatter Tea Party on June 27th at Vanessa’s place.
