I have always been of the mind that accidents are bad..
but I have recently been discovering that that's not strictly true.
Some mistakes have sidled over so close to the edge that they can quite easily turn in to serendipity, just like that.
You see, if I had not gone the back way home (to avoid the after school clutter) I would never have gone down the wrong road..well I didn't notice the no exit sign...it was very squitty & small!
And then I would never have seen the sign for the walk way...or at least it might have been years & years until I found it..
And look at the magical place we would have missed seeing this spring!The tuis love these cherry blossoms to bits & the valley is filled with the sussurating sound of their happy play & their melodic song of joy.
Early bursting buds of the pussy willow..
Sometimes there is sun, as we head in to early spring.
It's a funny old mixture..chilly, moody, sunshiney blossoming..
My dear friend Ruth took such good care of me this past week..we went off daffodil picking & wandering in the woodland property at the bottom of her orchard..
Ruth has befriended a little native duck called a scaup. Sadly he is all alone.
But comes when called & has no particular fear of human company.Aren't daffodils glorious!
I think it could be handy for all kinds of things.
I love these pressed glass vases that I have collected too.
There's something so friendly & elegant about their shape.
I am collecting them for picnics..They look so cute with this heart straw don't you think?
I had fun over the weekend taking lots of vintage picnic pictures.
The baskets are looking good.
Now, you'd never imagine such a perfect walk way & picnic spot would lie just up here would you..but it surely does!
Hope you're having a lovely week.
See you soon.
