It's such a nice time of the year here just now.
Everything is still new....
and fresh & sparkling.
It's funny the ways of doing things that we get used to, isn't it.
For instance, a vase needs to be, well, vase shape don't you think? But when I spotted the Spode vase below in "The Dog Shop" it suddenly dawned on me, that the flatter waterlily shape would be perfect for displaying camelias, like this pretty Sprite.
That's what life is all about really, isn't it
Gazing at this cheery, cheeky wee face, it seems quite awful to eat think about eating it! But they are most edible & look so pretty sprinkled through spring salads.
I started with the violets. I decided to whizz my organic raw sugar in my little retro grinder & then tossed the violets through the sugar. The mixture is now brewing/imbueing in my amber glass jar & every time I lift the lid to poke at it all & see how it's getting along, I am overwhelmed by the most heavenly scent.
I had to stay at home & hose down on all the paving!
We're going to "do" the bit on the right next.
A policeman stopped the pair on their return journey but it was a random stop: license check. The nice policeman was more interested in Lucy than anything else.
I found Jane on Trade Me a few weeks ago & took a shine to her, so when little Nina popped in for a visit I showed her the dolly's picture & asked her what she thought. She pondered for quite a wee while before declaring that "I would really like to have that dolly"....
so we bought her.
There was a time when you were advised to place your baby to sleep outside under a tree during the day but you must not, on any account, cuddle/coddle that child.
A cute little daffodil planted from a mixed bag.
So wonderful of you to come by.
Thank you, as always, for popping in to visit.
I hope that you have a wonderful week filled with lots & lots of memorable, sweet moments.
