Mothers Day Flowers
Magnificent May!  Warm sunny days, then cool, sometimes rainy nights.  Life is offering up plenty of exciting changes for me an I've been busy doing home projects, like painting veranda furniture a beautiful warm terracotta.  Good to see something old being given a new lease on life!

This chair and stool that live in my studio were also transformed.  I couldn't resist bright colours for this room!

And finally I will leave you with a journal page.  I still journal most days and consider it an important part of my life.  You never know what will turn up on the page!

I hope all your May days are happy ones!

Windy Sunday

Autumn Cyclamens

Such a windy autumn day today!  The trees are swaying down low in the blue skies that go on forever and my wind chimes are going crazy!  Not cool enough for a scarf and coat yet though!

These cyclamens in purple pots I chose for their beautiful colours.  They should see us nicely through the winter, since they are a cool, mountain dwelling plant.


These pink impatiens I planted in a large ceramic bowl in my front garden.  They blend well with the purple tiboucina already growing there and should flower for a couple more months before winter begins in earnest.

The sun is shining, ambient music is playing and I am enjoying my Sunday.  Hope yours is a relaxing one too!
