Spring dancing~








Yes, we have had a spring in our step of late. I have noticed the odd happy dancer in the garden. We have been enjoying the wonderful signs of Spring. Are we not blessed to be shown signs of a new season. Its the gradual changes that makes us gasp and delight in the tree that 'popped last night'. As always, Season celebration preparation has to be the most memorable in our home. Everyone decides to bring out their talents...the nature table setter, the ribbon collector, the may pole (in our case the September pole ..does sound odd!) erector, the flower arranger and the baker. We also decided that because our gnome and fairy village is coming along, that the fairy's needed a may pole themselves. We baked a lovely mielie bread (sweetcorn) for snack and ate under the courtyard tree. Aaron has also had so many baby tumbler pigeons been born lately. We are in baby bird heaven..we have 10 so far.

A happy day to you all~

Dearest friend~As you are approaching Spring and enjoying the signs of "awakening," I am enjoying the signs of Autumn with the gentle quietude of chilly nights and leaves falling. Listening to the seasons is one of my favorite things to take time to do.
I love the maypole and know the gnomes will appreciate it. Your bread looks divine and I wish I was there to enjoy the day with you and your family. I love you, Susan

Hi Dear Suzanne. I was just stopping over to see how everyone is doing. Spring is surely there now. What a lovely time you are making of it and it looks so festive and full of life. We are looking forward to autumn. The air is changing and the evenings are becoming cool. One of my trees is almost all yellow, which is so early for that to happen. As you are springing to life, we are calming down and getting ready to head in doors for some intense knitting. Be well and hugs to you all.
