Loving all this Spring~

Experiencing Spring is like experiencing something new, just like opening up a gift . My reaction every year is met with a lighter heart after a cold Winter. Constant excitment when plants I have loved , show themselves to me again...Almost like I forgot they were there. Our orchard fruit trees have so much fruit on them. This year my excitment is seeing loads of cherries growing. My veggies are thriving too. Our haven this spring has been our veranda. I am loving all these geraniums. Mr Darcy and I lounge, sloth, drink coffee, eat and talk for long hours here. Talking of Mr Darcy, I placed some fragrant sweetpeas next to his bed last night, just to give him sweet dreams... I started blogging when little Olivia was four. Look how beautiful this almost 10 year old is. Such a pretty confident free spirited angel. Big sister is holidaying in Mauritius, so little Livy and I have been doing so much together. This very tasty milk tart we baked together. She drew a lovely picture of our family that made me smile. We have been following this little Robin around the garden. Almost ready to be on its own. The garden is full of bird life. Our garden smells so sweet everywhere. So sweet I tell you that yesterday we discovered a 'Winnie the pooh' beehive way up in our courtyard tree. An abundance of bees around all of the time. Luckily this hive flew off too make a hive elsewhere. So Spring has brought renewal. Good happy energy to our home. Cant imagine what Joy Summer will bring~ A happy day to you~

Sweet friend, I was thinking about you today and remembering how we met through Kelly & Kandyce's blog. I'm so thankful for your friendship and seeing this new post makes me smile! I love spring and even though we're heading into fall and then, winter, I know I can hop to your blog and see the beauty.

Livy has grown so big and I bet you're enjoying your time together. Your yard is amazing and I can smell the fragrance from here, Love you, XOXO

Hi, Suzanne! It is wonderful to have a glimpse into your life and to see how different your season is from ours, where the leaves are changing, cool is seeping in, and the clouds are coming down! Did you do the beautiful bird paintings on top of your cupboard? Beth

Good to catch up with you here, my sista. Under the same sky as you now and all at peace at last! Life feels good. I am sure you are very busy preparing for a big family Christmas. Think of you often! Love to you, Kelly

Dear Suzanne,

As we hung all your lovely handmade ornaments on our little Christmas tree, I thought of you and the beauty you share. Thank you so much! We love them.

Miss reading your words and seeing your photos.

All love to you,

Suzanne your home always looks so cosy and welcoming. I think of you often as we drive through the French countryside. I know how you love the French decor. The babies are loving the beautiful mobile you made them. The little knitted pig found its way to Sasha and Sania's farm they have created. I hope to find some time to visit some stores when the babies are a little more settled with life so I can send you a gift from France. Mom was in JHB for a wedding and now in Harare with Nana. Enjoy your sunny days, send us some sunshine. Big kiss xxx
