a restful afternoon




Making smudge sticks with hand picked sage from the garden.

I brought hom ethe Abraham Darby rose from my local nursery about a month ago, and it is now flowering . I chose two from the shrub to bring inside and admire. They are bewitching in their beauty and fragrance. So delicate and fragile, the ruffles so translucent, and the scent  - fruity with  citrus notes. I'm reminded of  the saying by Ralph Waldo Emerson - the earth laughs in flowers.  They certainly bring alot of joy.

outdoor space...







my latest creation. 
a great outdoor living space, protected from  mosquitos, harsh outdoor light, rain to some extent, and wind as well. 
the family can now eat outdoors at dusk  in  comfortable, cosy surroundings.
