Lovely things bringing colour to my life: golden fennel flowers, profusion of pink hebe and the zinnias about to open // in my hands a top I'm knitting for my sister in the most theatrical and luscious yarn, a row added each morning and evening as the kettle comes to boil // on the table flowers for my son, to mark his 9th birthday and also balloons and a giant fruit mince pie (as requested), holding this beautiful human tight and delighting in him reading, snug in my hammock, as the sun sets // the sight and sounds of the farm's not-so-little and very enthusiastic goat kids, nibbling our hands, tickling, bleating for oak leaves (or anything really) // cutting fresh plums in half for tarts, eating them whole, stewing them slowly // savouring the summer rain and mild mornings, the return of school, beginning of kindergarten and my weekly studies, sandal wearing and overnight-zucchinis and everything this season brings...

I love your beautiful posts. Thank you for sharing. Your advent study was amazing, was wondering if you offer one at Lent?

Thanks Terri! I do have a free Easter resource you can download on my shop page - it's a seven-day resource for Holy Week. I would love to eventually put together a Lent version. Maybe in time for next year xx

Oh My, Thank You. It is absolutely gorgeous. I found your advent one, to be one of my favorite studies ever and bought several of the books from it for my granddaughter.
