Summer lovin

Never enough picnics
Never enough blue sky
Never enough BLUE!
Never enough 'Let's go' moments
Never enough enchantment...

Summer is welcomed in and it seems to vanish as quickly
The weather is shouting summer but the calender is telling me that autumn
is approaching. I'm not sure how I feel about it - regretful that there is never enough - or happy for another season.


Summer breeze makes me feel fine - blowing through the jasmine in my mind

A First for me

Valentines day has come and gone and if you were lucky you might have received one of these or even a few.
It was a wonderful day but I am very tired,
so it is time for one of these and perhaps ...
One of these, I hope you all were spoilt like me.

Today I love




It is a day off for t
his busy florist. Carpe Diem! Walking this morning I came across a gorgeous frangipani tree. I have always loved these flowers. They are like gold in NZ were I was born and harder to grow but here in Sydney they grow in abundance.
I love the look of them, their perfect shape, colour and especially their smell, they are gorgeous and this time of year are blooming.
It takes me back to my childood. We as a family were lucky enough to spend time in Hawaii, we used to find these on the side of the road on trees, collect them, string them on a necklace and wallaa a Lei. Perfect to wear with a Muumuu.

Back to school

It's hard to believe but it is that time already. The Summer holidays are behind us and the New Year rages ahead. It's February already and 1/12 of the year is over. I still feel as though I am catching my breath through Christmas. Wow. It's been a lovely summer - filled with friends and home. I love just spending time in our home and home town. The last few summer's have been busy ones and it was lovely just to relax a little with "home" things.
Now it all seems to have sped up again, there are books to be bought, and covered. I must say I am not the best at this job. I may be creative but somehow didn't receive the gift of being able to cover a book with cover-seal without creases and bends. It is just not my forte. Perhaps it is time to pass this task on.
It is also a time to think about the year ahead - activities to plan, dancing, singing, music, sport - I am already exhausted. Somehow we all seem to manage it and to juggle it and somehow The Christmas tree sleeps for a few months and then just magically appears. I won't wish the year away as I think it's going to be GREAT. I am looking forward to a new one. I have some new ideas sprouting and I must say I am excited. I will share later. I hope all your school years have started off well.
For one of mine he won't grace the gates of the school again - he has officially left. Quite amazing to think about.
