Magnolias trees that survived a sleepy winter. Happy.
Baby turtle (size of a nickel)… we found her on a pebbled country path today..
the kids couldn’t wait to tuck her in their sweaty palms +
set her free in the old mossy pond – deep in the woods .
She found her perch on a knotty log + couldn’t wait to
dive into the clear pool below her. Happy.
The elegantly chirping swallows arrived this week.
The barn’s rustic timbers are softened with their artful nests – ready for… Happy.
We had to share some vintage beauty – to celebrate the beginnings of this glorious season!
Covet the birds.. dance with the butterflies.. crave the woodland flora..
Paint them, gather them, watch them from afar… feed your soul + get busy LIVING.
Rambling stone hedges from our dreams..
(actually, from Great Britain.. which qualifies nicely).
Cover them with an emerald of moss.. brambly and wild…
and let them tumble about.. here and there… through the wood and the fields…
A cultured adventure in living history. A few favorite snaps from our escapade.
(we considered stealing a few of the orange leather-covered chairs …
but figured we’d be spotted on the street). We stole some cool shots instead.
