Wednesday 21 May 2014


Warm weather has arrived sooner than expected.  I'm not sure if that has more to do with an early summer or conservative expectations.  Either way, I can feel the tingle of the sun all the way down to my toes.  Happy days.  

Busy days too -- in the very best ways.  Being outside is a pleasure when the sun is warm and the wind cool.  So are long walks to distant playgrounds and lunches on the grass.  Somehow the essential work is getting done.  Laundry.  Supper.  But I try not to fuss too much.

Just for a moment, I'm living in the moment, wondering which is growing faster, my garden or my daughter.  Both are pure joy to watch.


  1. Your garden goodies look delicious and your growing girlie is just adorable. I miss those long ago days with my little ones.

  2. Those radishes look delicious- nice photos- enjoy the sun!

  3. Enjoy these days of sun and growth and little ones. Like Andrea, from time to time, I miss the fleeting days of yore, although life was so different for me that it's hard to compare.

  4. Your daughter has the most beautiful eyes! Love those fresh garden goodies! Enjoy your afternoon! Hugs, Diane

  5. What nice photos of your garden. The radishes look especially yummy and of course strawberries are the best. Your little girl is so adorable.
