The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

summertime ...

~love this creed from Meghan Telpner's book Undiet~ 
Each fairy breath of Summer,
as it blows loveliness,
inspires the blushing rose

the invitation ...

*the invitation*

Won't you come and sit with me
under the vines of a berry tree ?
Where all is quiet and I can hear
the sound of your breath when you are near

I'll close my eyes
and remember this time,
When I was yours
and you felt like mine

For I don't know how long
this moment will last -
But i know there's a reason
our paths crossed in a world so vast

And when you leave,
as I know you must
There's one thing
that you can trust -

That I'll always remember,
and never forget
That magical moment
when we met

~thoughts of a magical moment a few years ago, when a gorgeous owl rested in our garden arbour. I spoke to him softly, it was just the two of us , and when he winked at me ... pure joy! A little painting and love note in gratitude to the pure beauty of nature.

England ...

Finally getting around to posting some photos from May in England 
… white cliffs of dover
enjoyed many cups of tea and scones
this little shop in Stowe was a gem
moving back and forth between camera & iPad :-D
flowers everywhere
Every time I look through the photos... and there are hundreds of them ...  I am taken back to my beloved England 
a place on Earth that is not only my place of birth but part of my heart & soul …
Only a few days had rain … but it's English rain … bliss
of course … as soon as I saw Art Supplies, I had to walk in … 
And anything to do with animals and animal welfare gets my attention { and change}
Leeds Castle gardens
Dreamy Wisteria everywhere …
Leeds Castle
Taking it all in
Devils Dyke
"We talk always about our grief at leaving the land,
when we leave a place we have loved.
The grief of the emigrant,
the yearning for the land we once inhabited.
But what if, when we leave it, the land grieves for us?"
~Sharon Blackie~

… hope you enjoy these little snippets of England …
