Country Garden Dreaming



Wishing you all a wonderful weekend 
with a little country garden dreaming

For the bees in a Collage of Life garden.

A stately country garden bird house.

Twist and twine to bring it all together.

For a perennial border...

To light the way...

For organising this and that...

English country garden attire...

On to London.... 
  From one of my favourite stores 
along Pimlico Road, Daylesford Organic
They have since closed this section of the 
store but I love these images none the less.

 My little sister, Kathleen, arrives tomorrow.
It has been two years since we last saw each other.
I am getting ready for a whirlwind tour with her...
first stop Hampton Court Palace and
somewhere along the way, 
a coffee at Daylesford Organic.

I am one of six kids and the oldest. Kathleen
is #5. What a little devil she was back then...
some things never change :) People say we look alike.
What do you think, any resemblance?


Happy Weekend to one and all!
Jeanne

  2. Any resemblance you ask? I thought you were showing us a new portrait you like to use in your profile, but it is your sister!
    The photos above with all the tools are really nice.

  3. Well one can certainly tell you are sisters! Two lovely faces to be sure.

    And oh, off to Hampton Court! How perfectly wonderful. I do love that place. What a dream it would be to attend the flower show there! Maybe next year.

    Have a wonderful time with Kathleen!!

  5. Oh thankyou Jeanne for taking me on such a lovely tour, makes me long to be in England again.
    How wonderful to have your sister for a visit, I do think you look alike. Although my sister and I keep in contact, via the net, on a daily basis, there is nothing better than actually being together, spending time with your sister is a precious gift...enjoy.
