until early afternoon.
The rest of the week the weather was pretty nice....all was peaceful down at the pond ..it was very exciting to spot some baby fish in there.
Every year we have a pair of Blue Herons return to nest in the big trees behind our sheds. In previous seasons they have treated my pond as a 'take-away' outlet! they literally drop in for a snack ...and my poor wee goldfish just keep disappearing...I hope that's not the case this spring.
where the wild things live....
..my garden isn't a tame one.
A lovely wee clematis...I think it's Alpina...but I'm not sure.
I have been doing some more knitting another little baby snuggle blanket with 'stash wool'..
This afternoon some sea air was required so a quick trip to Fraser's Beach, the sea was quite rough today...the sea spray was whipped up and it all felt so good....
To live content with small means
To seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion
to be worthy, not respectable.
and wealthy, not rich
To study hard, think quietly,
talk gently, act frankly
To listen to stars and birds,
to babes and sages with open heart
To bear all cheerfully,
do all bravely,
In a word, to let the spiritual,
unbidden and unconscious,
grow up through the common
This is to be my symphony.
William Henry Channing
In the porch a little basket from my daughter with hellebores and auriculas.
Have a happy week.
