I would like to say thank you friends for your birthday wishes and sweet comments. I was so touched by your kindness and thoughts. I am truly grateful for your friendship. Although we are miles away, your friendship seems close to me.
We are truly delighted for a good amount of rainfall in the last few days. And the forecast is even getting better, as more rain is heading our way, which means cooler weather and a greener, happier garden. Listening to the pitter-pattering sound of the rain, mindful of my fingers while peeling, coring and chopping some of our home-grown fruit and vegie as I prepared them for pickling and preserving, I can't wipe the smile off my face as I was full of anticipation to see the end-result of my hard work. I don't know about you, but I find this process therapeutic and relaxing.
Hope you are all enjoying some good weather. Thank you for stopping by.

Myriad recipes come to mind, when I realised a basketful of apples were picked from our yard.
Somehow pleased with myself.
Everything looks happy except this little doggie
Everywhere I looked I see lush greenery
The birds are happy to see this bath not empty, as the rain fills it up each day
This dovecote is useful to all creepy-critters and crawlies
Time to recline and enjoy some down time.
One of my market finds, love the rose scented candle made by a lady who lives up the coast
A blue H&K Tunstall vase, purchased from a junk shop, filled with Mr Lincoln and Tropical sunset flushes.
Thought I'd use this Wedgewood tea tin as a vase. Trying to be creative? Maybe not.
