And so I could happily play dress ups with Ari every day. I think
I could also quite happily spend a whole week in the blog where I
found these lovely images. It's filled absolutely to the brim with the
most wonderful links to lovely things, and it's one of my favourites:
The red Alpine style house is built into the side of an extict volcano. My grandparent's built it as their 70s dream house.
This beautiful purple weed's flowering everywhere...
This blossom looks like snowballs at the moment. It's so very very dreamy. My
grandmother planted it 30 years ago and the plums... taste like my childhood.
The border of the garden bed was made from the volcanic rocks which littered the property when it was purchased.
The first day of Spring greeted us with sunshine and blossom-filled breezes. I took these photos in the garden this afternoon. Everything is looking so wonderfully... springy! Jonathan created the fairy garden for Ari last year. It fills the flower bed beneath an enormous fir tree (much like how I imagine the faraway tree might be). It's a little overgrown and in need of a tidy, but still our favourite part of the garden. I found the little fairy in a junk shop. She sits on a rock inscribed with the words...
'life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away'
Happy Springtime! or Autumn or Rainy Season... depending on where you reside
Ari's outfit: vintage 1970s overalls: op shop, star print spencer: Baby Gap
