Photo Friday – May Flowers

It’s probably a tad obvious to go from a photo friday about April showers into one about May flowers. But that’s what this week has been full of. D & B have been making visits to the nursery and coming back with containers of flowers to add to the beds. The veteran plants have been doing their part to prove we don’t need anymore petals. The smell of lilacs is beginning to perfume the air and everyday a new flower emerges from one location or another. All in all I love the month of May. The weather starts warming up, the world starts to become colorful again, and it also houses my birthday. πŸ™‚ And this year we’re putting our book on sale. So one new thing to add to the fun of May. But mostly this week is all about flowers. Beautiful little faces, delicate lacy petals, and the fruit that some of them turn into. πŸ™‚ Hooray for May.

Photo Friday – Rain

Right now I’m sitting in a sunny room drinking breakfast tea. The idea of clouds seems so distant. However, this entire week has been filled with them. Covered by them. Fluffy and white. Fluffy and grey and pink. Thin and silvery. I know they have scientific names. And perhaps I could even remember a few of them. But the beauty of clouds is that they can take whatever shape you imagine. Whatever adjective you decide to use for them. And not only are they full of imaginative possibilities they also come full of lightning, thunder, and rain. The beautiful sky splitting purple lightning that was impossible to catch with my point and shoot. The booming rumbles of thunder off in the distance. And the heavy drops of rain that soaked my hair and feet. With all those beautiful sensual experiences my camera felt so inadequate. However, I still tried to capture a bit of it. πŸ™‚

Photo Friday – Spring Cleaning

With hints of spring come blatant demands for cleaning. The dust on the dresser that was hidden by piles of projects? Quickly revealed as said projects are finished (due to spring energy) and moved in puffs of sneeze worthy dust. The spots on the window that were unnoticeable in grayer weather? Pointed out by beautiful sun streams. The somewhat musty blankets and comforters? Just starting to feel too warm and begging to be washed and packed away until next fall. So out come the brushes, the soaps, the rags, and the sprays. Everything is going to sparkle soon. And yes, I’m finally packing away my mini Christmas tree.

Photo Friday – Hints of Spring

This is the week. The week when it became obvious that winter is saying goodbye and spring is saying hello. And while there is a time for every season, I’m definitely happy to smell green in the air. Little white flowers, tips of green grasses, tentative leaves peeking out. There is something so delicate and brave about spring. The cool air still lends itself to hot tea and good conversations. Oh yes, and did I also mention there is chocolate? Lots and lots of egg shaped chocolate. And all of these are good things. πŸ™‚

Tea – Numi’s Emperor’s Pu-erh

I love tea so much I thought it would be fun to start talking about it. And I think that Numi’s Emperor’s Pu-erh is the perfect place to start.Β Yes, it is a bit spendy. Especially for bagged tea. But it is worth it.

The scent instantly took me back to a horse barn. In all the right ways. Continue reading
