Being Still...

 
 
 
Venice was truly amazing, I loved every moment, savoured every moment, relished every moment. I feel truly blessed that I experienced those few days. Everything was perfect. I will share more about it on another post, as soon as I've downloaded my images.
 
 
I'm exhausted now, as to be expected really, but it was worth the exhaustion. So this week I'm being as still as I can, resting as much as I can. A little potter in the garden, which is filling up at a rapid pace. We've had sun, and buckets of rain, all good for the garden.
 
 
I've started a new blanket too, gorgeous, luscious colours. More on that soon, right now I'm being as still as possible.

    Stillness is not to be underestimated in its value to us all.

  4. Your Venice pics are a tease ... I can't wait to read more and can't wait until I visit in August (although very worried about the heat!) Loving seeing the progress of your garden on IG.

  5. Dear Amanda, beautiful images of Venice, blue skies and the water sparkling in the sunshine, so pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
    Your garden looks wonderful, so many happy plants refreshed by the rain.
    Otto has the right idea, plenty of rest so you take things slowly too!
