I walked in one of my favourite spots last week...
The temperatures were mild, the skies blue, and the sun was shining.
It felt like a gift after a few days of rain.
A lovely display of naturalized Crocus flowers popping up from the soil...
or is it croci ?
Love the way that the light illuminated their petals.
Gnarly trunk and twisted branches above a bed of snowdrops and cyclamen.
This is such a sweet structure on the site...
it was a place where the original owners would take tea and eat their picnic lunches when they were first designing the gardens.
I've been dreaming a lot about garden design
the beautiful spaces that people have been able over the years to cultivate.
A well designed garden, once established, is a living legacy.
I try to visit many of the local gardens and join in on the various garden tours.
Some of my favourite things to do are to peruse the garden centres
leaf through gardening books
watch TV shows on gardens.
Are you familiar with Sharon Santoni?
Her garden in France is stunning.
She is the founder of My Stylish French Box...
I have subscribed to these boxes and they are a real treat to receive...
the current box theme is focused on a Parisianne woman.
One of the partners is the renowned perfume company of Annick Goutal!
The February Box is almost sold out
you might be able to order one if you are quick!
Go here to get more information and good luck!
I am excited as Sharon has just launched a new digital magazine.
She has a giveaway on her Instagram page.
As I sit here at the table in my Humble Bungalow Kitchen
I can hear birds outside singing
the clock chiming
the fridge humming
the keys on my lap top
a rumbling motorcycle speeds by
the neighbours dog barks
taking time to stop and notice the little things
those moments each day that can easily slip by if one is not present
Hope that your week is ticking along nicely!
Thank you for stopping by The Humble Bungalow.
