Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

weekend musings

what a wonderful weekend it has been! After the florist visit, we went to a local pub for lunch. I decided on potato rosti topped with prawns. Yummy ! then we came home and I spent the afternoon reading Harry Potter.... and then we went to a 60th birthday dinner for Joes' brother. What a gourmet meal that was. Prawn & smoked salmon pasta for an entree...main meal was chicken breast cooked in a mustard sauce with cashew nuts and dessert was a wicked brandy custard & raspberry concoction. I came home feeling like an overstuffed wombat. What about the wedding dress that I have to fit into in October? So I got up early this morning and went for a long walk. The mornings are delightful right now...sunny but nice and cool. Daffodils are starting to spring up from the ground & the wattle is in flower. Spring must be just around the corner ! Then I came home, had a nice healthy breakfast and spent the day in the garden. I then went for another walk.
Dinner is in the oven and I am off to bed early tonight !

Well your weekend does sound a treat! All that delicious food and your walks and gardening sound just perfect. Just this week I noticed all the pretty daffodils in people's gardens and as for the golden wattle (Australia's Floral Emblem), I am gob-smacked! Our driveway is lined with them and they are the most glorious site...can you believe that it is the first time in my life that I have seen them in bloom *and I am in love with them!* I have a crystal vase on the dining table bursting in yellow and I went crazy with my camera capturing their vibrancy.

oh dear, ms*kali..don't smell the wattle too closely, it is no.1 hayfever culprit. I am actually dreading when it is in full bloom.. I suffer dreadfully from it.
I do agree though, it is the most gorgeous sight when the trees are in full bloom
