My Photo
Name:
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

my vintage garden ~ August 29

I looked for Grandma's garden & found my own





this is a view of the arbor that dear Joe made me for our 10th anniversary. I have painted it verdi blue - but I am thinking of changing it to graphite * which is a dark charcoal* behind the arbor is the view which I see from my kitchen window * the path leads from my back door to my back gate * over the arbor I did have a rose growing but it kind of attacked people as they walked through * so I dug it out and planted a chinese star jasmine...along the left side of the path I have a rose garden planted with iris and on the right, a row of gardenias - in the cement tub, I usually plant either herbs or some kind of vegetable ~ being near the kitchen, it is wonderful to be able to run out and grab something fresh.......

Hey sweetie...I see you got slammed by spam. There's a trick you can do with Blogger now where folks have to type in a scrambled word. Supposed to stop the odd spam from happening.

But besides that nonsense, I love your photo and hearing about your week's cleaning always inspires me!

Oh no.....spam! Thankfully I've installed a program called "bad behaviour" onto wordpress which seems to pick up the little nasties. I do love the photo of your garden though Robyn. Thanks for sharing it.

What a delightful arbor! It's gorgeous, and I love the colour too. I've said it before and I'll say it again, your garden is divine! :)

Oh, what a beautiful view from your kitchen window. I would love to be able to see it in person but I am so glad to visit it here.
Blessings to you today.
