kind of magic...

A bit more of what's on my kitchen bench.
Sometimes it's the most simple of elements,
 but if the light is right it's kind of magic.

I don't know about you,
 but I need something to focus on,
 something beautiful to cheer me up.

Looking For Love...

I'm starting a new theme on my blog called 'Looking For Love'...
It's not necessarily a 365 type challenge, but I want to look for some sort of heart image almost everyday.
We'll see how I go.

Today's title is....

My answer is I don't know.
 However I did get a bit brave and think I was ready to put all the 'John Stuff' away.
Turn's out It wasn't time and I'm looking at the photo and wearing the rings,
 as a little reminder of being so well loved.

We take all our memories with us on the journey,
they remind us of who we were and who we are now.

Finding Love...

Yesterday I found this at the bottom of my coffee mug,

Isn't that amazing...the coffee grounds settled into this beautiful heart.
Just a reminder that we are surrounded by love
or given little reminders  of it.

blue flower....

From the nursery I visited yesterday.
Reminds me of Mum, who had a bush of these when we were growing up.

Piriander Gardens...

This afternoon I went for a bit of a drive in the 'Hills', and stopped off to take some pics at the Piriander Gardens.
It had a lovely end of Summer beginning of Autumn feel.

The tree plantings are beautiful, and the garden has many rare or unusual specimens....
The only thing is it's all fairly steep and what goes down,
 must come up huffing and puffing...or is that just me.

A Walk In The Hills...
