Just a little daydream…

bougainvillea

Growing up in Harare, we had a massive bougainvillea tree in our front yard that we affectionately named The Faraway Tree – from the Enid Blyton book – seeing the bright blossoms always brings back happy memories of climbing trees…

It’s Monday…

April 27, 2009

I did it! After a very, (very!) intensive, and much needed spring cleaning session chez nous yesterday, I thought I’d start the week off right by going for my first run of the season. Oh, there have been oh so many (perfectly legitimate) reasons why I hadn’t started till today, that basically come down to me being lazy. But… no time like the present!

Here’s where I’m off to…

Springtime in High Park is so beautiful that is won’t seem nearly so torturous – except for the running bit…

Hope you’re enjoying a lovely day!

Happy Earth Day!

April 22, 2009

Happy Earth Day! – a great reminder to pause and reflect on how amazing our Earth is and how much it definitely is worth preserving and cherishing!

Here are a couple beautiful images…

karibaThis is Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe – one of my favourite spots in the whole wide world!

sunsetfortcollinsI took this in Fort Collins, Colorado – the sky was absolutely breathtaking!

I wanted to celebrate Earth Day outdoors, however, the rainy weather has interfered with my plans so instead, I’m enjoying nature through some lovely links.

For some beautiful photography, check out Tree A.ware – gorgeous of trees, birds, flowers and the world around us.

And since it’s Earth Day, brush up on a your own Green know-how! Check out – Green is Sexy – a fabulous site with loads of great green tips by three friends – Didi, Megan and Rachel (McAdams – know for The Notebook, State of Play and upcoming The Time Travellers Wife .) But I digress, the blog is fun and full of tips and tricks on how small green changes can have a big impact.


All ruffled up…

 Tis the season for romantic, feminine ruffles – they’re everywhere – on pillows, dresses,  blouses, jewellery and even the blossoms on the trees!

daffodilfield

What better to greet the dawn of a bright Spring morning that a field of daffodils?

To start the week with something fun, here’s a little give-away – I recently was lucky enough to get two copies of this month’s Style at Home magazine. I’d love to share one with someone else!

styleathomemay09I will mail the copy to you – wherever you are in the world…

Just leave me a comment below and I will randomly select one on Friday 🙂
