Remembering when I was little.......









Hi Sweet-peas......


I just adore roses and if I could have a bunch in every room of the house forever a happy wee 
squirrel I would be. (also if we had a home)
But if asked what my favorite flower is, the answer would be as it has been since I was a little girl......

The dainty and always pretty

CORNFLOWER.

My lovely grandmother would especially make sure they were in her beautiful garden.
One of my earliest memories is being in the garden with her picking them.
When I see cornflowers now a wonderful sense of inner peace swirls inside me, and the lovely memory of childhood.

We are staying in Kingston at Warren's mum & dads crib (oh thats a holiday home).
Marie, Warren's mum has a gorgeous cottage garden with a gentle stream running through it and an ivy covered bridge. 


Happiness is picking a bunch of cornflowers.......


Oh I love sweet-peas too!!!!!!!

Thats you.....


Love V
