Like Summer

~ April 1st. was like summer ~

So we took advantage of it and spent all day outside.

And planted the Lavender after the photoshoot.

Rain is in the forecast,
So glad we had a summer day
~ So early in the Spring ~

Good morning dearest Violet AND PENNY! Hello up there, Penny!

Two of my favorite people here together, and then in a sunny, dreamy setting. Doesn't the sun and a playful day just bring such hope? These photos are magical in every way from that gorgeous settee, the girls themselves, the HATS (OH THE HATS), the dresses, and the lavender. But to be on Fairy Island, what a place where enchantment is possible and captured by your camera.

I go back to school this morning, but this image I will take with me in my heart to remind me of the play so necessary to survive the world. MUCH LOVE!

OH Violet dear, your grand daughters will grow up and forever remember these days spent in the garden dressing up like little fairies.
All they need is their wings to fly about. I use to do this very thing with my daughter... Play about in the garden, and dress her like a butter fly or fairie. She had so much fun in the magical make believe garden world that she still talks about all the fairie furniture I would make from twigs and set up little resting places for such little creatures.

Yes, you my dear are a magical Grandma! You make me want to come over and play :)

Dear Violet,
I hope your Mother's day was a joyful one... Wanted you to know you are in my thoughts. Enjoy spring!

Violet, you can see your sweet painting on my post today. I still admire it and appreciate it so very much.

I hope you are enjoying the spring days. :)

These pictures are sweet and the hats are darling. Are they your granddaughters? I don't have grandchildren yet, but I'm still waiting. Your garden is always enchanting.

It was SO good to see your comment on my July 2016 post!

HELLO! I just saw your comment! Yes, transformation, isn't that what we are about? God is so wise, good and brilliant and way beyond understanding, but I'll take what I do understand and know: it's fun to be His child!
