Hello, dear friends,

Yes, I’m traveling again with a very busy itinerary this time. While here in Paris, I completed a book cover shoot for a major publisher but have also spent much of the last week showing my sister the sights. We’ve had numerous adventures (many involving pastry and ice cream), and the weather and spring bloom couldn’t have been prettier. Since most traditional spring photos feature lots of pink blossoms, I thought I’d share some of the other colors that are also brightening up the days. But don’t worry, of course I captured the pink blossoms to for you to see and those will be coming up next. :)

Thank you, as always, for your visits and comments. Life on the road can have its challenges and your presence in my thoughts is like carrying a bit of home with me.

much love,

G

p.s. I’m sharing on Instagram more frequently than I’m able to post here so do follow along!

Spring greetings, dear friends!

As promised, images celebrating the delights of our spring garden. Though, to be honest, these were photographed last April – the garden is blooming even earlier this year but as I’d never shared these photos, I thought you’d enjoy seeing them. The ranunculus, parrot tulip and akebia vine are from the farm of my dear friend Erin and the rest were cut from right outside.

Spring is incredibly precious, isn’t it, with its symbolism of growth and rebirth? Life has been challenging and bittersweet here of late so the sunshine, flowers and birdsong bring welcome joyful moments. And I’m awfully pleased that spring danced in early for soon I will be traveling again and I hate missing even a single bloom. Adventures await and before long I’ll be taking you to new locations as well as familiar favorites, all graced with spring beauty.

Until then, many more spring images to come. My hope is that you are experiencing such wonderful explosions of nature where you are or savoring the last sweet days of summer down under.

with love and gratitude that you are in my life,

G
