Birthday Celebration!

Okay, well, in fact, my birthday was yesterday. But I was out all day celebrating. We had lunch with my family at Ivar’s Salmon House on Lake Union, then David and I popped home to change into shooting (grubbier) attire. As a birthday treat, he took me to the Bellevue Botanic Gardens “Garden d’Lights”.

Normally it’s season has ended by the first of the year but they extended it due to bad weather over the holidays. We’d never been and what a fantastic way to spend a birthday! And as we were walking on total awe of the display, a full moon emerged from tattered clouds, looking for all the world like the “ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas” of Alfred Noyes’ fabulous poem The Highwayman.

My Birthday Present


Each year we attend the Bellevue Arts Fair in July. Last year I discovered a new artist there, Marina Terauds, a master engraver and lithographer, and fell in love with all her work. I bought two small pieces but the one I really wanted was this one, “Nature Book”. I had put it out of my mind but my totally awesome husband contacted Marina and bought it for my birthday, having it especially inscribed by Marina. What an incredible surprise! Here it is framed and hanging in our dining room. – g

Twelfth Night, Or What You Will

I just had to post a festive image to mark Twelfth Night. It’s one of those wonderful old pagan holidays that I wish we still celebrated… – g

Happy New Year!

New beginnings. And a fresh restart to this blog. It was begun originally as a chronicle of a difficult time in my life (see earlier posts) but now I feel it’s correct to cast off its black template, change its focus and expand its purpose. Shifting its focus from just my home and garden and the life parallels contained therein and expanding its purpose and scope to cover many more of my activities: art, design, photography, writing, garden and home. Observations, inspirations and useful information is what I hope to communicate.
