Indulging in spring

Spring has always been a shifting season due to the 
accelerated pace of schoolwork that unfortunately
comes along with a good dose of test anxiety and all 
those beautiful things that go with it ☹ ....................
An emotional charge is hardly unavoidable...Thereafter, 
 Easter break usually falls within exam preparation 
and ever since I can remember, I find myself in the 
middle of a whirlwind once the season is in full swing. 
But aside from dealing with study challenges, spring
 remains the perfect occasion to seize the moment and 
indulge in its pleasures.The splash of colors, the chirping 
birds and the smell of flowers drifting in the air, are 
those components that make the season really great 
despite everything.

So, it was breezy, sunny, filled with fun and joy.We 
shared our days off between the two homes, it was 
all about grilling outdoors, eating together with people we
care about, it was a way for us to unwind from the day's 
craziness, catch up on each other's news and talk through 
anything that was going on.

We made wreaths of wildflowers, walked in the countryside,
enjoyed stunning views and felt relieved and carefree, 
at least for a while.

The moment has arrived to start counting down the days 
until the end of the school activities.Running the race to 
the end doesn't seem so exciting as the beginning but we 
have to be strong. Everybody is tired at the finish line
 but there are less than twenty days left of school here!

A promising summer is all ahead.
Let's hope that some of those brilliant sunny rays
will be reflected over us and our agitated world.

Wishing you peace and happiness

P.S. Some lovely ladies, took the time to email me
as the comments are turned off. Thank you
so much, I'm really touched.

The country garden

Time to wind it all up for a while and sit down to write a note 
on this blog. I apologize for not getting in contact with you 
before…whenever I scroll down to see my favourite blogs, 
my heart does a crazy dance not only of curiosity to see 
what I have missed out, what you are up to, but also because 
I feel guilty of not having left a comment on your sites. 
I detest «musts» and whatever I do, I want to do it with my 
entire mind in a peaceful moment.And it happens that my 
schedules don’t allow me this luxury anymore. 
And I feel so sorry for this. 

On the flip side, I have to be sincere. Blogging has been an 
incredibly fulfilling journey for me, it has opened my eyes, 
and I see the world differently now. But I currently find 
myself at a bit of an impasse on my blogging activity. 
So, I turned off comments on my page; it doesn’t look fair to 
not reacting when others take the time to be gentle and kind. 
And yes, all those four years, I think I got an overdose 
of inspiration that I need to handle from now on.

For the rest, things are fine and our idyllic spot to spend 
the Easter break is waiting for us to enjoy. A lot of garden 
tasks have been done even if it can sometimes look like there 
aren’t many things to do for early spring. 
Last winter snow and rare 
freeze have seriously damaged several shrubs, bougainvillea 
mostly. We pruned out all dead stems, some plants are still 
without leaves, it seems they will survive though. 
Nevertheless, spring has brought happiness to the yard and 
the perennials thrive buoyantly in cheerful gangs of colour. 

Glad to share my photos with you 
in honour of Easter and of Mother nature,
I’m leaving you with a huge THANKS
and I wish you a blessed and joyful Easter time.

Please, feel free if you would like to e-mail me. 
You can find me or follow me on Instagram as well.
