...Homemade Rainbows...

Sunday Drive....

Today we escaped......armed with these goodies.....lemon, mint and barley salad (using my very own preserved lemons...delicious!) and fresh baked caramel pecan scrolls.......

to here, "the Farm" aka Pottsville.....yep home of those luscious lemons......
We escaped in search of Grandma and Grandad ( who reside there part time as owner builders of the almost finished house on 5 acres in the above photo), some sunshine, time and peace.


We found.....
Flowers to crunch play and roll in and trees to climb......

Faeries and faerie houses... magic in the forest to let our imaginations run wild with joy..... (you may recognise the gumnut beanie which has been claimed by the girl)
The rest of that hand planted rainforest to explore, listening to birds, touching and smelling bark and leaves, watching tiny fish in the dam.....seeing how things have grown and changed.

but most importantly..... reconnection. Grandad and Granddaughter. Reconnection and time that cannot be bought but only cherished in it's precious moments of togetherness. We've all returned home, sleepy but with full hearts and small sighs at our too brief sojourn....and maybe just another large bag of lemons.

Ahh- what a magical time and place.
Sounds like you all know how to enjoy it fully. And the faerie house is splendid...we're inspired to build some more over here.
