and all that means for a little boy....and his Mama
we live inside a whirlwind together
alternating between the confronting layers of concentrated energy, honest passion and the tenderness of one tiny boys love
mothering accosts me and kindles me, flattens me and fills me
it builds me inside the eye of the storm

Their sweetness now preserved in a pretty case to tuck delicately into our clothes for future reminiscence... and just maybe to inspire more lavender and lemon cookies...who knows? wink
There are lots of tutorials for lavender wands around but I referred to my latest library book companion for some simple instruction. This book is seriously great...though Australian. You just may find yourself, like me, eyeing off plants in your wanders in a completely new and inspiring light! Even the lavender.

The kind and lovely Tiffany from the delicious Owl and Fox awarded me this *One Lovely Blog* award very recently...
and the ever sweet Amber from The Nutrients of Life awarded me the *Watermelon Award*...
well, a little while ago now....
I'm ever grateful but unfortunately not very good at playing along with tags. Instead of sharing six things that make me happy I have randomly shared some of my Flickr favourites above to please the eyes and hopefully feed the soul...making you happy too....
and as a big Thank You ladies... your thoughtfulness touches the heart.

I like to think they hold a little bit of the Summer within their chubby golden bodies.
But loving cumquat marmalade as I do my small tree now stands quite bare.
I have been eyeing these off patiently through the autumn and now a more than satisfying bundle has gratefully and excitedly been harvested...
and after some slicing, soaking, boiling and setting.....
