Spring is here

Spring has definitely hit us now – days of gorgeous sunshine, blue skies, blossom and bees. It’s so restful just sitting on the verandah with a cup of tea for a few minutes in the morning and listening to the birds busily flitting around and feeding babies. Only a few minutes unfortunately because this is a time of busy-ness for humans as well! The lawn grows so fast it needs cutting every week and the weeds are just as excited as the rising bulbs are to emerge and reach for the sun. It’s a great grounding experience, sitting and weeding, running my hands through the dirt to get as many of the bits of kikuyu out of the garden bed before planting petunias. I feel truly blessed that I’m able to do that and enjoy getting dirty 🙂

If there wasn’t such an urgency in the back of my mind I could just do a little bit now and then when I can fit it in….but not only does the Spring weather insist on it being done now, so too does the looming date of my son’s wedding. Now less than a mere 3 weeks from taking place in my garden! I’m so excited and thrilled that they’re getting married here….but my plans of a few months back are starting to get cut back to reality. I’ve decided I like weeds in my lawn, they make it more interesting and more attractive for birds, and mulch can cover anything! My mantra for the past week has been ‘I can do ANYTHING, but I can’t do EVERYTHING’. It will be gorgeous and special regardless and I’m determined to be stress-free about it all and enjoy the whole process. So, as much as I love having visitors to my B&B and cottage, I have blocked out the next few weeks so I can concentrate on other matters!

I’m also excited to now be a Wellness Consultant with doTERRA . This is a wonderful range of Certified Therapeutic Grade Essential oils that amaze me with their potency and effects. If you’d like me to share more information on them then just ask! Or click here.
