By nature, nature

is elegant


hauntingly beautiful

and breathtaking

providing us with a bridge upon which we cross the waters of inspiration

from nature's hues

and nesting instincts

in order to make our homes a place of repose

and personal royal treatment.

As you slip into your comfortable slippers

and putter around your home, open the windows of reflection and savor the colors and the scents of the season

as I welcome you to step through my doorway into MY home in the next several weeks.

In the meantime, sit with me in the niche of the Yew at Much Marcle

and dream of what marvelous things await us on the other side of the door at the Yew at St. Edwards;

perhaps it will be a magical soirée in an enchanted garden of wisteria that will inspire us once again to create an atmosphere all our own.

Merci mille fois for coming to participate in our birthday party; I know that we ALL enjoyed our special celebrations and you were a huge part of making this a memorable birthday for us all!

Bisous à tous!
