Keep Dreaming...

I wrote this so many years ago now.  My lavender plugs grew, were blissful but now are getting straggly and need replaced... And finally the dream
I planted that day is close to completion with the little blue shed going up this weekend.  Small steps, inching forward.  If you keep dreaming who knows what possibilities will blossom into reality? 

Old post.

I wander round and round, a garden full of bee song and lavender scents.  
There are herbs, edible flowers and the possibility of beehives.
I dream of a few pots of honey, of lavender soap and rosemary cake, of thyme syrup to ease a sore throat... A rain washed, blue shed.  An imagined double camping stove, with a singing blue enamel kettle.  

Friends know the tin the cake is in.
I am taking the first steps to this dream today, planting the seed... growing, nuturing the possibility of a dream life.
What are you dreaming of?

I'm hormonal Mrs B and what I would give for a huge box of Hotel Chocolat chocs...it's week 2 of the hols and is not a good time to want to 'bludgeon people in the head'.

I'm dreaming of peace and quiet and praline....xx

I was sat in the Jaquzzi today (!) thinking how wonderful my life is right now. But if i could dream to add to it?.... a HotTub in my garden, a new shed, a greenhouse and an outside dining suite! x

Your dreams will come true Mrs B.
I had a very similar dream 3 years ago and this summer it came true....... The snail in your last photo is my worst nightmare, you should see what they have done to my lettuce patch!

Mrs B said...

P&C....I know I know! I hurl them over the gate!! When they devour the basil and then smell of it, all infused, I am incensed! MrB laughs his head of at the swearing that occurs bright and early in the morning garden!!

I am dreaming of days drawing, sploshing paint around and then meeting up with new friends for coffee & cake.

We chuck our snails and always chortle British Snailways. Everytime. One got painted green when we did the fence. We throw him, he comes back etc..

I am always dreaming! Today, now that I have finished my Angelica flower cardigan for baby Angélique (yummy colour) I am relishing the 'Now what shall I make next?' dream.

ps Have you ever made lavender shortbread? Yum, double yum.
