Lady Snow.........

 Lady Snow snuggling in amongst the jasmine for a mid morning siesta.
 Aslan watching his girls and taking a moment for himself.
And Cheeky Chook exploring and looking for tasty treats hidden in the garden...

It Seems.........

 It seems an age since I last took myself to the coast.
The minute I left the car and took my first breath of the crisp sea air I felt myself instantly relax, wondering why I had not come to the coast for such a long time.
There is something very intoxicating being by the ocean, the sound of the water as it gentle lapped against the rocks, it lulled me into surrendering to the moment, just watching and listening to the sounds of the natural world.
Choosing a spot free of people made the visit perfect.
Just me and the elements.........

The Things......

 The things one finds in the bush...........


Sitting By The River...........



 Sitting by the river and waiting to see what catches my eye, a family of corellas appeared and made me laugh out loud with their playful antics.
From hanging upside down to sharing a kiss they played and chatted the afternoon away.
The energy of these birds is quiet infectious and one cannot help but smile.
 
 
 
On a neighbouring tree I spotted a lone hawk who was also watching the family with a bit of a gleam in his eye, I feel his intent was a little different to mine.
Thankfully he choose to relax in the afternoon sun.
Simple pleasures bring the greatest joy........

The Magnificence.....

 The magnificence of nature needs no words simply an open heart..... 







And there she stood.........


 
And there she stood wondering what will this day bring.
The gentle waters of the river still and serene.
The bush land eerily quiet.
 
It has been said that we never get more than we can handle, and as she stands here watching the world just being she realises this to be true.
 
She has emerged from a life long journey of finding her roots, she has found the family she was taken from, and although it was not as she dreamed it would be, peace has finally come to her.
 
She realises that she is who she is because of the story she has lived and that it is up to her to honour the heartbreak and tears that have paved her way thus far.
She is now reinventing herself and getting ready to step out into the world free of the past, for she knows that the past can only haunt you only if you allow it to.
 
The wind picks up bringing with it the song of a lone magpie, the singing  filling her heart.
She watches as slowly around her the bush land comes to life, and the moment is over..........

A Day In The Life................

 A day in the life at the Magic Cottage.
Miss Freckles and Lady Snow enjoying their favourite tree, Mr and Mrs Duck chilling out because they feel so safe is just delightful. Moondancer and Princess Sparkles meandering around, and Spirit cat relaxing with his mummy.
The biggest gift of all however, was sitting in the garden and realising
 that two years ago there was no garden here what so ever, and now sitting in this beautiful sanctuary I have created I acknowledged how truly blessed I am, my dream is becoming a reality.
Beautiful blooms, chicken folk, Spirit cat and birdsong, what more could a girl ask for......................
