I just love how green and colourful nature is at the moment.
Here are a few snapshots from my blossoming flowerbeds.
Let's enjoy this wonderful time and all the beauty
 around us.

Crabapple


I planted a small crabapple last autumn. After being so taken by our gorgeous
 cherry blossoms every spring, I started looking for another, 
similar tree to plant in another part of our garden.

So happy I chose this one! Wow! 
There are tons of  amazing flowers in a lovely, 
slightly darker pink shade. Now I just can't wait for it to grow bigger.

Such a wonderful time outside right now. 
There is life everywhere and the surrounding nature is full of colours. 
Love it!

Have a great weekend!

Vili 3 years


Yet another example of how time flies. Can't believe this little guy turns 3 years old today. 
Feels like these pictures were taken just a little while ago. 

Congratulations sweet little Vili! 
You travelled a long way to become one of our family members. 
What a joy it has been!

Hello Coco!


Let me introduce you to our newest family member, Adjoo's A Real Gold Mine "Coco".
She's an Australian Shepherd just as our previous girls have been,
and I simply can't believe how adorable she is! 

 Coco absolutely adores food, and hangs out by her bowl quite often.
She may look innocent and all, but she's quite the little rugrat!  :)

Welcome to our gang sweet little Coco!

Cherry Blossom 2019




The cherry blossoms in our garden have been exceptionally beautiful this year.
Thousands of pink flowers have bloomed for nearly two weeks now, and I think that's
 record-breaking for the 13 years since I planted the tree. Wow!
This tree never seizes to amaze me!

Summer Dreams


Oh how I dream of warm days filled with the bright colours and sweet scents of summer. 

Soon...very soon, I tell myself. 

The bright sunshine and blue skies just make it all seem to close. 
Like if I just reach out my hand, I'm sure I can touch it. Feel it.

Feel the warm summer breeze. Ah! 

As I grow older, spring really feels like such a blessing every time it finally comes around.

 The gift of new life.

Man's Best Friend


Ever since Honey passed, I've really missed both her and Ronja (can't believe it's been almost three years since her passing) so much. Guess I've also come to the realization that there was something so special about those two girls. These girls simply seemed to have the ability to see straight into my very soul. They could read me and my feelings as an open book. There was such depth and wisdom in the eyes of both Ronja and Honey. They were my best friends, and soulmates in their own, distinct way. A connection of souls - that is the best way I can describe it. 

Miss you both, mommy's girls. 

Sending you all my love,

Melissa
