Gathering rosebuds.....



We get a very limited amount of sunlight through our windows because of the woods, but in the winter, when the trees are bare of their leaves, the sunlight streams in...

Much like this morning....it cast shadows over the lower terrace, and the iron garden set filtered its rays to create a lace pattern on the snow...

I had a million things I could be doing, but decided to stop and savour the moment...
One of those...stop and smell the roses kind of moment....




One of the things that will be a top priority in the renovation will be larger windows, so that we can experience more sunlight indoors and views of the garden and the surrounding woods will be maximized...




The sunlight filtering through the milk glass gave it a translucent quality...










Even the stopper on my olive oil bottle adopted an alabaster look....




Every little detail and relief was at an advantage...






Everything looks so much prettier with the sun shining on it...






Even this vintage bark cloth slipper chair in the kitchen looked softer....






It gave a gossamer quality to the organdy curtains in this window....
Sunlight in the winter is so different, I think it is the reflection from the snow that adds to its
particular beauty this time of year....






This whimsical vintage funnel was painted some time ago, but it's message is timeless...




....Gather ye rosebuds....

On a day like today, with the sun shining through the windows.....
moments to savour and record for another time....




Wishing everyone a most Happy Valentine's Day.....
