Choosing to live simply, tending the garden, loving the homelife, incorporating creativity and following the peaceful example of two cats in our yard.
I never had any other desire so strong, and so like to covetouseness, as that one which I have had always, that I might be master at last of a small house and a large garden. - Abraham Cowley, "The Garden" (1666)

Cleaning up the garden bed I accidentally broke a branch of Rosemary. The oils it contains must have been at their peak at this time of year because they came off on my hands and had such a rich scent - very sweet. I believe Rosemary is supposed to be an uplifting scent and seems to clear your head. Alongside is a beautiful mug I picked up at the second hand store for just 2 dollars! A nice cup of herbal tea and the smell of Rosemary make a nice little break.
