Autumn in Summer

I love how this flowering cherry tree has its autumn colouring in spring/summer.
All the new leaves are first a beautiful coppery colour and finally turn dark green. It just stands out amongst all the other trees and shrubs in the garden with their new shades of green leaves.


Both hubby and I love clocks and the older the better. We have quite a collection, the oldest is a cuckoo clock bought on our first anniversary. The poor thing really battles sometimes to sing to twelve and has to be helped along. One gets so use to the different chimes, but my favourite are the Westminster chimes. As well as clocks we have a collection of watches including fob watches. I love the intricate patterns on many of these. I will have to show you a few one day but for now here is a lovely metal clock.

Decadent Delights

If you ever travel through the Natal midlands, you have to stop at the Belgium Chocolate and coffee shoppe. What delightful treats and their chocolate cake served with a berry compote is pure decadence. Just looking at the picture gets my taste buds drooling again.

A Meandering Day

Today was a meandering day. My daughter arrived last wednesday for my opening of Marcella~Mia and today we took time off to spend meandering through the midlands, one of our favourite pastimes. It was a cool day but bright with the signs of spring. New green leaves and flowers were bursting out everywhere, it really was most picturesque.
Here are some pictures for you to enjoy.

A cute friend we met along the way.
Old wagons with many stories to tell in their final resting place under some trees.

The angels took flight!

It was a day to remember with the opening of my shop, Marcella~Mia. Customers streamed in from 7am and many items sold out, including these beautiful angels.
Thank you to all those who could attend and those who sent well wishes and flowers.
