Winter light...

"January opens
The box of the year
And brings out days
That are bright and clear
And brings out days
That are cold and grey
And shouts, "Come see
What I brought today!"
- Leland B. Jacobs, January

There's something in the air today...You can find me in my garden..

OH DEAREST ONE! THIS PHOTO IS JUST WONDERFUL!!!! And are you in your garden today, anticipating spring? Is it warmer? HOW LOVELY!!!! Oh dearest, I just got an email again from your old email address and it confused me since you had said you were closing up that address. However, it confused me because it was so personable!!!!! I understood you to not be using that address anymore, yet it came from your old address!!!! It said that you were sending your first message to me.....is that you? Nita

Hallo Dutchess,
Wat een leuk gedichtje, het is inderdaad zo - januari brengt tot nu toe heel veel licht, er was maar een grijze dag deze week. Ik heb om twaalf uur even op een opgevouwen badlaken in de zon gezeten ... Heerlijk! Je knapt er zo van op, het geeft meteen zoveel energie.
Nog even en we kopen weer viooltjes om in de potten te zetten.
Fijne dag!

I just discovered your blog & loved it. I'm an interior designer from Melbourne, Australia & I found it very inspiring. Blogging is all new to me but I have just set up my own blog
You may like to check it out because I had so much fun doing it. It's got a bit of everything fashion, interiors, food, travel spots - hopefully you will find something in there that interests you. Please stop by if you have a spare minute.
Thanks for providing me with such great entertainment!
