Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,
Whether summer clothe the general earth
With greeness, or the redbreast sit and sing
Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch
Of mossy apple-tree, while the nigh thatch
Smokes in the sun-thaw; whether the eave-drops fall
Heard only in the trances of the blast,
Or if the secret ministry of frost
Shall hang them up in silent icicles,
Quietly shining to the quiet Moon.

A Birthday Girl



On Sunday it was my grand-daughter Kaitlyn's 1st birthday and there was a small family party at her other gran and grandad's house to celebrate. All her aunts and uncles and her cousin Gabriel were there.


The wrapping paper and labels proved far more interesting than the contents:)


Kaitlyn's little friend Eden also came to the party, they found Granny B's vegetable rack more exciting than anything else that was on offer.


The first photo we have of the two cousins together, Kaitlyn on Aunty Jules' lap and Gabriel with Granny.

Rowan,
New birthadys and spring are two things that rekindle our appreciation of life. The love of wrapping paper over content seems to be universal. My kids had fun with cardboard boxes as much as anything.
Spring and her flowers finally showed up this past weekend.

Belated Happy birthday to Kaitlyn..!
Wrapping paper is always more fun than the gifts inside, at least for the first birthay. It is lovely to see a photo of the two cousins together.

I always enjoy your posts so much. They're like a walk in the woods or a cuppa while looking out the garden window.
