My ship came from China...

...With a cargo of tea,
All laden with presents
For you and for me...

My sister always brings good things.

The latest Sally Vickers, to finish reading and leave for me,



(the pink pig on a stick on the shelf behind came in an ice-cream sundae eaten on a terrace in Erquy.  My ice-cream had a small but fully functioning paper fan in it, just imagine my bliss...) 



and three lacquered Burmese bowls, light and glossy as feathers.


But the real treasures she brings are not to be weighed and measured in Ryanair's hand luggage allowance.

We walked through the woods and by the streams to the Seven Saints chapel,




and saw damsels, not in distress.



She doesn't even make much washing.

And she'll be back in a week bringing an even better consignment in the shape of my eldest brother all the way from Oz.

Further good news on the summer visitors front, this crew are coming again in August, for a bit longer this time.  I smiled and smiled.  It matters a lot at the moment.  It all goes by so fast.

Blogging light, seems to be the order of things just now.  I take the pics and want to share them, but don't seem to have much to say for myself.  Not to worry.

It's always good to see you though when you do pop up in my reader.

I liked this post a lot.

One day maybe I'll come to visit . . .
(don't worry I have no idea of your address!!!)

Enjoy life - that's what it's there for.

Lightly writing, light filled images, a lightening of hearts.

No. Not to worry. They tell a good story, a pleasing story. Keep well.

Such a damselfly! I saw the first dragonfly of the season yesterday. With the fireflies and frogs singing, summer is nigh. My thoughts turn to taking photos and ... ice cream!

How lovely to have a lovely sister. I know you lost another, though. Joy and sorrow.

Nimble said...

Wow - that damselfly! Good that you have visitors to enjoy and to look forward to.

I'm glad you are gathering your family around you this summer.

Your pictures just get more beautiful and clear all the time.
