There is an emanation from the heart

which cannot be described,

but is immediately felt and puts

the stranger at his ease.

~Washington Irving


Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough...

.........and more.

It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast,

a house into a home,

a stranger into a friend.

~Melody Beattie


Don't be satisfied with stories,

how things have gone with others.

Unfold your own myth.
~Rumi


May my life be like a great

hospitable tree, and may

weary wanderers find in

me a rest.

~John Henry Jowett

Hidcote Gardens NT, near Chipping Campden, is open on 
weekends now ~ which means spring is coming very close!

Hidcote Gardens last April, a dizzying,
glorious mass of tulips and daffodils.
Our first visit to Hidcote last year was in March,
when the magnificent magnolia was in bloom.

Hidcote opens 7 days a week on March 7th.
More on Hidcote Gardens here.
