happy equinox !


Well it’s me again (posted yesterday !) ! Just wanted to pop to wish you all a happy equinox, whether spring or autumn, according to where you’re reading me from !

This flower on top is a Scabiosa columbaria Butterfly Blue. Bought it recently with buds, and it’s now blooming ! I’m waiting a little bit longer before transplanting it to the flowerbed. I bought more flowers & plants, and can’t wait to show them to you once they’ll be in their final place.

It hasn’t rained in a couple of months, which is kind of awful because it’s been super windy as well (as hell, actually), therefore everything is so desperately dry … If you only knew how strong I wish it’d rain ! Sigh. It doesn’t presage a wet summer.

Anyway, so are weather cycles. Wishing you all a very happy day !


is it May or February ?


On this last day of February, I’m wondering what month we actually are : May or February ? It’s been very warm for the season, and I know that some of you in the UK or the Netherlands (or even anywhere in France, coucou je sais que vous êtes là !) have been experiencing unseasonal warm temps.

mini daffodils bought last year, that grew back this year !

Good thing for the laundry, and the plants suddenly think we’re at the end of spring, but it is not reasonable to think it’s going to last ! And I wouldn’t want it to last ! I’m in short sleeve teeshirt & flip flops … I actually have put my wooy slippers for a couple of months only. Then back to the flip flops … oh well.

In the meantime, I’m enjoying my blooming flowers & plants. I recently bought some new, that I will be sharing soon.


I hope everything is fine in your life & in your corner of the world. I hope you’re having a nice so far.


winter school break is here


Winter school break is here but it’s really hard to know because it was actually 23°C (73,5°F) his afternoon … really unseasonable, even for the south of France.

Therefore laundry was done with a happy heart (knowing it would dry in no time), and daisy picking was a lovely thing to do today. At least my little flowers are local (they grow in our lawn !!), without chemical (we don’t use any), and they will brighten our living room & bathroom (where I put them) for a handful of days ! Besides, there are lots left in the garden !


So our youngest got his upper braces on (lower ones on May 15th), and well, poor thing, it takes some time to get used to them. I feel for him, even though I know it’s for his own good & future wellness.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend ahead ! Thank you for your visit !
