Thank you both! We are still in the process of looking around here...I do wish I could live in a cooler climate though! I really want to see a good snow!


Welcome back Selia, how lovely to see a post form you. You have been missed. What a summer you have had. It is a lot of work selling and buying a home. Hang in there. Will you be moving far?? I hope you find just the perfect home xoxoxox Clarice

Very beautiful post. I have always wanted to visit the UK.


Thank you everyone! What kind words! I have been having computer problems but plan to get the France post up in a couple of days! I am trying to visit everyone but keep getting bumped off...frustrating!


So glad you are back! Thank you for acknowledging all of us who wanted to see your kind words and face again!


Lovely to have you back in blog land! What a wonderful trip:-)


I am so glad to see your blog up and flowing again. It was your blog that got me started bloging and I truely enjoy reading all about your travels. Glad to see you back.


Dearest Selia,

I am so HAPPY to see you are blogging again. I have missed you so very much!!! We all have missed you!!! Thank you for sharing more of your beautiful trip. I look forward to seeing France, too.

Oh, England is gorgeous! I would love to go there. All of those flowers are so beautiful. I wish you could have brought some home. I am glad you were able to bring home some daisies from Stone Henge to press... a sweet remembrance of a memorable place! You are so right, England is rich with history. It must have been amazing to be there and see so many beautiful and historical places. I am so glad you were able to visit with your dear friend.

The pastel artwork is simply amazing! What a gifted artist! I could not bear the thought of the rain washing it away either! I love the fountain and the flowers overflowing the window boxes. You are so gorgeous dear friend!!!

I enjoyed reading the Art of Traveling and the quote. Again, I am so happy you are blogging!!!! I can hardly wait until your next post!

Much love and blessings,


Dear Selia,

  • "...I want first of be at peace with myself. I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention, a central core to my life that will enable me to carry out these obligations and activities as well as I can. I want, in fact - to borrow from the language of the saints - to live "in grace" as much of the time as possible...By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual, which can be translated into outward harmony...I would like to achieve a state of inner spiritual grace from which I could function and give as I was meant to in the eye of God..." by Anne Morrow Lindbergh Gift from the Sea

~A Garden of Thoughts~

  • THE Lord God planted a garden In the first white days of the world, And He set there an angel warden In a garment of light enfurled. So near to the peace of Heaven, That the hawk might nest with the wren, For there in the cool of the even God walked with the first of men. And I dream that these garden-closes With their shade and their sun-flecked sod And their lilies and bowers of roses, Were laid by the hand of God. The kiss of the sun for pardon, The song of the birds for mirth,-- One is nearer God's heart in a garden Than anywhere else on earth. For He broke it for us in a garden Under the olive-trees Where the angel of strength was the warden And the soul of the world found ease. ~~ by Dorothy Frances Gurney~~
  • To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich, to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never, in a word to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common, this is to be my symphony. - William Henry Channing
  • Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. - Marcel Proust
  • There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling. ~Mirabel Osler
