Dreaming green...

Dear readers,
I hope the new year has started well for you.
Despite wishes for craft and creativity, some nasty germs are still holding me hostage,
 and with bed rest ordered by the doctor, 
I have instead dug out some photos from last summer...

There, some visual fuel to keep our winter-chilled souls believing that there will be a warm and green season again, with flower-picking, sheep-spotting and ancient oak-admiring on the agenda...

So, to finish off with a VERY random photo of some cute meerkats (at a mini zoo nearby), 
I shall try to find a similar log and sit down and wait for spring to happen!
 Wishing you a lovely week!


  1. oh, poor you, Helena, still feeling ill. Hope you feel better soon. X

  2. Dear Helena I hope you will be up and about before too long without those nasty germs. XXX

  3. Ciao Helena.I love your blog. January is a month long and very particolar ... Thanks for the pictures full of green and sun. I wish you a Happy New Year and fast healing. Hugs Anna

  4. Oh, how well I know how you are feeling..... the same here and no sign of getting better :( But it has to get better some day, simply has to, hasn't it?? And then we will shock the world hahaha:)
    All the best from Moorland Home:)

  5. Get well soon, Helena!

  6. It's nice to see green when the world around is all white :)

  7. Love your pictures!!..here we have lots of snow......please let it be spring soon !!...love from me...xxx...

  8. Men kjære deg...., så får du følge legens råd og bli " frisk som en fisk"!!! Masse klemmer

  9. Så härligt att få drömma lite grönt här hos dej! Precis vad jag behöver just idag när man nästan blir bländad av all vit snö som fallit det senaste dygnet! solen vägrar tyvärr visa sej, den har visst övergivit min lilla del av landet helt! Den är verkligen sparsam på besöken vill jag lova!

    Så söta markattor (?)!

    Jag fortsätter att drömma grönt med dina ljuvliga växter på näthinnan!

  10. Hihi vilket gulligt gäng! Ungefär som jag ser ut runt ögonen när jag sovit för lite, fniss ;) Men vad är det för en illvillig bacill som invaderat dig? Bäst du gör som doktorn ordinerar och vilar ordentligt, så du är pigg o kry tills du ska möta våren. Längtar jag också. Är ganska trött på snön nu även om den är fin.

    Många kramar och krya-hälsningar till dig!

  11. Hi there poor girl
    Last weekend I read that in Helligans Lost Garden the first Daffodil has started to bloom... so better times will come soon :o).
    Get well and drink a lot of tea :o).
    Kind regards

  12. My favourite picture is the tree. it looks perfectly balanced. Love it!

    Oh and the sheep. Ah they are all great, what am I talking about!!!

  13. Hello Helena,

    Being a Swenglish (I am actually only half Swedish but the traditions are strong!) household too, I have so enjoyed your blog for some time now! It has inspired me to start my own, so thank you.

    I hope you feel better soon.


  14. Du gör säkert klokt i att följa doktorns råd så att bacillerna ger sig av. Härligt med dina gröna bilder. Här är det mest vitt och kallt och längtan efter lite värme och grönska börjar göra sig påmind nu.
    Krya på dig!
    Kram Maria

  15. I hope you will get better soon, being sick sucks:)

  16. I also have Spring fever....your images of green are beautiful! Since I live in the South it won't be too much longer. Your blog is lovely and I hope you feel better soon...:)

  17. Your pictures are so beautiful, I wish I had a gift like you have. Best wishes from tile adhesive

  18. Ah, yes, summer. I remember such a thing quite well...
