A week takes flight from the tips of my fingers...

Betwixt & between, scurrying for that last breath, I gulped this morning awaking to realize that the my grasp on the last week had somehow gone loose & whoosh...it had slipped from my fingers. I had so many posts planned & yet somewhere between Tuesday & breathless I let it all disappear.

I daydreamed a bit too much, missing my gardens, revisiting photos I use to find inspiration, now instead they comfort me in the blazing white heat of Arizona. I yearned for the largest popsicle ever..to lay upon & an escape hatch through my wardrobe to tranquility.

So my apologies, dear friends. I shall sleep strongly tonight & blog again this week with fever pitch on cherries, my love of red & blue everywhere, a white delight tea time event & keeping cool...so many steps to the top of feeling accomplished.
Have you ever lost an entire to with no idea where it went????

oh I loved this stroll through the gardens...I feel your pain with the heat, moving from England to Aus I have so missing the delights of gardening where water is not and issue and the heat does not scorch ones newly planted garden!

Lovely lovely gardens and SO appreciated by someone who lives in apartment. I'm loving your recent splurge of green gardens, they are keeping me happy. We missed you last week, and actually I missed most of last week also. Have a great week and looking forward to some more lovely posts from Ms Delightful and Delovely! Julie

How time does fly! Where does it go? The images you have selected just send me out into the garden--maybe I can find the time there sitting on one of those fabulous benches! Looking forward to your upcoming posts!

Those gardens are so romantic. It looks like they come from a fantastic or magic place, the kind of place that some history talk about.
I love the first pic. I coul read my book over there for all day long!

What tranquil images. Just to make you feel better, I'm from England and we are having temperatures of 32C/90F at the moment, so a little bit of Arizona in London. I have been to Arizona in August where the temperaature was 125F so I know what it must be like. Many thanks for following my 'lil ole blog'. Much appreciated. XX
