It Came True!

A bit over a year ago I wrote this post, back when we lived in Sydney. Quick, go and have a look and come back. I have something to show you.


My sprawling country garden has a grand magnolia as its centrepiece...


..some lovely fruit trees that did indeed burst into flower as soon as winter let her guard down...


..and great swathes of unruly jasmine that, although they have flowered much later than in Sydney, are currently filling the air with the scent of my childhood.


And, yes, another magnolia for good measure.

  4. I LOVE that your dreams came true Greer. Now you've just made me want to leave the city for the country EVEN MORE which is troubling. Hmm. But gorgeous photos as always. Have a great week. xx

  6. SO "THE SECRET" is true! Only joking. What a lovely dream to have come true. Sometimes you need to put into words what it is that you really want and then you can make it happen.

  8. I think we gravitate towards those things we really desire in our lives...it doesn't surprise me that you have those beautiful flowers in your garden but I am delighted for you!

  11. How lovely that your dream came true while you are so young, and you seem to have settled right in to country life very quickly. For 15 years we pined for a bit of space out of town, but by the time we got here our kids had flown the nest. We love every minute of life on our 3 acres on the edge of a tiny town, and now we have grandchildren to come visit and enjoy it all with us.

  12. So beautiful, the magnolias, the dream, and the jasmine ~ which is probably the BEST smelling flower on the planet, in my humble opinion.

  15. Wow, so beautiful. There are magnolias that flower on our street - they are so beautiful and spring like. And my flatmate often picks unruly sprigs of jasmine on her walk home that fill our home with their fragrant scent - its so delicate and lovely isn't it.
