If only we could live as lightly as animals. Taking what we need and nothing more. They live in sync with nature, can teach us so much and, as pets, bring a world of love and laughter to our lives. Their playful innocence and unconditional love can ground us in todays crazy, uncertain times. This … More Life Lessons from Animals
A tribute to the rambunctious little lamb that wormed her way into our garden and into my heart. … More Remembering Lamby
I have a confession to make. I’m not a very good mum. In fact I’m neglectful, thoughtless and sometimes I wonder how I could possibly deserve the awesomeness in my life. How else can I explain leaving Harry in the car overnight, for thirteen hours?

Just when I thought I’d finished posting about Lamby, along comes this prompt: Green.
Who would have thought raising such a little lamb would have such a big impact. She came into our life at barely two weeks of age, after being abandoned by her mother. I blogged about her here when she arrived.
Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? Lamby has eaten (almost) everything. She’s sucked the sage, devoured the mint, deflowered the lemon tree and stripped my yard barren. Not only has she devoured the herbs (minus the rosemary) she’s mowed better than any grass cuter ever could and become a master … More A wish to Grow and Bloom
