Happy Sunday one and all!
I recently spent a week on Orcas Island immersed in natural beauty. Orcas is one of the San Juan Islands in the state of Washington. Are you familiar with it? It was heaven on earth or so it seemed to me. Stunning hydrangea bushes in deep blues and red violet clamored up cottage walls, wild sweet peas, shasta daisies which I love, the lavendar grosso were grand in number and in size and I haven't seen so many stands of hollyhocks ever.
Surrounded by the lush green forest, cool blue Cascade lake, the variety of wildlife and masses upon masses of vibrant joyful flowers everywhere the hum of 'life force' was easily heard.
Wishing you a happy and inspiring week ahead!
