Summer has ran hot and cold, a strange mix but oddly appropriate as a match for my emotions and mood.
After Christmas the urge to tidy away the tree, decorations and change the nature table was strong and quick. So we did.
A general clean up around our home and garden followed, and now I feel much more at ease. It is funny how things can suddenly overwhelm. Tidying away, throwing out and cleaning are strangely therapeutic. I guess it is about gaining control again, but also less is more.
Our Summer nature table then slowly took shape.
First a summery fairy door, gnome and vase full of succulents. Then over the weeks to come other summery items have been added ~ a postcard full of sunlight, a butterfly, fairy and bee. And some shells collected from our days at the beach after Christmas.
Summer held in reverence and celebration of this time of the year.
