there is new life here on the farm, it happened a few days ago, the night before a good friend Paul stopped by for the night. k and i walked the fields with him as we reminisced about our past it was nice to share this space with him. the next morning i came down the stairs and both k and paul had gone but what i found was a little duckling, noisette the mother duck had been sitting all summer and finally there was life- the timing was so poignant to me as k and i closed some chapters from the past there was a new beginning. i was also very happy for the mother, she was so proud and tender a feeling i long for in the deepest part of my heart.
I also wanted to share the photographs above, they were taken last year in dordogne at les jardins
marqueyssac . I remember the afternoon well, the sun was lovely and warm i walked behind aran and stephanie barely hearing what they were saying but the gentle sounds that played made the walk down the paths even more special, in fact if i was going to share the whole story i would tell how we got locked in and how we climbed iron gates and crawled through bushes.
i hope you forgive me for sharing both side's of the coin in this post.
also i have named the little duckling henrietta that is if she is a she, henri either way in memory of my sweet friend stacy's companion.
* ps. the third photograph of just the garden path is one of my favorites ever, i don't edit my photographs ever but wonder if i should remove the the right corner, i just love all the layers of green, texture and warm light.
