Stills












1 The last of the Flannel Flowers in Tess's backyard.
2 Tess (my lil sis).
3 Sick Oscar, drinking thyme steeped in warm water with honey.
4 Thyme flowers.
5 Radish tails. Crunchy salad: radish, snow peas, apple, mint, celery.
6 Nora, post swimming lesson, waiting for the bath to fill.
7 Cactus flower at dusk. They only open when night falls.
8 Oscar feeling better, being sprayed by the hose and snuggling up to his towel.

Linking up with the glittery Em.

    1. A long time ago, Nikki at The Wholefood Mama mentioned that thyme has antibacterial properties. Now I always add it to chicken soup and drink it as a tea when I feel a cold coming on.

    1. Lol. She certainly has a cheeky twinkle.

      We're yet to discover how cheeky Nora is, she doesn't crawl. It is hard to get up to too much mischief when you're stationary.

  4. So is steeping in warm water rather than hot better with herbs-- and have you ever noticed teeth staining with herbals-- I use them too and have recently been wondering...I've never tried thyme, what do you use it for? Such a lovely glimpse for someone just entering a snow-filled winter! I love the lighting in Nora's red couch pictures, adds such a glorious cheeriness!

    1. Sorry Heidi, I'm totally misleading above. I did steep it in a little hot water, then cooled it right down so Osc would drink it (and added a large teaspoon of honey). I heard thyme has antibacterial properties and is good for colds. I'm not sure if it works, but it gives me a little peace of mind.

    1. The photo does not do flannel flowers justice. They are soft and velvety with delicate green tips to their petals. One of my favourite flowers.

    1. I think about my watercolours daily. Sigh. I think about your watercolour too (the one I have not painted for you) and our one day art swap. I've already mentally decided where my artwork from you will go!

      We are obviously settling into our house and Nora is already 9 months I really should organise myself and set aside time. I should probably step away from the computer! What an addictive, seductive place this internet can be.
