Lovely post as always, Colette and such beautiful photos. They remind me to be inspired, to think outside the box and to plant 🙂
Love your beautiful blog and your philosophies! You continue to inspire! And I’m off to put a tea pot in the garden! 🙂 x
And so it grows…we are all connected! Blessings X
HELP!!!!! Old, sick with one foot in the grave but still want to leave at least a SMALL mark upon the earth for helping with ecology! Everything is becoming too high tech for me! My desk top and only computer which also runs my only phone have serious issues all day. Can’t even call for much help when internet goes down because phone goes down with it! The entire world seems to be smarted and selfied up, and to my way of thinking this is AGAINST nature in many ways. But on the other hand is it even possible to live simply with the earth anymore!?? Collett, I know you must use computers to even do this blog, but other than the initial heavy duty land start ups are you able to basically maintain the cottage and yourself using a MINIMUM of all the new high tech crap?
I live without most of the modern technology as I do not have the money to buy it, or replace anything that goes down…can’t get simpler than that!
