Gum leaves picked over the back fence.....very fragrant

  1. Hi Meg, wow I really love these trees in the spring when they flower and yours sure looks beautiful. I enjoyed looking at the flowers and the candles too. Have a nice weekend.

  2. Loved the pearls, you certainly have an eye for a bargain and beauty. The seasons are certainly changing, signs of Autumn are all around over here.

  3. Meg, I adore this post. Those gum leaves and the roses are exactly like the ones in my wedding bouquet, I wore vintage pearls, and I married in countryside much like yours. So this makes me very nostalgic. Would you share this one at A Tray of Bliss this week? Love, Mimi xxx

  4. Thanks Mimi...heading over x

  5. Whenever I need a dose of pretty things I always check in with MEG!

  6. A lovely post, and that's a gorgeous, vintage necklace. Summer's almost over, here in Wales, but seeing the blossoms on those trees is making me yearn for the start of spring again, and the mist... perfect! ♥

    1. Than you...a few more days and ours trees should be fully open with blossom xx

  7. Love the pearls Meg. I love the colour of it, I don't see them often. Now I feel like going to the market to look for some treasure. Hope the weather is getting warmer on your neck of the woods

    Happy weekend to you.


  8. Your photos are stunning. I miss the four seasons as here in southern California is basically the same. I used to love the fall weather and the trees turning. And, after a harsh winter it was a blessing to see the trees bud in all their spring glory. You have a lovely blog and it's always a joy to stop by.

  9. Gorgeous pearls!!! Love the vignette you created with the Rose!

  10. To have seen these images during spring must have been exhilarating for you. Your backyard is just simply scenic, and quite easy on the eyes. The trees you have are a lovely contrast to the deep-green grass backdrop. Anyway, thank you for sharing such a lovely sight. Good day!

  11. Stunning photos! I love to collect vintage pearls too :) My Mum and I bought some years ago and now we're hooked!

  12. The girls look quite happy taking a stroll through the beautiful spring blossoms. Love the clasp on the pearls.

  13. Gorgeous pearls! We could use some of your fog right now to cool things off a bit. Thanks for sharing your pretty spring blossoms at VIParty.

  14. Meg, I've featured your beautiful pearls at Five Star Frugal this week. I hope you'll join me again this week. Love, Mimi xxx

  15. Beautiful photos! Thanks for joining Home Sweet Home!

  16. Meg, your changing season sure is lovely. Thanks for sharing at Shabbilicious Friday. Hugs ~ Kerryanne

  17. Beautiful pictures.

  18. It’s very informative and you are obviously very knowledgeable in this area. You have opened my eyes to varying views on this topic with interesting and solid content. Crystals, Pearls
