perfect weekend

this weekend, my sister took me to the garden center above
it was more than garden goods
breath taking roses and other display
they were all good treat to my eyes and soul

then we headed to a charming cafe nearby
there were hand crafted table and chairs and
two rabbits in the garden sleeping comfortably


at the cafe, i took saori weaving lesson
and made interesting scarf
it took three hours and was so satisfying
with the process and result

spent a night at my sister's house... 
took a walk this morning around her house
i love exploring stairs and hills
to see what's out there





kaki tree in the woods


more stairs...this one was bit scary




back home now
having a cup of tea

  4. So lovely sister time and your scarf is beautiful. I'm learning some lace making at the moment, but weaving is on schedule in my craft's course in February and I'm already looking forward to it.
    It's a pleasure to see photos of the plants and trees around you, because most of them are totally new to me. What are those nuts that look like acorns, but the leaf is different from an oak?

    1. it is acorn. most of acorn i see around here is not english oak tree.
      i was also wondering why our acorn look different and did search for you.
