A day of gifts

After sitting on the beach, I felt inspired to pick up my coloured pencils and draw. It's been a full day, in which I received a surprise gift from my friend Anne, sent all the way from England.
Two years ago I admired her turquoise jacket and now, after much hunting, she's found one for me in Marks and Spencer's. She wrapped it in beautiful paper and sent it off with a note to say 'a surprise is always nice to have.' How fortunate I feel, to have such a good friend, and to be soaking up the late autumn sun in a beautiful place.

What a wonderfully colorful drawing you did, Juliet. It would make a perfect pin to go on your jacket. There is something so special receiving a gift in the mail from a friend, isn't there? It looks like a perfect jacket - and a very good friend.

Thank you for the comment on my blog, Bees in the Antipodes Juliet, I find smells like lemon verbena bring back so many memories, I am instantly transported back to childhood days, special people with glimpses of journeys traveled. . .
good friends are such a blessing . .

How wonderful to have inspired that beautiful picture of a colourful world - it has so many different shades of glorious subtle colour. I am only just catching up and found this wonderful entry which everyone has enjoyed. It makes me feel very mellow and happy.
