Before we moved to France we sorted through a lot of items, some that would fit well in the French property and much that would not. Sometimes difficult decisions were made about what to keep and what to dispose of. One of which was the old wrought iron candelabra, I thought no, it should be left behind, Paul wanted to take it for personal reasons. Yes it was and I am so glad that we did.
It was not until I started to renovate the candelabra that I began to remember where it came from so many years ago. It was a gift from my father in law who died seventeen years ago. So while I worked fond memories of him came flooding back. Recalling our first meeting when he welcomed me as ‘Mortisha, from the Adams family. Well I was dressed in a long black dress with hair flowing past my waist and wearing a large black floppy hat. In my defence I was only seventeen at the time and it was in the late 1960’s.
Fond memories of a man who is still missed today.
I think that he would have loved sitting on the veranda by candle light sipping a drink or two. Cheers Dad.
Now that the warmer days are here, flowers are starting to develop and open in our courtyard.
Magnificent is the apple blossom on our new tree which looks and smells gorgeous.
I just had to take pictures of our babies relaxing in the spring warmth.

Angel, or as she has affectionately come to be know Groucho Marks, she was not in a good mood that day.
