a dear Windhover...

I have had a most agreeable week!

The main treat has been a visit from a dear friend.  As she says, truly we are kindreds, and our feet did look charming together!

To show her around my home, which I have so often described here in this blog, was really wonderful.  And to see her fall in love with every little nook and corner of the place made it a delight to share.

Our short time together resulted in many impromptu piano concerts, poetry readings, passionate discussions about music, politics, food to name a few; and then drawing sessions with my children, who just adored, and wanted to keep her!

Dear Windhover,
Thank you for coming,
The light inside you was beautiful to see again in the flesh!
as was your beauty, your passion for life, and your heart.
Come again soon,
Always is a place for you here,
at Hillview.

  1. Oh Mechelle! Thank you for your kind words. It was not hard to fall in love with every nook of your house because I could feel the warmth, kindess and good humour radiating from you all! I still think I could fit a little bed in "the green room" or in Cambell's shed! I miss Hillview now - but I know in my heart it won't be long till we all meet again. Bless you!

  2. Thank you Sarah it was a lovely, special time.

    Thank you Emily, I'm so glad you really were comfortable and happy at Hillview : )


Thank you for your thoughts...
