i need some quiet time

these pictures make me feel very calm, and i could use more of that right now. this past week i was working at the northwest flower and garden show, selling books. it got me all fired up on putting in a garden in our new house. i miss our old house for it's almost farm-like plot of land, but i am excited this year by the prospect of edibles in containers!

at the moment, though, all i really want is a good night's sleep, a day off of work, a long slow walk with a few cameras and for this nagging sore throat to go away. maybe some hot tea and a bit of time to read my book, as well.

i'm trying to find a good local printer for my note cards. seattleites, know of any stationary printers?

*oh, and i know i am a bit behind on my cafe series, i hope to have a new cafe post this week.


  1. me too, some quiet time would be nice. love these photos anna!

  2. these are beautiful.
    i hope you will have soon some private quiet time.
    I am longing for this myself too but I know it will not happen before august.

  3. The last photo is the best - such explosions of each frond (pampas grass?) framed by the mist, the background trees and the brilliant green stems!
    I hope your throat recovers soon.

  4. oh yes some quiet time now would be great... I'm in the same case, my head need some rest...
