we said we would not exchange valentines this year. oh but i should have known better. i rode my bike to summerland, the next town over, this morning. stopping in the market and seeing the cards, pink and red and with hearts and flowers, romance! too hard to resist. next thing i knew a card and chocolate, i mean, chocolove (a love poem is written inside the wrapper!) jumped in my basket (an adventure magazine too) came home with me. along the way i found flowering eucalyptus to also gift my love. he said 'oh no! i thought we said...' and then i received a tender valentine kiss. ah love.
i brought my vintage film camera, and small compact to take these photos while riding my bike, and wouldn't you know, i saw the hawk! neither camera was capable of taking the beautiful raptors picture so you will have to take my word for it.
p.s. the winner of the luna grey wool giveaway (thank you random number generator!) is
frances of city views, country dreams. congratulations frances!
