Garden moodboard and monthly mosaic - April

30 Apr 2013




Hello. Just squeezing in my garden moodboard for April before the month is over - Joining in with Karin A Photography and her collections of things from the garden each month. Its so nice to see a bit more colour appearing out there now. The spring weather is finally here and I love it!

These little photos are all from April from my Instagram. I will be happy to say hello to a new month, April wasn't a great one here really. It saw a family loss (my grandad) a breakup (mine!) and lots of illness. We are still getting over all the illness, still have funeral arrangements to be made and I'm still coming to terms with now being a single mum - but surely things can only get better in May!

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely comment. Sharing personal stuff on here isn't something I find easy and I did ponder over whether to post anything or not - but I figured that this little space is my online journal and I want it to be a record of both the good and bad. xx

  9. Gosh so many changes to get your head around all at the same time. You are starting a new chapter in your life, I'm not sure how much choice you had in this (obviously none when a loved one dies) but you will adapt and your new life will unfurl. Wishing you lots of strength and I hope you have lots of support of family and friends (that includes those on here!) take care xxx

  13. Hi Caroline, sorry to hear of all that's been happening. I hope you find some healing and creative things to do that will help. It's a long road being a single parent, but if it's how it has to be then I hope more good things come for you. All the best Heather x
