Catching up ...

Oh how time flies....!  Sorry for my absence, again...
Things have been moving along as usual, I love my new community and continue to embrace everything it has to offer. It's been 12 months now since the move. Wow! 
We have our eyes on a small property just out of town so if all goes to plan, come Spring, Gooseberry Jams pages will once again be splashed with chickens, sheep, fruit trees, country inspired recipes and cute kids enjoying some space to roam.
  Perhaps then, my scatter brain may be clear again 
and I can schedule some time to reunite with the blogging community.

Until then you may see me, you may not..
I leave you for now with a few images I have captured in the past couple of months..

Hope your keeping warm and well   xo

  5. It's great to see you back! And I hope the property you are looking at works out. It's funny how life gets in the way of doing things sometimes, but blogging is one of those things you can just come back to when you are ready.

    My challenge at the moment is getting brave enough to prune my fruit trees. Never done it before, so am worried I will stuff it up. But hopefully one of the local nurseries can give me some tips.

    Love your collage photos!

    1. Don't talk to me about pruning, I just pruned my first rose bush!!! Apparently you can't over prune a rose bush, I hope that is true!!! Good idea to get some tips first! :)

      Hope life is treating you well, looks like your enjoying that lovely country air!

  8. Beautiful photos, full of colour. I'm pleased you're settling in, I I think it takes a year to find your feet and get over the shock of transplanting.
