It wasn't so long ago when these 100 trees were little saplings which arrived in bundles of twentyfive
By the lake
The old Chinese Elm, a place for Summer picnics
New Summit Ash, for clothelines to stretch between
We designed our house to fit within the space of 2 old trees, not the other way around
Three old trees stood here. One was hit by lightning, the other was blown over by the wind and the last tree died of a broken heart. In their honor we planted three new trees. All photos taken with a Kodak Easy Share DX7590
Peacock Pavilions, a boutique guesthouse, a peaceful oasis, just outside of Marrakech

Take time to have a fabulous lunch at the "Hotel Restaurant French" You will find it at one of the corners of the Djemaa el Fna.
On the way to the High Atlas Mountains, on the outskirts of a small village, a market day was in full swing.
Put on your glad rags and have lunch at the La Mamounia
After a 3 year renovation, the legendary Hotel La Mamounia has reopened. It was completely redesigned by Jaques Garcia. We stayed at the Mamounia 25 years ago. I liked it better then. It had more charm. So much marble this time and so dark.
I kept falling off and on to the thick carpets. I did like the six handsome young men, dressed in all white flowing robes, opening doors for me every time I approached.
Here I share with you my obsession with Italian Renaissance Ceramics. I decided that painting them would not be so difficult. So I set about learning. My blog is about living the simple country life, tales from our travels and, of course, my hand painted ceramics.
