Life, Color and Textures

Knitting Blog Textures

Happy July! I hope you haven’t lost me. 🙂 Amid some personal turmoil, day job and many missed deadlines, I felt like I needed a break and step away from the online presence for awhile. Though I didn’t post much in June, I was still working on several projects – there has been a lot of behind the scenes knitting going on that I am sure I’ll be able to share with you in the new knitting season.

Now I feel revived and ready to come back to weekly blogging. I thought celebrating it with the splash of color and textures from my latest trip to one of the local farms.

I was so inspired by this place that is a true hidden gem – small family farm covered in mango trees and all kinds of vegetables and greens. The taste of fresh oranges cannot be compared to any supermarket produce!!! I will definitely keep supporting this hardworking family!

And with that I will leave you with colorful and juicy images of this magical oasis.

    Happy to see you back! 🙂 I totally get the feeling of needing to take a break from the online world, I sometimes feel the same way, and when I do, I find it’s better just to avoid posting for the sake of posting and I wait until the feeling goes away! Loving those colour combos and textures in the photographs. I can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!

      Thank you, dear Susanne! Yes, I definitely don’t want to post just because I have to – I want to share only what I’m truly inspired by 🙂 Glad you liked the post!

    Your posts are always a delight, whenever they come. As a fellow knit blogger, I know it can be hard to make the time when Life happens. No one’s judging! Much love. Hang in there.

    This is such a special post. I will agree that nothing compares to fresh produce – I’ve been eating many of my meals for the past year directly from a local farm. It’s such a wonderful feeling to support them and eat healthy.
    I love your photos – they make me hungry – but they are also very inspiring. Thank you 🙂

      I am glad you like it, Lisa! Including fresh produce into your diet makes such a huge difference!

    Lovely pictures my dear girl!
    As someone who is still in a break (and cherish every single moment of it), I’m happy to see that time is irrelevant when it comes to friendship among knitters….!! 😀

      Oh, how I am happy to see you here, dear Zeta! I missed you!!! I thought you needed to have some “me-time” – it is always a good thing to do 🙂

    Great photos. All of us can relate to taking time away from the internet. It consuming. Glad you’re back. Beautiful blog.

      Thank you so much, Carolyn! Internet can definitely take over too much of your life sometimes! It is really important to step back and recharge sometimes 🙂
