Life, Color and Textures

Knitting Blog Textures

Happy July! I hope you haven’t lost me. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 postย much in June, I was still working on severalย 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.

  1. Happy to see you back! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you liked the post!

  2. Lovely photos! Some of these would make great puzzle photos:)

  3. Such lovely vibrant pics – a great way to return after a break! So glad to hear your knitting sustained you – take care x

  4. 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.

  5. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. 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….!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • 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 ๐Ÿ™‚
