Yesterday 5:42 p.m....under the lemon of the many bunnies that made their appearance in April popped into the garden to say a quick hello...and probably to admire Yasmin, with her black and white feathers...

I do get the words journal and journey mixed up frequently... probably because I never go on a journey without one...Not that I get away from the Garden very often - too much to do! None the less I do believe life to be a journey in it self. And a journey is less interesting when you have no one to share it with...Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.

 Lilymoon's Note:
Lea lives on the island of St Francis, one of the many tiny isles that make up an otherworldly mosaic on Lazuli Ocean... Aged only 13, from the day her young hands were strong enough to open the heavy lock on the door to the Aviary Garden, her work has been to take care of the Aviary and its colourful residents...Now a grown woman, when not taking care of day to day chores she spends her time studying the nature of birds and her environment. These drawings are from her personal collection of notebooks...essentially fragments of her feelings and her world.
