These past few days have been a full of extremes: searing humidity by day and blankets at night; temperaments and feelings deeply felt; bone-weary days spent catering and afternoons reserved for tea, thrifting and good friends. Upheaval always brings curious change. That strangling humidity gave way to a sudden explosion of peonies, and their perfume calms our sometimes frantic household.

Tree branches sway, heavy with rain. Another cup of tea and the weekend soon begins …

May yours bring welcome change!
