It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Today was a good day

Today we had lunch in a beautiful old antique building that has been renovated and turned into a fantastic restaurant with delicious food and it was all a treat from our realtor !
We  bought a house today..

It went  easily and in an ordinary way as these things do ... in the US .
In Argentina, it would have been totally different and in its way, more charming, more confusing, a little crazy and a bit more fun.
But we were content with the way today went.

We went back to the house and  met the painter  and got ideas for French doors and gardens and decks and I just wandered the gardens and listened to the amazing sound of sooo many birds.
I saw more than a few Red Winged Blackbirds.
We will be visited by Hummingbirds soon, or so I have been told.
I am getting hummingbird feeders .. they will all be welcome in my garden.

I have big ideas for the pool and the pool house and all that jazz.
I have big ideas for the area where a hot tub stands but not for long ..
I even have big ideas for small charming stone walls  ...
I am in the world of stone walls now... I gotta have one too !

If anyone has ideas regarding gardens, birds, and living in the country, feel free to offer them here .. or send notes.

Yes, Today was a good day.
Today we bought a new home in New York .
So I am showing you my old home .. ( our Argentine home) .. I loved that placeĀ !
Our old home in Buenos Aires ..


  1. Congratulations on your new house. I hope it is full of joyful memories for you. My advice for the garden is to live with it for a year and see what evolves in your mind.
