This and that!

This is where I go Thursday to Monday morning. A haven in the hills - that sounds almost poetic! Colombo where I normally live is hot and humid and my husband and I are always rushed. There is always so much of work to get through.

Rozella which is our "up country" home is green, surrounded by tea gardens, almost always 21 degrees and cool by Sri Lankan standards, the only sound is the train on the far hill going every hour and two dogs who adore us.  The first picture is the house, the second our bed of leeks  (nursery stage)and the third is the tea gardens overshadowing the house. Not very good photographs.

The only drawback is that there is no internet connectivity there. I am working on this but doubtful that I am going to have much success in finding any way around this problem. There are not enough users to make this worthwhile for anyone it seems.

Have a good weekend everyone.

It looks like a beautiful and peaceful place to spend the weekends. I think I could get used to being internet-free for that :-)

As a retreat it looks fantastic! I'd give anything for a break from the frantic running-errands-for-kids pace of the past couple of weeks.
