Over 35 Butterfly Species develop in the month of May.  Britain's largest Butterfly, the Swallowtail, develops in May!  These beautiful creatures, filled with color and style are often used in design and we see why!

Land Rover

The Land Rover, a classic British Staple, originated in 1947. Designed by Maurice Wilks, who was the chief designer at Rover Company, Maurice was inspired by an American WWII Jeep.  Here is a picture of the original.

The early choice of color, various shades of green, was determined by a surplus of military aircraft cockpit paint.

This classic British Automobile, stood for superiority, wealth, and safety.  Take a look at our favorite ads-

Teepee Love

Traditionally a teepee was made with animal skins and wooden poles. 
It provided warmth and comfort to Native Americans in winter and during heavy rains.  
It could be disassembled and packed away quickly when a tribe decided to move.

Follow us on Pinterest to see more teepees for inspiration to create a new summer destination!

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all!
We hope everyone enjoys this special day, on Sunday.  We will leave you with a few of our favorite Motherly quotes-

If you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do well matters very much."  
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

No man is poor who has had a godly mother.
Abraham Lincoln

Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness.  If love is sweet as a flavor, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.
Stevie Wonder

Lily of the Valley

Lily of the Valley is one of our favorite parts of Spring.  Being the perfect early summer ground cover and for the great fragrance it gives off, Lily of the Valley is top on our gardening list.  Cheers to Spring!
