“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.” Khalil Gibran

IMG_1213Hello I’m Mo! I live in a small town in Devon. I emigrated back, with my family, three years ago from Aotearoa New Zealand. We moved back to be closer to friends and family in 2016. The time has flown past and looking at the old posts on this website I can hardly believe that my girls are now twelve and nine. We are as a family still passionate about creativity and nurturing authentic experiences. We live in remarkable times and now more than ever before we need to foster our connection to the natural world. I will be sharing my thoughts, ideas, encounters with wildlife and travelling adventures with you. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. you’re very kind to follow my little blog, Mo. Hope the foraging keeps you healthy. My daughter sent me on a foraging course a while back – fascinating, esp finding out the benefits of Japanese knotweed, the scourge of all London gardeners!

    1. My pleasure Geoff. Your blog is an inspiring melange of different experiences and wisdom. Most importantly it’s fun to read! I will have to do a little research into Japanese knotweed as I’ve never heard of it.


      1. It’s such a pest that it’s presence in gardens can knock thousands off house prices but when cooked its like a subtle rhubarb..


  2. Lovely to “meet” you Mo. You live in Devon a special place for us both, we have family/friends living there. I can see the attraction of living back in the UK. We certainly miss our time spent there.

    I look forward to reading more on life in Devonshire.


    1. Thank you Suzanne, likewise! There are certainly many things our family miss about NZ! Having said that you can’t have it all. We do love Devon and the easy relaxed and slightly sleepy nature of the West Country life.

  3. Hi Mo. It’s lovely to meet you and to know that you now live in Devon. We lived in Crediton for a while several years ago and loved it. Having said that, I’d love to see New Zealand. I’ll look forward to finding out more about Devon and (perhaps) also NZ in your posts. 🌸

    1. Thanks Millie. Crediton is a lovely place. We’re in Tiverton so slightly less rural. Plenty to see and do, although I do miss the cultural diversity of Auckland.
