Wake up with some botanical boosts
It’s been a tough few weeks mentally, with loss and grief. So I’ve taken pleasure from the simple things. A glimpse of sun, a light breeze on my face, a warm bath, a scented candle, a warm cup of tea on a frosty morning., a supportive arm around your shoulder, a warm smile, a shared joke, a dog’s enthusiastic welcome, watching the birds washing their wings in the feeder. These are the moments that become our days. Vanessa asked us to buy some flowers for ourselves. As it happens I didn’t have to as a sweet friend came for supper bearing a small bunch of purple tulips. How I love their cheerful stance. A bonus too our magnolia tree bloomed for the first time this week and it’s so pretty. They can’t help but raise a smile and that can’t be a bad thing.
