I love flowers! Our lives mimic theirs with birth, opening, fulfilment, beauty and death.
My daughter gave me a beautiful bunch for Mothers Day. I met the florist half way to our gate as he delivered mid morning on Sunday. How amazing is that! What a wonderful gift.
I have watched them change all week and am sharing some moments with you.
Oh……. the scent that invaded the cottage was delightful!
I couldn’t pick a favourite. Thank you for my week of flowers Shae.
May beauty abound in your life.
Thank you ‘Powers that Be’ ….for flowers!
The morning breeze that hints of warmer days to come touches the valley floor below and the climbs to the top of our ridgeline. The days bring warm earth smells and feet covered with dew and mowed lawn clippings. This year I have added a few annuals to rock faces and they are beginning to show. The days are longer because I am waking with the sun earlier and I love that! Sometimes the fog is still heavy in the valley at 8 and I have even noticed low cloud misting the ridge line after sunset.
But it is sunset I want to reveal today.
Today a good friend underwent an operation to fix damages from a serious accident where life could have been forgotten. I passed time during the day doing the daily chores all of which seem somewhat mundane where someone’s
life is concerned. The day did not flow as well as usual but I expect some preparation was being done by the universe in other places as it flowed very well in that operating theatre.
I spent the approaching evening sitting on my deck overlooking the world as I know it. Wondering too how that good friend was doing after his six hour op to restore his good looks! Now, I believe, looking like a beardless Samurai Warrior.
Watching the sunset always brings much gratitude for the life I live here and never fails to amaze. God’s colour palate is endless and this
world is a beautiful place.
It was late into the night before I heard everything had progressed well and a sleepy voice confirmed Life is good and meant for living.
Blessings go to all who give their time to ensure we have a chance to live it!.
Much love and happiness……….and a sunset or two!
