I see my mind as a tapestry woven through with memories, dreams and thoughts.

Sunday Thoughts

Just thinking. Thinking about spring; renewal and birth. Thinking about our imminent grandaughter.

And then I saw that, from a few bulbs/corms of freesia, given by a neighbour several years ago, have sprung myriad freesias, in different colours, hiding all over our mountainside garden.




This one, amongst the wild verdant, post winter, growth is the colour of those in my wedding bouquet.

The beauty, the fragrance and the peace of a day standing still.

'Stiller - than the fields
At the full Dew -
Beautiful - as pictures -
No Man drew'

Thank you so much for your marital advice on our blog! Your words of wisdom are helpful, especially since they come from someone whose union has endured for four decades! (Kudos!)

Love to see these signs of spring and rebirth -- while you wait for the "special delivery".

Thank you, Kristen! We have a grandson who is eight, so a grandaughter will just add to that in a special way.
Am having a peaceful Monday.
