A lover of all things floral am I,
A gardener I am not
One friend has suggested that the only hope for our garden
is to pull it all out and start again
But my garden grows as do my friendships
with things and people I love
and just because they may
not be what everyone else thinks is perfect
does not mean they do not have beauty all of their own.
Take my current floral arrangement (?)
it does have that rather casual just stuck in look!
Yellow oxalis and periwinkle!
The periwinkle lasts for about a week
the oxalis, bless its little heart closes up late in the afternoon
and next morning opens wide again
and has been doing that for two weeks now
Actually I am off to check on it...maybe it's taking root in the water!!!
and if it is
I will be thrilled
as it adds such bright cheery colour
on these bleak first days of spring
