As Hot as June

 

Continuing our marathon picture posting period, this time at our local garden centre. It was a March day, as hot as June, and time to pick some garden blooms. With its friendly tea shop, and pleasing atmosphere, our time in the see through nursery was well-spent.

As you can see, while Amanda was busy, choosing flowers, I was relaxed, sampling tea.

So, until next time, I will raise my cup and say a hearty cheers to all our readers.

 

Those whose eyes are open do not need to go to a church and look at a picture or statue of the Lord. In the eyes of every infant, in the smile of every innocent child, they receive the blessing of Christ.

Good Spirits

Hello readers, I hope you find yourselves in good spirits. This will be a quickie, as I have been finding it a little difficult to attend to many things of late. What a year it has been so far, in February we encountered bumblebees, ladybirds, mosquitos, and a little sunburn. How things are changing. If the last few years are anything to go by,  July and August will be downright cold. My mother used to say that one day the seasons will swap places, and it seems that she was right.

These photos are proof that in the Northern hemisphere spring has well and truly arrived. It’s saffron season now, and as we March into April, colour is breaking out all over the place. A happy note indeed.

With that I shall take my leave of you once again. With my thanks to all readers for dropping by. If I haven’t caught up with your latest blogs yet, please bear with me, for I will pay you a visit as soon as I can.

Peace and Namaste from Amras.

You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins….you may see the world around you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honor trampled in the sewer of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then–to learn! Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and dream of regretting. Learning is the thing for you……….”
