More Goodbyes, Pink and Unknown Flower

17 Jul

1   The Munich branch of the family left this morning – more tears, more hugs……

First cousins hug

2   So many pink flowers on the walk back from the park

Dog rose

Nutmeg flower

Lovely pale pink rose

3   This afternoon I found this, as yet unknown, flower in among the broad beans and their companion planting of Limnanthus (poached egg plant)  Anyone out there know what it is?

Beautiful blue veining

    I love seeing the three beauties in your everyday life. It means a lot to me to drop by and see the regular positives. May we all learn from you!

    I am obviously not regular enough as I didn’t know you had Munich family visiting. How lovely, the goodbyes, because you know a pink-flowered ribbon connects you, and unravels all the way back to their land – and thus you, & others with heart like you, connected,
    connect the world.

      What a lovely thing to say about the pink ribbon. i am missing them all so much, eight people left all in 24 hours and that has left a big hole! Thank you for your kindness 🙂

      That is just perfect! serendipity indeed that it turned up today when I was just a bit low with more than half the family being gone, down from 13 to five.
      Thank you xx

          You are right but we still have one beautiful daughter here and my brother and sister-in-law from America will be in Cornwall for another 12 days so there will be lots more fun. It’s just too quiet today and my heart does feel heavy! 🙂
