A Big Thank-you, Fritillaria and Proust

19 Mar

1   My 1000th follower has signed up today! Thank you so much to all of you who follow, like and take the time to comment. I started this blog in 2011 for myself and to honour my beautiful friend of 30 years whom we lost too early to cancer.  I wanted to seize the day, look for the positive in everything in a tangible way and really see the beauty all around me. I have been delighted by the responses from readers all around the world, from 151 countries in fact!   This bouquet of mixed daffodils from our garden is for all of you!

3    My friends send me some beautiful words! Yesterday it was the ABC of Happiness and today these wonderful words of Marcel Proust – just perfect for lovers of words and for gardeners – and I am both. Thank you, Sallie.
