Night Sky, Lambs’ Ears and A Proverb

20 Jun

1   Last night’s sky from the bedroom window was still beautiful at almost 11pm – just a couple of days before the longest day.

2    I love the texture of the silvery grey leaves of the Stachys Byzantina. They are just asking to be gently stroked which is perhaps why the common name is Lambs’ Ears. Its tiny purple flowers are just beginning to open.

    I like the proverb and the picture it has been matched with. The children show so much joy in their laughter.

    These three things seem worlds apart. Yet miraculously, be it in spirit or by the spark in which they inspire us, you have managed to thread them nicely together. Thank you. ……good night little lambs, good night.
