Rain, Mint and Happiness

04 Jul

1    I don’t mind the rain at all! I love raindrops on flowers and the serendipity of reflections that turn up.

2   Our lovely neighbour gave us some just-dug new potatoes and I cooked them with mint. Today I used the very pretty Variegated Mint from our herb garden.

    I love your quote about happiness, it is so true. My hope is it will compel many to act.

    Love the quote. And we do have that power with everyone whose lives we touch, I think.

      They really are delicious, especially with a little salted butter. 🙂

      If only I had the kitten whose whiskers I could photograph! I shall have to ask our eldest to try to get a photo of the whiskers of her enormous Maine Coon kittens, already, at 5 months, as big as a moggie! 🙂
      Thank you for calling in and taking the time to comment.
