Singing, Rainbows and Narcissi

08 Jan

I was very happy this morning to be able to sit in our sun room for an hour, watching the birds and feeling the sun through the glass, first time in a fortnight. One of my lovely choir friends called me on the phone and The Suitcase Singers sang for me which just about made my happiness complete! Thank you all so much.
Our delicate Christmas cactus still has a few blooms.

As the low sun was streaming in through the windows, it was catching the crystal that hangs there and rainbows were being thrown around the room. I tried several photos and was delighted by the serendipity of the rainbow catching one of the seagulls on the rooftops of our driftwood houses, a delightful piece by Jo Perry.

Mr S found more flowers on the doorstep this afternoon. This time they were glorious Cornish Narcissi which have filled the sunroom with their delicious scent. They came with a note marking our 6th anniversary of moving to this house and were from our lovely next door neighbours who made us feel so welcome from that very first evening.

    My mother-in-law has a Christmas cactus that belonged to her mother. On the day her mother died it bloomed and has every year since on the anniversary of her death! Love the rainbow !

    The flowers are lovely, what kind neighbours. Loving the driftwood houses and the rainbow on the gull makes it magical. So often its the little things we too easily miss in our busy lives that touch us.

      That’s why I try to make a point of finding three special things each day. Thank you for calling in and taking the time to comment. 🙂
