Plant a Tree for Hope and A Gallery of Beauty

08 May

My blog is for the Beautiful Things that I find around me every day and I have found some, of which more later. We have spent the day driving in our beautiful county of Cornwall, looking for a tree to plant in our garden, not in memory of someone we have lost but in the name of hope for the future, despite the fact that  we are to have a Conservative government for another five years. So much of our social fabric has been destroyed over the last five years that first thing this morning, all we all felt was despair but we have to bounce back, organise and care for each other. In the words of a friend “It’s a perfect opportunity to practise loving kindness, compassion, service, smiling and being kind – even in adverse circumstances.”

Now, a gallery of today’s beauty. Click on any photo for detail or the caption. All these things have made me smile.

    I love the roadway with the trees meating overhead, the owls are a hoot! What is that pink flower, it looks very sculptural?

      I wish I knew what the plant is, should have looked at the label. If we go back, I’ll look next time. Love your comment about the owls! We have lots of lanes that are tunnels of trees when the leaves are out. They are very beautiful. 🙂
