Willow, Joy and Night Flowers

14 Jul

The Ingleheart Singers (and I)  went to sing at Troon Primary School Summer Fair this afternoon in the sunshine and it was lovely. In the play area there is a delightful Growing Willow tunnel for the youngsters to run through. We rehearse at the school every week but I have never seen this entrancing play space before.

I found a Ted Talk that you might like to watch, talking about joy and how to find it in your life.

Our Night Scented Stocks are filling the garden with their remarkable scent –  a joy to experience. We have grown such flowers for 40+ years and many years ago, when Daughter No 2 didn’t sleep too well at 2-3 years old, her daddy, the lovely Mr S, used to carry her out into the dark garden for her to smell ‘the night flowers’ and then she could go back to sleep. I wish I could send you the scent through the ether.
