Grape Hyacinth, 100 Houses and Being Kind

04 Mar
We are back to wet days which means that I can catch photos of flowers with raindrops attached and about to fall, which I love, so here is one of our beautiful Grape Hyacinths with tremulous raindrops.
A local artist, Annelie Wood, has been going around our town, doing watercolours of 100 of our beautiful houses. She has given me permission to show you this lovely work.
The following little rhyme seems right for today. It has been attributed to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 – 1882),  an American poet, best known, to me at least, for The Song of Hiawatha.
“Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the flowers,
Kind deeds are the fruits,
Take care of your garden
And keep out the weeds,
Fill it with sunshine,
Kind words, and Kind deeds.”
Just be kind. Fill your world, and that of those around you, with sunshine.

    I love the phrase ‘tremulous raindrops’. And that’s a great photograph to go along with those words!

      Thank you. It’s just how the drips seemed, just the slightest touch and they would have trembled away. 🙂
