Market, Parade and Happiness

The Christmas Market went well despite the appalling weather.

Part of my stall

It was the Lights Switch-on Parade tonight and my choirs were singing in the pouring rain but with smiles on our faces! The Parade went by in a misty blur.

It will be December tomorrow. Here is Action for Happiness’s advice for the month.

For my cat-loving friends…..  enjoy this.

Altruism, Beans and A Butterfly

Action for Happiness are focussing on kindness this month.

We have our first harvest of beans – beautifully purple until they are cooked and then they are, disappointingly, just green.

We’ve been at the Ecp Park this evening for an Extinction Rebellion meeting. Beforehand we walked around and spotted a Painted Lady butterfly on the rough wall surrounding the fire pit.

Bees, Blue Flower and July Action

From the kitchen this morning we could see the bees on the Poppies. I took the photo on a very long zoom.

On our walk around the Flat Lode Trail, we saw lots of these little puffy blue flowers. Can anyone id them?

Action for Happiness July poster is aimed at us taking care of ourselves in this uncertain and worrying world.

The Big Lunch, Some Produce and Joyful June

The Big Lunch at the local allotments was lovely, lots of neighbours and a delicious spread including some scrumptious miniature pasties.

The Poppies were striking and the Artichokes massive.

Here is the Action for Happiness calendar for June.

Joyful June

La Fête du Muguet, Happiness and Pooh’s Wisdom

Our Dearest friend, Kath, for whom this blog is written and who died far too early, had, with her husband, a house in Meysaac, France. Following the rather lovely French tradition, explained below, she used to give me a little bunch of Lily of the Valley each year on May 1st or, if we weren’t together, she would send a card. In her memory, several years ago, I  planted Lily of the Valley in the wall garden at the back. This is the first year they have produced more than a few blooms.

Lily of the Valley

According to French tradition, give those you love a little bouquet of Lily-of-the-Valley (Muguet), to wish them happiness and good luck in celebration of the arrival of spring because on May 1st, 1561, King Charles IX of France received a lily of the valley (or Muguets in French) as a lucky charm, and thereafter decided to offer one each year to the ladies of the court.  Dear Readers, please accept this little flower in the spirit of La Fête du Muguet.

Action for Happiness have issued their calendar for May. Here, I share it with you.

Winnie the Pooh always gets it right!
