There may be times when I will need to ‘suspend’ the blog, perhaps when I am away and it is less easy to get on to the internet, or just because things become very busy. At the moment, however, the daily discipline of writing for me, and I hope of reading for you, seems to be working.
I try, when I remember, to take photos which might be ‘useful one day’. This is one of them! Hazel writes our MWiB Prayer for the Week and this is her front garden, photographed in early August. I can only describe it as a riot of colour! Perhaps one day I will invite Hazel to write a guest blog and explain why gardens and gardening matter so much to her.
I am still trying to disprove the theory that when you retire you take up gardening! Not actually having a garden, only fields, does help at the moment. However I must admit that I love the variety of colour displayed in plants and flowers. Yesterday I was at the funeral of a man who had produced the most stunning blooms on his allotment. There were dahlias and sunflowers to brighten up the service and some flowers had been picked freshly from the allotment yesterday morning and were carried proudly and lovingly by his family.
Think of a world without any flowers…
