Enchanted April - Part 2
I seem to have taken an unconscious blogging break. It could be the Easter Holidays or the mountain of sewing that might serve as an excuse. Deep down I know it is because the happy words have been hard to find these past few weeks. There are many things I could be writing about and would not wish to spoil them by a lack of enthusiasm or tinge of sadness so I shall say that hopefully in a few days normal service will be resumed...
I've just been sitting out in the garden with my cup of tea (where would we be without our cups of tea) and thinking just what a wonderful month April is. Sitting outside you really get a sense of just how enchanted it can be. A month of feverish growth, overnight surprises:
Morning greetings from the first poppies
My lovely wild celandines have forget-me-nots as new friends
The wild garlic sits happily behind the geranium nodding its head
And up in the apple tree a bluetit plays amongst the blossom, completely unaware of its beauty against the Spring blue sky.
On Saturday a parcel arrived for me. A complete surprise, one that had me guessing. A box full of sunshine and kindness from somebody who reads my blog. She does not have a blog of her own (although I keep trying to persuade her) and has read mine since I started. She has bought many things from my Etsy shop and we have shared many enjoyable emails and much news together. She is a very busy lady in the middle of a house move and yet, after emailing me last week, she sensed that things were not all rosy and sent me this. Yes of course I cried when I opened it!!!!!!! Thank you Jackie.
Thank you too to everyone that leaves a comment, sends an email and writes a post, for all the happy (and sad) words we share.
So, yes, now is the time to go and find those happy words .... I'll be back soon.
