After the 5 months over the winter when I was more ill, I have been out of my bedroom intermittently in the spring, but am physically weaker. So come summer now, and I'm having to be extra careful about my energy expenditure as at times im still feeling very unwell.
I am sad because I haven't been in amongst the flowers, like I would have liked, picking them and seeing them in the back gardens.
I really wanted to see the planting and flowers in the front border here and on Saturday I was able to. There beside the hydrangeas which I had watched from the window. And some nicotinia with lavender down under the budlia.
Mam took this photo of a butterfly. It was such a sunny half hour there and the butterflies like the purple blooms of the budlia so much they always come by it.
Things I noted...
Everything was a very pretty tones of green, the flowers were bobbing in the breeze, there were about 6 butterflies, but I only saw one bee, the lobelia was mixing with the gypsophila in dads baskets by the front door, the sky was v v blue, there was nobody about, it was quiet, there were aeroplane trails in the sky but no clouds, the tree has grown a lot in the corner, the sun was very bright,
I am cherishing this, I am praising myself in this, I am embracing this, I am accepting the fragility of how I felt in this, yet at the same time welcoming that I was up to do this, I was there again, & I am thankful for this, for butterflies, for flowers and for mam and dad most of all, Love K x
