Good morning, good afternoon or good evening, depending on when you are reading this Post, which I'm writing here in ye merry olde England.
Today I am grateful for a few dry days, as we have had constant rain since the end of September! There has been severe flooding in many parts of England over the past few weeks, and it's heartbreaking to see the terrible damage caused to peoples' homes and businesses. The Army have now been called in to help out. The trouble is, when this sort of thing happens, it can be up to a year before people are able to get back into their homes. So as I sit in the comfort of my own warm home, I do give thanks.
Although I love the longer days of Summer, what a wonderful backdrop of stunning colour Autumn provides us with. I thought I would just show a few pics to remind us of the beauty of nature at this time of the year. These photos were all taken at Dartington Gardens, which is only a twenty minute drive away from where I live. The gardens there look wonderful at any time of the year...
A few years ago in my Blog, I used to have a Sunday Solace feature, so I've decided to bring it back for a few weeks. I thought I would bring you some inspirational quotes - quotes that I have always loved. I do hope you will enjoy them.....
"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt by the heart." (Helen Keller)
"Keep your face always towards the sunshine, and shadows will fall behind you." (Walt Whitman).
"What we think, we become." (Buddha).
"It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light." (Aristotle Onassis).
"Try to be a rainbow in somebody's cloud." (Maya Angelou).
"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." (Aesop)
Well, it's time for me to leave you once again. I hope all is well with you and that you have a good week ahead.
For those of you who are interested, you can see photos of my Summer garden in my new Featured Post today. Just look for it on the right hand sidebar of the Blog 😊
