This morning I once more found myself outside enjoying a beautiful morning: A “raindrops on roses,” moment of nurture that filled me up and started my day delightfully.
No roses were actually involved on this occasion, but after overnight rain, raindrops were on pretty much every other flower!
Enough said, I hope you are enjoying your own moments of nurture, whatever they may be 🙂
Sunflower awakening to early morning sun
Busy Bee gets busy
Bright morning, bright blooms
… whiskers on kittens – my gardening assistant, Bertie
One of the day’s new marigolds
And one that was open overnight 😉
Hollyhocks drenched in sparkling rain
Also available in peachy cream…
… and burgundy red
After a weekend away, today’s moment of nurture was simple: A happy few minutes wandering around the allotment catching up with new flowers and baby veg.
Nurturing this plot, creating its style, choosing what to plant, the simple activities of weeding, watering and harvesting… many calming and nurturing moments out here!
Sweetpeas rambling up the runner beans
Some of the sunflowers tonight…
… and the start of the sunflowers, 3 months earlier 😉
Lovely seeds developing
Coriander, Marigolds, Mint, Sage and Parsnips
Endless sunny marigolds
Creating and tending a little bit of planting feels nurturing
