Life is a Challenge!

By Honeycombebeach


It is really cold this morning and I am wondering if I need to pack more warm clothes in my case, although if I do, then I will have to take something out, because at the moment, it is definitely exercising my brain trying to get a “quart into a pint pot”!

My wander around the garden before 8 o’clock yielded quite a few “tiny” shots, but when they were up on the computer screen, I liked this one the best.  Although the Pulmonary flowers aren’t out completely, they are my favourite colour, so won the day.  I never realised how “hairy” the little bud cases were - more protection for the flowers, I guess.

I chose this quote because today is the anniversary of the death of one of my sister’s twin sons.  Dean was only 39 when he died 3 years ago so today, we will think of him and all he meant to his family and many friends.

“Don't be ashamed to weep; 
     'tis right to grieve. 
Tears are only water, 
     and flowers, trees, 
          and fruit cannot grow 
               without water - 
but there must be sunlight also. 
A wounded heart will heal in time, 
     and when it does, 
          the memory and love 
of our lost ones 
     is sealed inside 
          to comfort us.”
