Sunny days are for sunflowers and happy moods and motivation.
We are getting plenty around here.
I take these lovely multi-headed bronze sunflowers to market and what doesn't sell comes home to sit here on my bench seat like a big outdoor vase of flowers.
Sunny days are for painting and I am getting plenty of that done too.
The chook shed has had a spruce up and a couple of the gates and arches around here.
The cubby house is next in my sights as I am expecting a visit from a 3yr old nephew.
Just a little excited as we haven't met before.
His visit has also given me the impetus to get in and make a genuine start on the fairy garden.
...What wondrous life is this I lead!
Ripe apples drop about my head
The luscious clusters of the vine
Upon my mouth do crush their wine;
the nectarine and curious peach
Into my hands themselves do reach:
Stumbling on melons as I do pass,
Ensnared in flowers, I fall on grass.
From "The Garden" by Andrew Marvel (circa 1650)
Hope your day is filled with sunshine and if you are having a gloomy winter day in the north, just close your eyes and imagine it so.
