As I was enjoying the beautiful colours and tranquility I was very much aware of the traumatic shootings on a school campus in Virginia, USA. My heart went out to the families and friends at this very difficult time. In these days of global media coverage I know that prayers go out from all around the world and I know that prayer can lift us in our circumstances to a place we never knew existed in happier times.
I am daily amazed at the appreciative comments I receive from my blogging friends. It makes the time taken to do this so worthwhile if just one person is blessed. I am very humbled.
I remember as a child, along with many others, coming home with arm fulls of bluebells, only to be disappointed when they all went floppy in the vase. Bluebells are one of the wild flowers that do not do well indoors. Today in England they are an 'endangered species' so it is illegal to pick them anyhow. They look far better in their natural setting.
