Happiness, a special gift, from a special friend

What gratitude I have for my dear friend SP who gave me a plant pot recently and told me “to water it and you will have a lovely surprise”.  After a week of careful nurturing and watching and waiting, a huge green been shape thing forced its way up through the soil.  Then miraculously in three days this very stong  shoot revealed a word that made me feel very warm and smiley.  What  a wonderful friend, who went to all this trouble…..

It always amazes me, the miracle of life, as it springs forth………………

Working under pressure, why do I need deadlines

The deadline is getting close, the pressure is on , i have flowers coming out of my ears.  Why is it I do best under pressure? I have had months to get this project off the ground, all the ideas percolating around inside until I come up with something that just “feels right”.   With the deadline looming I am forced to make a decison and when I do I feel a mixture or elation and peace.  My body acts out what my heart is telling me, this is the one!!!!!!  this is it, a real sense of calm and wellbeing resides, the anxiety of getting it right subsides and off I go, it all seem quite effortless once I start.

I adore roses, so its no surprise that my hands have cut, crimped and glued many today!!  They look so fragile but at the same time so robust!!, there heady perfume and profuse flowering habits fill me with joy.  My favourite perfume which I wear all he time is Rose Absolue.  It is said the Cleopatra laid a thick carpet 2 feet thick of rose petals for a banquette given for Mark Anthony………..

I am also filling some perspex boxes with a swarm of butterflys, about 350 in all.  Then three large trees, one tree per perspex box.  Oh my get a move on CAROL……. no time to write blogs 🙂
