Hello world!

I have been feeling comfortable in the world today.  Did this make it easy for a neighbour to hug me at the supermarket and tell me she loved my garden with its topiary heart?   I told her that  when I trim the heart and look after it, I feel  I am looking after my own heart, myself and my life.  I know that if I have time to care for it I have time to care for me.  I grew it from a cutting I was given as a love token. When that love broke I was tempted to let the heart grow wild or  to cut it down but no, I  tended it and both it and my heart are fine.

 The morning walk gave me blackberries and spiders webs ; not just those like lace shawls snagged on the blackberry brambles but perfect circles, with a spider at each bullseye, all jewelled with dew.

  1. I love that you continued caring for your heart-shaped topiary. That’s a huge statement, and an encouragement for all of us to remain stedfast when we feel like laying down our clippers and walking away. Thank you.

    Thank you, Grace.
    My topiary heart has been pierced – by sparrows who find shelter in it. I am pleased.
