Gifts from Mother Nature.

"Tulips, brazen painted hussies,
Part their bright lips trying to seduce
The busy buzzing bees far too bold for dainty tussies
Vibrant tulip flowers produce
Visions certain to please."

Mary Havran

Oh to be able to dry washing outside again.  *pleasurable sigh*

Gifts to self.  Another Sascalia print, this time for my newly-decorated bedroom.

It's my fourth which I think qualifies me as an official collector.  This is 'Flower Girl'.  She has a vulnerability about her and a look of wistfulness in her eyes which appeal to me.

The gift of opportunity to indulge.

A gift from God.  Ed Sheeran's performance on The Brits 2015 was nothing short of breathtaking.  I'm not normally one for watching things over and over again but I can't imagine ever tiring of this.  Exquisite.

A gift of love … and much-needed time and space to let me breathe for which I'm so grateful.
