Yesterday Mel, Russ and their three sprogs left after 2 weeks with us.
We have loved having them here
The house is quiet and orderly again
But kinda empty
They'll be loving being back in their own space,
with plenty of place for the kids to run
And of course, being reunited with Honey and Lucas hounds
Now we just hope the their floors are replaced quickly by the insurance company!
On another note altogether:
I was out for a stroll the other evening when I spotted this:
On closer inspection -
I still find it amazing how powerful the force of Life is!
This little plant has pushed up right through the tar.
Talk about "blooming where you are planted!"
There is something compelling about this - I wouldnt even have noticed this ordinary plant if it were not for the place it has come up.
How noticeable is an ordinary life
when it is lived in beauty in the midst of difficulty?
