Hyde Hall – Take 2

Standard

Again I went with my lovely friend to

Hyde Hall Garden as there was a Flowershow.

I totally loved it again. (see last post here)

Now in August, other flowers bloome,d

the sun was shining, a summer breeze in our hair…

What colours…
I love grasses

Some close ups with my Canon Camera

Bees were pollinating.

Plants make people happy !

We had a wonderful day, we were very happy in this garden.

A garden is not a place
but a journey.

I leave you with a sea of Echinaceas

Wishing you a wonderful Summer !

Food for thought

Leftovers in their less visible form 
are called memories.
Stored in the refrigerator of the mind 
and the cupboard of the heart.

♥ Have you made some memories today? ♥

BE YOU – a Poem

Standard
BE YOU

Be like water, keep flowing along,
Be like the wind, blowing soft or strong,
Be like the earth - nurturing, healing,
Be like the sky - open, revealing,
Be like the fire burning bright,
Be like the sun, bringing warmth and light.
Above all, be YOU

This beautiful poem

was written

by my

friend Birgit.

You can find Birgit’s

website here

and Facebook here

I love that poem and got permission to share it here.

My heart in the garden

…in the Bamboo pot!

Everyone has inside of her a piece of good news. 
The good news is that you don’t know 
how great you can be! 
How much you can love! 
What you can accomplish! 
And what your potential is!

♥ Remember, you are amazing! ♥

Update: for some reason, when I publish a post on my phone it does not publish on the right date. This post I actually published on 28th July , yet it says 21st July. I’m a bit confused. It seems to go right on my Chromebook. Never trust the phone 🙂

It is really hot in the UK today,

it feels like Spain, who needs to go on holiday 🙂

Even the sky seems to be on fire – taken at sunset yesterday

Food for thought

Remember to spend quality time with yourself 
so that you can experience being, 
instead of doing 
where you can feel relaxed, 
instead of rushed 
where you take time out to get in touch with yourself 
and fall in love with life again.

My Hosta blooms. 🙂 Isn’t it lovely ?

I bought it in Hyde Hall!

See my last post about Hyde Hall.

Food for thought

May you always have
the sun on your face
And a dry path to walk.
May the stars fill your eyes
And the moon light
The way to your door.
May you know
Peace in your dreams
And love in your heart.

Hyde Hall

A wonderful friend invited me to

Hyde Hall Garden

It has themed gardens like

Cottage Garden, Modern Country Garden,

Dry Garden, Rose Garden and more.

Country Garden

Now in June/July everything is blooming,

such a joy to walk through gardens.

We had a wonderful time and took many photos.

Please sit with me on the bench and enjoy the beauty!

Rest awhile,
take in the beauty that surrounds you.
A beautiful garden
is a haven of happiness.

plants happiness.

Are you enjoying a garden in July?

We are doing our kitchen new, from scratch.

We are still on the destroying part. 🙂 That is fun!

So we found 5 different wallpapers on different walls.

It must have been redecorated many times before.

Food for thought

If you have nothing 
except strong faith and a positive attitude,
you have much more than someone
who has everything
except strong faith and a positive attitude.
You can be happy with nothing,
whereas they can't be happy with anything.

What fun things have you done today?

Two Steps from Hell Concert

Standard

We have been waiting 2 years for this concert to take place.

As it has been postponed twice because of Covid. See here.

Finally it happened in London.

It was well worth the wait.

I am very passionate about their music as you know

and seeing them live was the best ever.

It was epic, awesome, amazing, brilliant with their best music which

I have been listening to for more than10 years.

I met other wonderful TSFH fans and felt fantastic in the midst of it. 

They played their hearts out

and we could not only hear but really feel the music.

The orchestra and soloists were amazing! ♥

Thomas Bergersen and Nick Phoenix = TSFH

Words fail me – it is something to remember forever.

A best ever experience!

A dream came true.
