Every leaf is unique

Standard

Looking closer at an Agave at Kew Gardens, you can see clearly that every leaf has a unique pattern of the way it has grown from the inside.

The leaves have similar patterns but evey one is unique to its’ unfolding.

We are unique creatures, every one of us.

Be YOU.
Don't be someone else.
YOU are a unique individual.
Be proud... rock it loud.

Kew Gardens 14th Smile

Standard

A new day – a new visit to my favourite Kew Gardens

A walk with a friend through Kew, drinking in the many beautiful colours of plants, I don’t remember the names of.

Here a collage of the beautiful mix.

There are some Eucalytus trees, it fascinated me that there are blooms, fruits and unripe fruits on the same tree at the same time.

Sometimes …. just spending some quality time with good friends is the only therapy you need.

Coving nightmare – Don’t give up

Standard

A bit of DIY turned out more complicated than I thought.

I wanted to add coving in my dining room and bought enough for it.

Yes, I have already run out as I cut so many angles the wrong way round. 😦

The long stretches were fine, now round the chimney breast – it is so difficult.

slide the slider to see both images

Inside angles, outside angles – wrong angles….. nothing fits….

Thomas knows what to do!



Following his example,

I chill,

I source some more coving,

think really hard before cutting,

I know I can do it!


Even if you stumble
you are still going forward!

Even with setbacks

we can go on and achieve the impossible.

Don’t give up whatever you do.

Go for it!
