We all have unique gifts, we are all valued and needed.
The sad earthworm.
Once upon a time there was an earthworm.
Often he was just lying there, feeling sad to be only an earthworm.
Why can’t he be a bird or a fish or a human being.
Each being seems to be able to do something special, each being seems to be worth more than just a simple earthworm.
One day a girl came by. She saw the worm and picked him up. He felt worried and thought that was the end of his life.
Instead the girl put him into a jam jar. There was soil and some leaves, actually it was quite comfortable even though a bit small.
The next day the girl took the worm to school. She was asked to stand in front of class to deliver an essay.
With astonishment the earthworm heard the girl talk about earthworms.
How earthworms live, how important they are and that they do something unique.
To make fertile soil out of leaves and dirt.
They are the earthworms which make make sure that constantly new things can grow in fertile soil.
And when the girl released the worm later that evening back into the garden, he was the happiest worm in the world.

Kew Gardens is closed.
So I look around and
I found my own ‘Kew’ Gardens right here:
When you enter you find beautiful colours and shapes:
Following through there is the palm garden with
3 different palm ‘trees’
Continuing the path you see different greens
Then we come to the Bonsai Trees Section, there is a Chestnut and a Maw Bonsai in the making.
And finally to the Alpine house, where we find this:
I hope you enjoyed the tour through Ute’s Kew.
Wishing you a blessed Easter weekend!
Keep the distance and stay healthy!

but we can show our love in different ways.
support each other,
show you care.
Stay strong, stay focused,
and continue to follow the rules of your government.
We can do it together.
A big thank you to all the people on the front line,
who keep everything going.
You are amazing in what you do.
