my favourite garden has been closed due to the circumstances.
I miss going there so much.
They have now re -opened with limited visitors going in
and you have to book a time slot.
Unfortunately I have to take the train to get there and
I am not quite prepared to do that just yet.
So I went through my pictures from previous visits
and enjoyed a stroll through.
Here is what I found:

… it does say Red Dragon….. 🙂
and something smelly
Yes, it was really smelly. What an amazing plant.
Hope you enjoyed my little walk through time, colours and the garden.
Please click on the pictures to enlarge them.
Pictures are from visits during the last 2 years.
I think I’ll pace myself this week.
I’ll start by being quietly wonderful on Monday
fabulous on Tuesday
brilliant on Wednesday
awesome on Thursday and
then slowly build up to being magnificent by Friday!
Why not follow this example and have a great week ahead 🙂

Have a magnificent weekend!
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.
I love the short stories of Tania Konnerth.
