Kew Gardens 28th Smile – my 1000th post

Standard

This post is my 1000th post

Let’s celebrate with

a Kew visit on a cold day

has its beauty.

Frost makes beautiful pictures.

There are also still Autumn coloured leaves

even now in December.

Frost – grasses – colour pictures from the Kew visit


Even in Winter Kew Garden

has so much beauty.


What good is the warmth of Summer
without the cold of Winter
to give it sweetness.

This awesomely shaped tree trunk caught my attention

in Kew Gardens

You can see whatever you like in it.

For me it is a graceful dancing lady.

What do you see ?

Food for thought

Let us focus on the good in the world. 
Let the love and light in our hearts touch each and every person we meet. 
Let love be our guide 
and our companion during our journey, 
after all it is the very essence of life. 
Let our love heal.
 Be happy ♥

Kew Gardens 27th Smile

Standard

For 10 Years Kew is having

Christmas Kew with all the lights.

Every year is different.

It was beautiful and magical

to walk through the lights

with music and Christmas atmosphere.

The Amazing Earth Tones


This was projected on the floor for us to walk over

Spring – Summer – Autumn – Winter

All was accompagnied by wonderful Christmas music.


I think as you grow older
your Christmas list gets shorter,
because the things you want
can't be bought with money.

Kew Christmas lights are always worth a visit

there is always Christmas Magic!

As Winter and Christmas is coming, it is getting colder.

My Christmas cactus seems to know it too.

I brought it in as it has buds again this year.

Food for thought

Cold tea and cold rice is bearable, 
but cold looks and cold words are not. 

One kind word can warm three winter months.

Mimi update.

The buds are now blooming, and I counted 11 blooms this morning.

It feels just like in Kew Gardens.

I am overjoyed.

Food for thought

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. 
Never make a negative decision in the low time. 
Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. 
Wait. 
Be patient. 
The storm will pass. 
The spring will come.

As the weather is mild still,

my strawberry is blooming again.

Food for thought

Every morning is a fresh beginning.
Every day is the world made new. 
Today is a new day. 
Today is my world made new. 
I have lived all my life up to this moment, to come to this day. 
This moment - this day - is as good as any moment in all eternity. 
I shall make of this day - each moment of this day - a heaven on earth. 
This is my day of opportunity.  

Dan Custer
Make today great!
It is full of opportunities!
