Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

  3. I have a seed pack of those same, all red, round, radishes sitting on my desk beside me, waiting to be sown; but it's too WET. Good unsalted butter, and freshly picked radishes; food of the gods. Have a great week. Cro x

    1. After Sister V's trip to Paris a couple of years ago, she introduced me to radishes and (good) butter...as you say HEAVEN! Now, home-grown radishes...that's taking it to the next level!

    1. What is it with this weather Molly? We keep being teased by the odd sunny warm day, and then Mother Nature goes and chucks all matter of stuff at us. We had hail and sleet last week. Roll on summer! How are the poly-tunnels doing?

  14. Such awesome pictures; so much better than the wasteland that is daytime tv (which is not so different from nighttime tv).
