Forget-me nots are beautiful little flowers that spring up all over the place at this time of the year. They grow between my patio slabs in my back garden and invade my tub plants but I never mind as they are not really invasive and can quite easily be controlled. Besides..... I really like them.
Taking a short cut through this church yard with my friend, Audrey, I decided to snap the scene as it seemed to be such an appropriate name....... forget-me-not, in the church yard. Most of these headstones are devoid of any lettering as they must be extremely old. So it seemed poignant to me that the forgotten person buried there should have these little flowers growing over them.
Walking around church yards can be quite fascinating and I don't feel it is at all morbid. I think Audrey thought so though as she hurried through.
I can't think what the yellow flowers are right now but they must have escaped from a nearby garden and seemed to compliment the blue of the forget-me-nots. There was a definite tranquility there that caught my imagination.
The weather, as usual, has been predictably unpredictable.
We have experienced cool wet weather for a few days but today is sunny and dry for a change.
I have been enjoying the book, The Butterfly House by Marcia Preston. I am half way through it and don't want to put it down.
It is a while since I felt like this.
Somedays I would just like to sit and read and not have to bother with work........ sigh...... but today it beckons.
