Colour cravings, anyone...?
Well, that makes two of us!
So, sticking my tongue out to the chilly wind, I today "recycled" a few tulips that were on their last legs, for a little colour therapy by the wall at the very back of our garden. In the wind, it was touch and go if the petals were going to stick to their day job long enough to let me play, and later, when I was carrying my "toys" indoors again, these pink princesses bowed one last time and then spread their glory all over the ground...
I have lived in the UK for over six years now, but my affection for
the old stone walls in this country has not subsided.
Not. One. Little. Bit.
And as a true quality of play, the imagination is allowed to run wild...
So what if a small green cabbage was not meant for this...
So what if it is perhaps rather more bizarre than beautiful...
Tickling the creativity for a brief but blissful moment, and aaaaah -
- my smile is instantly a little broader and more sparkling than it was a moment ago!
So, today's conclusions?
1. Allowing yourself to decorate in less than conventional ways can put a smile on your face - HEALTHY...
2. I have said it before and I will say it again: Playing with your food is a GOOD thing...
3. The wind did indeed play a February tune, but with a promise of the main act,
The Spring Overture, being only moments away...HOPE
4. A purple shawl that in real life matched the tulips perfectly can indeed look very different
in a photo...! Hmmm, I think I will have to stick to the "so what"...here too!
