Spring is Coming!

Natives on a thrifted picnic tablecloth


Grevillea and erisotemon


Pink daisies on the verandah



And lavender growing on long stems to fragrance the house.

When I walk into school I often see an elderly Chinese lady who shuffles down the street to pick up her grandchildren from school. She walks with some difficulty, and I feel sorry for her, sometimes having sore knees and feet myself. Today I smiled to see that she had a yellow daisy in her hair, tucked behind her ear. Yes, spring is coming.

That first picture is so perfect. Now I have a vision of that elderly woman too. Bless her.
