I’m sorry I haven’t been posting a lot here lately.
This is partly because, like everyone else, I’m struggling with the enormity of what’s going on in the world.
Also, I’m finally, finally making a little progress with my book about crows, and I need to keep my head involved in that as much as I possibly can.
These two things are still standing in my way— but I thought I could at least send you a few flowers.
I traditionally post images of some of the early blooming hellebores in my garden on social media around this time of year — offering a little hope of spring around the corner. They are always displayed in a little green vintage bowl I picked up at a thrift shop many years ago.
Today, however, I suddenly felt that this bowl was no longer big enough for all the good wishes I needed to send, so I took myself off to my local thrift store especially to find a bigger vessel.
I found a big, beautiful, shallow glass bowl that was just perfect.
So here, just for you …
As I was photographing the bowl from different angles, the flowers kind of reminded me of a party … remember those?
Everyone all dressed up …
All the different types of people you might meet in a big gathering of strangers …
How you might hesitate and try to decide who looks most approachable in the crowd …
Colour, joy, friends, love, festivity … wishing us all more of these.
And, above all, peace.
