..and then this happened.


If you have read my last few posts you will know that 2022 was not a good year for my family, and by that I mean it was the worst of years! After a long and courageous battle with cancer my younger sister passed away in October and then after avoiding Covid during 2020/2021 my whole extended family succumbed just before Christmas 2022, what timing! The year was saved by the arrival of my Sydney famille, grandchildren are the best. Somewhere in the blur of that period I planted many dahlia seedlings, far too late in the season and just when I was about to give up hope of them flowering this cheery beauty looked up at me. My heart breaks every time I watch the news these days, the earthquake in Turkey/Syria is beyond devastating, so many lives lost. There is a lot to deal with in the world these days, we have to find that little bit of hope wherever we find it 🌺 One of these days I will take up my camera and tread further than my garden :)
