R gave me this lovely bushy outdoor plant that she rescued from IKEA. I think it shed very single leaf and grew a new set immediately it received some tlc. I’ve just finished planting it in this pot. I found three of these pots around the back of the chalet and bought enough compost to fill them all. Just need to decide what to plant in them. And I know practically nothing about plants, so suggestions (and/or help if you are local) would be welcome!
I also bought a variety of daffodil bulbs to plant on the bank around the lake. This spring there were no daffodils here and I missed them.
I seem to have had a particularly peaceful week. I was going to drive to a caravan supply shop in Chesterfield on Wednesday, but the day was too good to spend driving and shopping so I put off the trip and stayed home. Sometimes – often – I want to stick to plans. I think I have a reputation for being well-organised (some who know me may be grinning at the understatement). So being able to loosen up, tune in to what feels good to do right now and change my plans is a step in the right direction for me. For someone else it might be quite different. There is a teaching story of a Buddhist master who was asked why he gave one piece of advice to one person and the complete opposite to another. He said: if I see a person riding a bicycle and he is getting too close to the ditch on the left I say “go right!” and if he is too close to the ditch on the right I say “go left!”
