Heaven Scent...

Despite all the ups and downs recently, the month of May has brought plenty of inspiration. As some of you are already aware, the vagaries of weather, work (or lack of), emotion and cash flow, have just about been rescued from the brink of oblivion. Well, I do honestly hope so. Things are definitely, slowly changing for the better...
 For example.... check these out.... in the garden...
 All that's needed is a pot of fresh tea...

Yes, after the rains of April.... the flora of May.

And, once again, by the lovely pond of Wandsworth common...

... Then, a new friend emerges from the reeds...

I begin to suspect that all will once again be joyful. This has been a long journey, which is not over yet. But, I find it heartening to know that a little patience, faith and allowing Mother Nature to beguile...Are just the ingredients one needs for a small dose of hope and even success...
 So... it would seem that the dance of a swan, wild Iris dripped with gold and  the scented roses, were, in my opinion, sent from heaven...

To be continued...
