Aha.... you probably think I'm feeling a bit 'grey' this Monday morning. Waking up to yet another overcast, dull dawn, I have to admit the thought did cross my mind to just pull the covers back over my head.
But one of my faithful affirmations that always help me get back on track sprang unbidden to mind, "I choose to wake up with vitality and good humour." Funny how it starts to do its work just to say it. So I hop out of bed, make a pot of coffee, and decide to enjoy my day as if the skies were blue and the sun was shining.
Wanting to add some color to my posting, I found the picture of what my evening scented stocks look like this summer. They were my 'gift from heaven' as a huge patch self-seeded and unexpectedly filled a corner in the garden. Evening scented stocks aren't much to look at during the daytime, but when they open their tiny blossoms and let the evening breezes catch their scent, they more than make up for their reason for being!
