Flowers on a rainy day

Walking through the cottage garden this morning and all our flowers are sleeping,no colour,no blooms,I popped up my umbrella and listened to the sound of rain drops pitter pattering as i walked down the hill to town twiddling my brolly while dreaming of Spring,in and out of shops looking at this and looking at that,saying a cheery 'hello and a 'how are you?' and then in my favourite charity shop high up on a shelf i found these three tiny pots of china flowers in exchange for a few golden coins,i climbed the hill home,opened the gate and hurried down the garden path to be greeted by Beatrix and her wagging tail,i filled the sink with soapy water and gave every little petal a soapy wash and then arranged them on a little shelf in my kitchen below my Christie Repasy Designs Bible Verse rose and flower print,it's as if all the rain had opened every bloom filling our kitchen with flowers and just in time for a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake x


Wishing you all a lovely day x
