My favourite tale from our copy of Aesop’s Fables is The Hare and The Tortoise.
I’ve always thought I identified with the tortoise, plodding along one step at a time.
So, this year I’ve decided to embrace the tortoise in me and hope to advance with new habits slowly.
Thinking about this I know not everything will be perfect.
I planted hyacinth bulbs back in September. to my delight they flowered, the single one producing the beautiful flower that I’m now using for my main photo.
The three in the pot were a bit leggy really but the scent was lovely. Definitely a win win!
So I’ll continue to plod on but I have realised recently that there is something of the hare in me – and no, it’s not the habit of having a nap! I can be speedy when needed, it’s just that I’ve learnt, like the tortoise, slow and steady helps me win my own race in my own way.
