How do I feel? I want to catch this moment! Paint it, sing it, tell it, share it!
The sun is warm – yes! – and blinding me as I write this.
Ten minutes in the garden, I’ve been telling myself. It’s a way to get started. Well, it always stretches, doesn’t it? That’s a good thing though.
So, today it was the turn of our ‘wildflower patch’. It was so successful last year but over the winter it had become covered in long grasses and piles of damp leaves.
I picked up the long handled rake ready to attack then suddenly noticed a fresh green shoot sticking up. Of course! I had planted some bulbs in the autumn. I’d nearly forgotten about them. What a gift!
With care, I raked away. More and more shoots began to appear and the ground cleared easily.
I’m a bit nervous, will the wildflower area be as good as last year with so many insects enjoying the flowers? Well, I guess only time will tell but now I feel at least we’re off to a good start.
So my thought for the day? Begin with ten minutes and scrape away carefully, let’s see what’s underneath. It’s a trick I’m trying with my writing.
Looking forward to using this – a gift from a lovely friend!

This is exactly what I plan on doing as I begin a new draft, Sareen – raking away what’s not needed! x
I’m sure you’ll strike gold!
