I don’t usually post more than one recipe in a week but today I have some time to myself and I feel there’s no time like the present. I still have loads of sorting out and unpacking stuff to do (and I did some of that this morning) but I definitely prefer sitting down and writing something useful here. Well, I’m letting you be the judge of whether I do come up with useful things or not. I love being here though so why not?
This is a simple photo taken while I was sadly parting with my Greek basil plant. It was the picture of health for months and months. Then suddenly parts of it started to dry up on me. I didn’t want it to go to waste, and instead of trying to save it and knowing that I would fail miserably, I decided that the best thing here was for me to keep the majority of it by cutting it, washing it, using some up and freezing what was left.
Out of sight out of mind, they say. True, for me at least. So was browsing through my photos and found this one. I took it during our visit to Winkworth Arboretum, but since publishing the Autumn ones in a previous post some days ago, I forgot that I had some other ones stashed in the file, waiting for a good excuse to appear here.
This is nothing special really, but something drew my eyes to the leaves and concrete forming an arrow on the pond. Lately I’ve been having some uncertainties about life and work in general. I almost gave up but looking at the arrow makes me think positive. Onwards I say…Also, I’m finding photography therapeutic and restorative to say the least. Being in quiet surroundings without no distractions helps me focus, and makes me happy…as long as I have my camera.
Thanks for dropping by.
