Bluebells


Today my husband and I went through to the west of Scotland to visit friends who live in Kilbarchan. It was raining (again) but we took umbrellas and went for a walk through woods filled with bluebells. This is a photo taken on the outskirts of the wood. It was a lovely sight and a bit of a Wordsworth's "Daffodils" occasion. I'm sure I'll remember the bluebells for ever and they'll make my heart fill with pleasure.

I've known the woman of the couple since we met in primary school at age 5 - in 1955 - and her husband since we were 22. It's good to meet up with old friends - though new ones are good too.

I agree how great it is to meet up with old friends, but also appreciate new ones in my life.

Favorite smells:
Roses and daphne
Freshly bathed babies
Home baking and the smell of sausages cooking on a BBQ (a hard thing to resist:)
