Still Hopeful


12th January

One of our neighbours has a row of beautiful gerberas along their driveway. Doesn't this one have a gorgeous sunny face. If you look carefully you will see a small bud at the far right of the photo. Let me share its story with you.

At this point our current wet weather set in. Each day since has been cloudy and showery with more predicted.

I think it's beautiful, keeping its head bowed over as if just waiting for some sunshine so it can show it's pretty face, radiant to the world. I'm hoping it has the chance to do just that.
