|For-get-me-nots, such pleasure from a pack of seeds, 2016|
Wandering around in the early part of the day, making my mental list of what needs to be done, I come across the bleeding heart my mother gave me years ago, that I always suspected she dug out of the woods; tiny, with delicate foliage.

The dandelions and cowslip make the biggest splash, dotting the lawn with their exuberant joy. I laugh as J. cuts the lawn and 10 minutes later the dandelion are standing up tall and proud;you can almost hear them laughing "Ha, ha, didn't get me" And their puff balls are a marvel of engineering and seed dispersal as they helicopter about the air.
