When I’m out running I often think how lucky I am to live where I do, within 5 minutes I can be in the countryside surrounded by greenery and visually pleasing landscapes. Within just a 10 minute walk there is a field of flowers where you can go along, cut your own flowers and put the money in an ‘honesty’ box.
I’ve often run past it but had never actually been before so, on Sunday, we decided to take a stroll and pick some flowers.
What a beautiful place, there is something really peaceful about being surrounded by flowers, especially sunflowers, they are so bright and cheery, how can that shot of yellow sunshine not brighten up your day?
Little Miss loved choosing her two (which Daddy dutifully cut for her) and took the responsibility of carrying them carefully home very seriously.
Once home she also helped to fill a jug, cut the stems to size and arrange them. They now have pride of place in my hall and make me smile each time I go past.
Maybe next week we’ll go back and pick some Gladioli.
What makes you feel lucky to live where you do?
