We all need a touch of magic in our lives now and again. I’ve been feeling really fed up about the state of my garden. I’ve not had the energy to tidy it up, or even to think about what to do with it this year. But today it snowed, and suddenly I was in love in all over again.
A sprinkling of snow and all the pots that should have been tidied up, all the plants that should have been cut back, are transformed. My garden made me smile again.
Leaves edged in white turn otherwise dull evergreens into pieces of living sculpture.
Even old garden chairs become interesting.
Sitting here, typing this, I can hear the shrieks of excited children outside, getting cold noses and fingers and not caring – at least until later. I hope that you get a little bit of magic in your life today too.
