It was just like old times, a blast from the past. Apart from a couple of hours remission this morning, we have had unrelenting and increasingly invasive rain all day. Quite honestly it wasn’t a sentimental reunion; me with my noisy, sweaty, inhibiting waterproofs, I haven’t missed them at all. There was luckily a silver lining to this wash-out of a day, the Jacaranda seed kindly gifted by a blogging friend in Canada, the wonderful Botanically Inclined, has begun to germinate. I know it is early days, they have many trials to face, not the least being to survive the winter, but still it was a little triumph in my day. We all need at least one triumph, however small, per day. Doctor’s orders.
