Flowers of patience

All summer long our garden has been a building site, piles of rubble and mud lying here and there. It’s been a waiting game; waiting for builders, electricians, plasterers… but life will not wait, it doesn’t know how.

Flowers of patience

Flowers-of-patienceSo at times when I felt frustrated with the lack of progress in the garden, this image of beautiful flowers, rising from nothing but a heap of rubbish has made me stop and smile.

 

It’s reminded me that life just goes on, it won’t wait ‘till the patio’s done, or the garden bench’s been built – life just carries on, irrespective of anything else.
