Today we woke to a very welcome sight: Miss Sapphire waiting in her customary look out at the gate. Though far from recovered, she is certainly looking perkier. Bouquet number one.
Due to a troubled sleep, the majority of the human Homesteaders witnessed this morning’s sunrise. It was crisp and clear and breathtaking. No photos but, believe me, it was bouquet number two.
Social bouquets were aplenty: my GP’s bragging photos of his recently constructed glasshouse (he also did some health related stuff too), a long gossip about everything and nothing at the chemists, and a very surprised rave review of Sapphire’s appearance this morning from Ashleigh the Vet.
Then in the afternoon, a visit from two of my favourite off-Homestead people
and a real bouquet from their new-home garden. Today I am walking with a Spring in my step.
