Beauty after the storm

fuschia

Due to its very sheltered spot this is one of the few flowers not battered by the recent torrential rain and what a beauty it is. By the way, my sandbags and pump are ready for another round of thunderstorms overnight.

    Hope you survived the storms. Fushia’s were my granny’s favourite flower and these remind me of my summer holidays when we used to visit her in sunny Southport and play on the beach with no sand and where the tide never seemed to come in. Thanks 🙂

      Thank you. Lots of happy memories there. Simple things can be such a powerful link to the past. I have a similar connection to my granddad when I hear a blackbird singing. We survived the storm. In fact I slept through it, and although the sandbags were in place it looked like they weren’t needed. Not as bad as forecast it seemed. Thanks for your good wishes.

    Thanks so much for liking my first blog entry! I really appreciate that! I did not expect anyone to read, much less like, my first post!

    I will thank you again in tonight’s blog post and link to your profile!
