Cardamon tea, seeds and stuff

If I thought the weather was glorious yesterday then that was because I'd not yet experienced today!

Drinking cardamon tea and planting lots more seeds.

Watching Hermione beaver away at her books in the sunshine.

The strawberries are showing. This is the first time I've grown strawberries from seed and am surprised at how long they have taken to germinate and how tiny they are.

Peas have made an appearance too.

The spring decor continues to grow. I think Miles has done ever so well with his door hanging - even big sis is suitably impressed!

Something else that made me feel joyful today was receiving an email from a friend which I have copied and pasted below.

In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.And, there on television, she said it was 'exciting.' Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day... like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which one will reach her waist first.

The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!

Maya Angelou said this:

'I've learned that no matter what happens,

or how bad it seems today,

life does go on,

and it will be better tomorrow.'
I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.'
'I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life .

''I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life.

''I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.'


'I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands;

you need to be able to throw some things back.' ~
'I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart,

I usually make the right decision.'

'I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.'


'I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.

People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.'


'I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.'


'I've learned that people will forget what you said,

people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.'

Oh, almost forgot to add this guy. I know I''ve posted him elsewhere today but I think he deserves much public acclaim for his obvious commitment and dedication to his hobby!
