Monday Musings…2nd May 2022…

Welcome to Monday Musings where I share some things that have thrilled me, made me think or smile or even have a mini-rant although doesn’t happen often during the last week…April has flown by and now we are at the beginning of May…wow…

This beautiful song was recommended by Darlene in response to my Saturday Snippets one-word prompt which was “Blue”…Sung by Blue Rodeo “Try”

Thank you, Darlene I loved this it’s now on my song list…

Sometimes inspiration and hope come from an unlikely source and when you least expect it…in so much as you didn’t know it was staring you in the face…Thank you, Pete and Rebecca x

I have been out in the garden this morning repotting a couple of plants and picking some chillies and long peppers I have dried quite a few now and looking forward to using them in a recipe…they are quite a rare and a little-used pepper now…yesterday evening we had the last of our Chinese greens but they have served us really well we have had a few meals worth of greens from just 3 plants ..tomorrow I am going to plant some more seeds as we really like the Chinese Greens…they grow quickly and keep cropping if you pick as soon as the flowers appear…

Having done my early morning gardening I then came in to have my Oolong tea and check the blogs I follow…This one resonated with me and it is so true THAT like our gardens …kindness and smiles are cherished and remembered…

A smile, a wave, a wink or a nod: simple gestures that can actually have lasting ramifications. We have no idea how many people we touch in a single day, a single hour and yet touch them we do. And that’s where the seeds take root…to read the original post written by Pamela whose blog is Butterfly Sand please click this link…

It is a perfect post on how we can pay it forward and watch how it grows just like our seeds in the garden x

That’s all for Monday Musings this week thank you for joining me, I do as always look forward to your comments x

    I’m so envious. I tried planting Bok Choy and it bolted almost before it had any leaves. Spinach and parsley did great though. Have a new batch coming along – all self-seeded. 😀 Have a great week, Carol.

    Lovely post Carol… I too spent my Holiday weekend out in nature and in the garden… What better way to spend one’s time I will have to explore Oolong tea! 🙂 I’ve been drinking lots of nettle tea and Dandelion Tea lately…
    and I am sure Carol you touch and plant many a seed in the heart that takes root on all whom you meet and greet.. ❤
    Much love ❤

    I’m glad you can be thrilled, a good sign of an engaged life, which you show here–actually on all of your blog posts. I am familiar with Pete Springer and we follow each other’s blogs. Have a good week, Carol! 😀

    Blue Rodeo is a new one for me. Thanks for the shoutout, Carol. Rebecca is a great interviewer with the perfect voice for any audio recording.
