I went on an adventure today. I actually just went for a walk but I ended up walking more than anticipated and my calculations are that I covered 14km. I'm now freckled and sore but full of the joys of life. As I walked in the sunshine, my mind wandered. Strangely it wandered on to my sister quite a bit. Hence, the title of this blog. My sister always said 'Il y a beaucoup de fleurs' (there are a lot of flowers) and today, there were flowers EVERYWHERE So many colours, so many scents. We are told so many times to remember to smell the roses. Today, spring just took over my nostrils. My senses in reality. The grass was warm, dogs were splashing about in the river chasing sticks, Wild flowers were bursting with colour The sun was sparkling on the water And a peculiar sweetness lingered in the air. It was a beautiful day to be outside. Anyway, back to my point about Marguerite. I have seeing cherry blossoms everywhere which I always associate with her.
