Yesterday is history
Tomorrow is a mystery
Today is a gift
That is why it’s called
So why did I type out this short poem – found in my Church Magazine – ? Well, because today I did get a gift – the sun! It was a case of making the most of the present while the weather was dry. Tomorrow, for this area anyway, is not likely to be a mystery as the forecast is for R**N. So what did I achieve in this unusual day given to me? I persuaded my husband to cut the grass, and he had time to get most of it done. I then tidied the edges, and was so pleased to see the garden looking so much better. I cut back a whole lot of hardy Geraniums and did some dead-heading too. I planted all the plants awaiting attention, even those I’d grown from seed. We shared a magical time, too. While we were grass cutting and edging, about a dozen Swifts came swooping and weaving around us. They took no notice of our presence or of Henry who always ‘helps’ in the garden! Now that was indeed a very special gift.
