The pieris is flaming up and adding a bit of heat to the garden colour.
Then..... one of the lads comes into my office and gives me this.....and gives me a hug to say thank you for giving him a job all those years ago and for the help I've given in the intervening years
I am touched and thrilled.
And then as I'm waiting outside by the coffee van for my latte these arrive..... from friends and colleagues to say best of luck in the future
They smell heavenly....
So without the sun my mood is lifted and I feel ready to move on.
