Strange times

Mothering Sunday and we woke to sunshine. But what a strange day. We had planned to spend it with our grandson and family but since we are in the self-isolating bracket we remained in our own space, thankful that ours is a generous plot.
The community are rallying wonderfully to the crisis. I phoned the local garden centre this morning and tomorrow they are going to deliver my order. Local pubs have changed to providing ready meals and there are offers from the younger members of our small hamlet to collect any items that we might need when they shop for themselves.
A lovely bouquet from Heidi to celebrate Mothering Sunday
and cards
from our vegetarian daughter
and from Wee One of her beautiful boy.
No cuddles and wild games for months to come,
that's going to be the hardest thing!

    1. Oh, yes, it is hard to not being with our grandchildren as they change and grow. Precious stages of their lives are gone so quickly, but since we want to still be around when they reach adulthood it's best to stay in isolation!

  3. Do you play the piano?
    Funny card from your vegetarian daughter!
    Your garden is your own personal paradise - now more than ever.

    1. Our daughters are the musicians, piano, oboe and 'cello. The house is very quiet now that they live elsewhere.
      I think the garden is going to get a lot of attention this year!

    1. Yes, being isolated from those you love is hard, Merle, but far better than catching the virus or passing it on to others.
