An Act of Remembering…

Walking through the gardens of St Paul’s Cathedral in London recently, I noticed this bench…IMG_20191031_183412_resized_20191031_063444178 (1) bench st Pauls Cathedral

…and the plaque on it. I don’t know who Sandra Archer was or who arranged for this act of remembering… family, friends or colleagues…IMG_20191031_183247_resized_20191031_063318411 (3) plaque on bench St Pauls Cathedral

Our family did this recently, after my husband died. A plaque on a bench, under a tree at Hope Gardens…IMG_20191031_182517_resized_20191031_062634120 (1) tree and bench at Hope Gardens

Not Always The Most Beautiful: Weekly Photo Challenge – 2017 Favourites

“To celebrate the end of the year, share the most meaningful photo you’ve taken in 2017.”

An impossible challenge! All the flowers, the sunsets, the clouds! Just one photo? The most meaningful? Impossible!

But what I will share is this one, taken one morning at Hope Gardens. One of the ground staff was cutting away dead branches on a palm tree. I took a series of photos of him as he cut, but I wasn’t successful in capturing the energy and skill of his actions. Then he stuck his machete in the grass, as he dragged the cut branches away. This one said so much to me.P1180552
