Me basking in the daisies.

Look what came through my door this morning - a portrait of me basking in the grass among the daisies and dandelions.   My great grand daughter, Ula, aged three, did it for me.   It seems so long since I saw her because of lockdown and what a delight it was to get this.   A pressed dandelion and a pressed daisy stuck on and enough green for me to know I am lying in the grass.   It has pride of place on the mantelpiece in my sitting room and I am so pleased with it.   Thank you Ula.   I am sending you a thank you note and will post it to catch tomorrow's post so watch out for it.   Your Mummy got the wrong address and put 9 instead of 19 but the Postman rang the bell because he thought I lived at 19 - that was clever of him.

Yesterday I had my friend D's twelfth 'Lockdown card' - each Saturday he posts me a card of a flower from The Lake District.   I watch out for it coming and each week it too gives me such a lot of pleasure.   We never thought it would go on so long - up to twelve now and no end of lockdo wn in sight for people of my age.   Thank goodness for all the lovely kind people about who ring me, send me letters and cards, generally help to keep life flowing along.   I thank every one of you.   You know who you are.

A chilly day here and just starting to rain again - but we really did urgently need water in the gardens so we have no cause to complain.   I seem to remember that a couple of years ago when I had my first Summer here we had a very dry spell at this time in the year and everything looked as though it was dying - except the Mares Tail of course!

A great drawing for you Weave. I love her choice of colours and the pressed daisy and dandelion are great. Mixed media on paper.

You must put it in a frame Pat - it's pretty and so precious!

We must keep "keeping on" as they say.
There's enough bad news over here to make one want to give up though - very stressful days now!

That's one to treasure.

Bonnie said...

That is a lovely and precious gift! She is so creative to put real pressed flowers on it for you. It definitely deserves a special place to be displayed!

I like the way Mares Tail has become a sort of dominating feature in your life. (Though I expect you feel the opposite - that you wish mare's tail didn't feature in your life at all!)

Your great-granddaughter is already artistic. What a treasured picture. How nice to receive regular cards from your friend too. One of my daughters sent me a homemade card with a new design to show how she has been occupying herself during lockdown. She makes all her own cards.
Quite chilly here today too and a bit more rain. I think we are due more tomorrow and then next week is supposed to be warmer again. We will see.

I was searching for loan to sort out my bills& debts, then i saw comments about Blank ATM Credit Card that can be hacked to withdraw money from any ATM machines around you . I doubted thus but decided to give it a try by contacting { cyberhackingcompany@gmail.com} they responded with their guidelines on how the card works. I was assured that the card can withdraw $5,000 instant per day & was credited with$50,000,000.00 so i requested for one & paid the delivery fee to obtain the card, after 24 hours later, i was shock to see the UPS agent in my resident with a parcel{card} i signed and went back inside and confirmed the card work's after the agent left. This is no doubts because i have the card & has made used of the card. This hackers are USA based hackers set out to help people with financial freedom!!
