It occurred to me today that I have my own "language of flowers" going on in my home right now.
This is a bunch of sunshine in a jug. "These are to cheer you up" and the flowers and hugs from my son and his fiancee have certainly done the trick!
I am on sick leave right now. Five weeks of ear infection and three lots of antibiotics has resulted in a lump forming on my ear drum. A stay in hospital and an operation lies ahead. So I am at home taking it easy, taking more meds, and taking time to smell the roses on my living room window sill.
And in the hall a potted plant says "Welcome home!"
I sigh a huge sigh of relief and gratitude as I walk into this space.
I love flowers but I am appreciating them even more this week as I rest.
