More Purple Flowers …


Hopefully you remember the glorious sight of these purple crocus form the other day – and there they are today in all their glory … but now look more closely at this picture of the next group along … why do people think it is okay to damage, trample and break them?Damaged Crocus

I was able to salvage this bloom and drop it in the fence upright (that some one has taken the cap off!) to get a macro shot … I left it there for a few more folk to enjoy before it wilts – I can enjoy it forever now!Crocus

I was on my way to  a meeting when I saw those – going back to Fairlie House to meet with someone else from Community Learning and Development … this time about volunteering to help share IT skills with the Job Club members.  In their little Community Garden I found one of my all time favourite springtime flowers – a purple drumstick primula

and on the way back I passed these pretty flowers

From purple flowers to small birds … a male Yellow Hammer posing on a fence

and  a cheeky pied wagtail showing off …

And the swooping flight of the lapwing


I am going to leave it there and come back to community stuff tomorrow – so much buzzing in my head that I need to sift!!!!

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
