My day was one of gentle stories which filled my heart.
I picked up a few leaves from the Acer Campestre - the field maple - which coated the pathway. They were soft and rain dampened - so no dry and rustling leaves to kick. After I'd taken my photograph I opened my fingers and let the wind carry them away. They lifted up and twirled about a bit then were caught by a strong gust and shot upwards eventually landing on the choppy waters.
I have always wanted to stop and 'talk' to this huge Willow tree every time I've walked by. However, it seems to be such a friendly fellow as it always have some one doing exactly that. Today's rough weather had chased away day trippers and fishermen so I finally got my chance. We sheltered beneath the huge branches as we donned waterproof trousers just in time as it began to rain in earnest shortly afterwards. I thanked the tree for his shelter and hoped I could pass the time of day with him again.
My day was filled with so many gentle stories, all woven together, slipping into each other and making me very happy.
Hope your Saturday had moments of joy and gentle happiness which made you smile too xxxx
