It’s often the simple things in life that makes all the difference. The past few weeks saw the emerging of purple crocuses painting the lawns purple, lively bushes of snowdrops seem to sprung up overnight and the daffodils have surprised us in early December. But none of those made my heart smile as much as this little posy of wild growing park flowers. My little 4-year-old daughter picked them for me on the way home from school. The simple things are often the best; we must just open ourselves up to them more often and make time to stop to smell and roses, in this case, the daffodils!
PS: Incidentally, all the flowers she picked happen to match the colours in my dress I wore that day, just perfectly, a stylists dream!
