Simply 6 Minutes: 19th April

Christine at Stine Writing is our hostess for this particular photo challenge.
This week our picture is from balconygardenweb-lhnfx0beomqvnhspx.netdna-ssl.com

Nan loved her garden but towards the end of her life, grew anxious about climate change and the effect it had on her plants.
The snowdrops and crocuses were always a beautiful sight, as were her daffodils and tulips, but when there was heavy snow in May, her mind went into overdrive.
‘Snow is acceptable on Christmas cards, mountain tops and ski resorts all year,’ she said,
‘but not here in the summer!’
When we visited a week later, we were greeted with a rather unusual, but somehow charming sight amongst the roses.
Nan had knitted little outfits for her border plants which now stood in regimental rows like small children at a school assembly.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
