Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, my friends! I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Mine was very relaxing after a very busy week. So busy, in fact, that I didn’t step out once into the garden - despite the beautiful weather - until yesterday. For only the second time this spring. But it was Mother’s Day, so I treated myself to a stroll among the flower beds with my camera in hand. And discovered to my absolute delight *squee* that there are beautiful blooms everywhere. Like this one:

This is the lovely Helleborus 'Peppermint Ice'.

Ah, the joys of spring.

Now how about some humour? Let’s do it!








Wishing you all a wonderful day and week!

    1. Yup, no need to worry about getting down to your original weight. It's an unrealistic goal :)
