Cleansing The Palate Of The Mind

Daffodils
There is a lot going on in the world today from earthquakes and tsunamis to bombs and struggles. Sometimes it's good to step back from all of this and cleanse our minds with beauty and positivity. I personally do this by walking along the cliffs near to where I live or by looking at, and enjoying flowers.

The photos on this post are flowers from my garden last year. I'm no photographer but they do illustrate some of the wonderful things there are in the world.

River FalFootnote: The following day, after setting up this post, my wife and I went for a longish walk along the River Fal. We had our lunch with us so stopped to sit on a wooden bench seat.

The seat was there as a memorial and had a small plaque which read. "In memory of Arthur Toby (my dad's name was Arthur and our favourite dog was Toby) a man who always said we should take time to smell the flowers." He must have been a wise man and it was a pleasure to have shared our lunch with Arthur Toby while overlooking the river on a sunshine day.
