New shoots

There have been some awful things happening in London in the last few weeks. I look at the news and each day seems to bring a new saddness. I have been luckily unaffected by all that has happened, but am so aware that many people living in my city have been affected and I think of them. I’m not going to write about in ins and outs of what has happened, because there are so many more eloquent voices than mine doing so. I struggle at the moment to really put into words what I feel about it all.

Amongst all of the awfulness I do feel it is important to take notice of moments of light. I stepped out in the garden this morning and found this beauty. We put courgette seeds in this year a bit later than is ideal, but thought we would pop a few seeds in to the soil to see how we would get on. Two week later and we have been rewarded.
