Often the flowers that thrill me the most are the volunteers that spring up unbidden - sometimes in the lawn rather than the garden.
Years ago I planted some grape hyacinths in our front garden, but these days they spring up anywhere they like. I love their wild abandon!

Today is a day when Christians wait, the day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Imagine how those first disciples felt - their saviour had been crucified and their faith was being tested while they waited for something to happen. They didn't know exactly what to expect would happen next. It was a time of great uncertainty.
The "Covid-times" are a lot like that for me - waiting for something new to happen. I'm not sure exactly what I'm waiting for, just for better times ahead, I guess.
And so, in this waiting time, I continue to do the only thing I can, put one foot in front of the next and practice the lessons that my faith teaches me - to worry only about today and to rejoice in today.
When I look at this watercolor attempt I'm tempted to fill this space with "should haves". I should have used better paper, for sure. But learning and practicing the skill of painting is a lot like life - we always get another chance tomorrow.
This is the day that the Lord has made - let us rejoice and be glad in it! - Psalm 118:24

Meet Toto, my new toilet. I've learned more about toilets in the last week than I care to, but at least I've not been so preoccupied with the pandemic! We didn't have our pick of toilets - our house is so old that my tub and sink are almond/beige. It's a little hard to find toilets in that color, apparently.
And yes, I will draw anything, including mops and toilets. Whatever I'm thinking about!
