Earlier this week our home was broken in to while I was volunteering and a treasured senior member of our family passed away. Since then I've been especially focused on gratitude. I am thankful for the smallest of things...that my husband and daughters are well and safe, that Walter our cat was fine though a little shaken and didn't leave through the wide open door, that material things are just that, that our local RCMP are so kind and helpful, that so many friends step up in great measure when things are not the way they should be, that my studio is still a place of sanctuary...that and the beauty of the wildflowers that are beginning to grow. I remember when I found these lovely flowers with my name many years ago. The Veronica Speedwell is a dainty, almost fairy-like flower that grows in pinks and periwinkles which are lovely. I've grown them in my gardens as long as I've been married and though my last batch didn't survive last summer's hailstorm, I'm hoping their roots survived and that they thrive once again.
