My Oh My! A Magical Moment...
Last week Captain V and I drove to Brisbane to pick up the children after their week long holiday with their mum. It was a glorious spring morning when they arrived and as we had no set plan for the day, we took a little detour on our way home. What happened next was true serendipity - unexpected and lovely.
Captain V took us on a trip down memory lane, visiting many of his childhood haunts and showing the children places which hold special memories for him, it was a wonderful experience for all of us.
You can imagine my delight when I spied this grove of Jacaranda trees in a little suburban park.
What thrilled me most was that instead of their usual lilac blossoms, their boughs were adorned with a ring of Chinese lanterns which bobbed and swayed in the breeze.
Of course I made Captain V stop the car and we all hopped out to admire this little gift that someone had thoughtfully left for others to enjoy. I hope it brings a smile to your face as it did mine.
Happy week my friend, I hope that you are gifted with moments of serendipity as lovely as this.
