Dear Hearts...



... just to say I'll continue to be a bit scarce.  Lovely elder UK sister is coming over for a week, heroically really, having only just returned from New Zealand.  She was unable to make it for the funeral because of volcanic ash, but has been spending time with Az's family, so we'll have a lot to catch up on.

I'm not being so self-important as to apologise for not blogging myself; I'm well aware that even in the worst of times I do so with more than adequate frequency, and I may well post a few words and pictures anyway, but I am bothered that I am making a poor job of keeping up with all of yours, and I know that many of you have troubles a-plenty of your own.  Please be assured you are in my thoughts and much loved and appreciated.

See you soon.

I hope you enjoy the time with your sister.

And you have missed nothing over at mine - I haven't written anything in weeks.

No-one ever minds, you know. Really they don't.

How sickening for your sister, getting delayed by the ash on top of everything - and all the family, no doubt, must have found this an additional upset. I hope you have a good week together.

The photo is absolutely gorgeous and makes me feel quite a lot better on a really super-stressful, super-shitty, tear-my-hair-out kind of afternoon at work.

We are all just doing the best we can with what we have.

I've always loved unusual flowers like those bleeding harts, and columbine, and bougainvillea. It's like they really thought about it, and got creative.

I think that those are the most beautiful of bleeding hearts.

Do enjoy the company of your sister as you both move forward.

No worries, sweet Lucy! Drop by anytime and I'll have a (virtual) cellar-temperature brewski waiting for you! Good to know that you and older sis will be spending time together.

Be well and enjoy your sister's visit.

The photo is exquisite. We keep hearing about the horrors of nature, but nature contains such love in it as well and care.

Hearts hung out to dry! What a glorious picture.

And as to thoughts, love and appreciation, be assured in return, Lucy.

The picture, as if it is growing right out the post.

The volcanic ash has thrown a spanner in the works for many. Enjoy your time with your sister.

All things considered you have a pretty fair excuse.

Love the clarity and simplicity of the photo.

What a beautiful flower Bleeding Hearts are. Thank you for sharing your photos!

Cherish the time with your sister, no matter if the visit was delayed. We only have a short time on this earth to share our lives.

Life can be so tough... it says a lot that you're still able to see and share the beauty around you right now, albeit sporadically.

I enjoy looking at your life-filled pictures. Congratulations on your blog of note status a few months back. You can see my photos at http://levonnesprettypics.blogspot.com/

I've never seen dicentra look more like the "bleeding hearts" that everyone calls them.

I hope you've had a lovely visit with your sister.
