Announcements, foliage and soup.

1. Text messages and Facebook updates indicating that a crowd of my friends have got engaged on Valentine's Day.

2. Gardeners carrying the remains of a laurel tree to a trailer look like shaggy leaf monsters.

3. The smell of chicken soup creeps through the house, quietly putting everything to rights.


  1. This is a lovely way to blog! And I share your feelings about the smell of chicken soup - homely, comforting and delicious :)

  2. Shaggy leaf monsters!

    I love the imagery in #3. It sounds like the first line of a cozy, delightful novel.
