‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

I am cheating a little with these photos as they were actually taken last Sunday on our way back from Cornwall.  We drove past a sunflower field and so much to the boy’s disgust I had to turn around and go back. It is the first one I have ever come across one in the UK. Although I wasn’t allowed to stay very long I did manage a couple of photos of the field itself and of the boys. And for once I actually appeared in them.

As you read this, in theory, we should be in France for the next three weeks.  I have written this post before we left on Sunday. But with all the changes constantly, part of me is wondering if we will actually make it. If we do I am hoping to find some more sunflower fields.

Hope you have a lovely week

    Gosh what a difference a few weeks makes, people coming back from France now have to self isolated from today. These uncertain times ever changing but one thing is for sure nature never fails to amaze. What a wonderful memory at a time of uncertainty
